Safer streets for all!

People Friendly Streets are now being trialled in Highbury.
We are a group of local residents who think this is really good news.

In recent years, traffic has significantly increased in Highbury, affecting residents' safety, health, well-being and sleep. Navigation apps have led to thousands of vehicles using Islington residential streets each day. So we welcome the Council's plan to reduce traffic in Highbury West and Highbury Fields to ensure it’s safer for children to walk, cycle or scoot to school, and for all of us to shop and work and exercise - whilst maintaining vehicle access for all.

CONSULTATION: Loving Highbury’s low traffic scheme? Tell the Council to make it permanent.
Fill in LBI's surveys by 14th March

These measures have not yet been made permanent. Islington Council is running a crucial consultation until 14th March 2022. If you want to keep our streets safer and cleaner, please fill in what will most likely be the final consultation and email our councillors.
