LTN west of Leigham Court Road

Artist drawing outside Julians School

Streatham Wells LTN proposed map Have your say on the plans to trial the streets between Leigham Court Road and Streatham High Road SW16 as a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in 2023. This LTN is to be called Streatham Wells LTN.

Through traffic will go around the area marked by Leigham Court Rd, Streatham High Rd and Streatham Common North. See map:[ pdf ]

To look at and comment on details of the proposed scheme please go to: https://beta.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/streatham-wells-low-traffic-neighbourhood-0  The deadline for comments is 12 noon on Friday 23rd December.

The “Street Improvements” section includes plans to widen the pavement on Leigham Court Rd near Dunraven School and opposite the petrol station – removing parking from #153-213. A raised crossing is proposed for St Julians Farm Road opposite Julians school.

Reducing traffic in LTNs make the LTN area into a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for walking and cycling. Rat running traffic through the roads east of Leigham Court Road ( eg Knollys Road, Broxholm Road, Canterbury Grove, Leaf Grove ) may reduce too.
