Following the announcement that the first Consultation on Islington's People Friendly Streets implementation in St. Peter's started (more information at #lowtrafficislington), it is worth pointing to some research done by Possible. In July this year, volunteers for Possible knocked on doors in four cities - Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London - to listen to communities about their experience of nearby traffic filters. This is what they found:
They talked to 272 households in total and found that 84.9 percent of people living on streets with traffic filters want to keep their filter, compared with just 8.1 percent who want to remove it, and that people's love for their filter grows over time. For the full report, visit Possible here.
