The report was presented by Councillor Patrick Codd, the Cabinet Member for

said they reflected the COP26 accords to tackle climate change by aiming to

reduce the number of car journeys as part of the process.

 

Councillor Paul Maslin, the Chair of Overview and Scrutiny confirmed the

Business Panel would scrutinise the outcomes reached by the Cabinet at their

next meeting on Tuesday January 25.

 

Councillor Louise Krupski, the Chair of the Sustainable Development Select

Committee, reported that her Select Committee had considered the proposals

and had expressed a range of views.

 

Councillor James Rathbone, a Lee Green Ward Councillor outlined the history

of the proposals since 2019 and expressed support for the latest

recommendations

 

Councillor Mark Ingleby, the Mayor’s Cycling Champion, added his support for

the recommendations.

 

Rosamund Addo Kissi-Debra, mother of Ella Roberta, attended saying she

was present to represent her remaining children. Their health had been

monitored during the operation of the LTN and she remained concerned about

the effects of pollution on young people. She suggested that rather than be

made permanent, the LTN only be extended by six months. She reserved the

right to seek a possible Judicial Review on the Cabinet’s decision.

 

Brian Turpin representing Lewisham Cyclists suppoted the case made by

Councillor Ingleby and asked that the LTN be made permanent.

 

In concluding the debate, the Mayor said difficult decisions had to be made.

He believed he should follow the evidence on air quality and traffic counts

which demonstrated behavioural change had taken place. In supporting the

recommendations he asked that there be continuous monitoring over the next

six months and a report come back to Cabinet.
