Haverstock Hill - 20mph Limit And Road Safety Public Realm Improvements Consultation

Closed 9 Dec 2011

Opened 10 Nov 2011

Results expected 23 Dec 2011

Overview

We are seeking your views on the Council’s proposals to improve road safety on Haverstock Hill, including introducing a 20mph limit.
The road is also a communal area, with restaurants and shops bordering the station and nearby residential area. There has been a higher than average number of road casualties on Haverstock Hill over the past three years.
The section by Belsize Park Underground station is of particular concern due to a high number of collisions.
For this reason, a 20mph limit and traffic calming measures have been proposed to improve safety on this road. The proposed measures include replacing an existing pelican crossing with a zebra crossing to provide a more convenient way to cross and encourage slower driving speeds, and providing more parking for residents and businesses.

For more information please see the attached leaflet.

Why We Are Consulting

We are consulting because we would like to know if there broad public support for the proposals set out in the attached leaflet. 

What Happens Next

While it will not be possible to reply to you individually, all comments will be taken into account. The Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Transport will make a decision whether or not to proceed with the scheme and you will be informed via the council’s website of the outcome of this consultation within three months, where possible.
