Public Consultation – Primrose Hill 20mph Area and Improvements

Closed 12 Oct 2012

Opened 10 Sep 2012

Results expected 1 Nov 2012


The Council has developed a number of proposals to make Primrose Hill a safer place for residents, businesses and visitors. This leaflet sets out these proposals, and as a local resident, business or group, this is your opportunity to let us know what you think.

Residents in the area have highlighted concerns about traffic speeds and road safety. Our studies have shown that Primrose Hill has a higher than average number of road traffic collisions. Previous projects elsewhere in Camden have shown that introducing 20 mph areas can significantly reduce traffic speeds as well as the number and severity of casualties. Lower traffic speeds can also encourage walking and cycling and help create more pleasant streets.

The proposed 20mph area would consist of the minimum amount of signs along with a small number of measures to encourage lower traffic speeds as well as making it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross streets.
