We have come across a website which has lots of information on the behaviour of the Local Councillors. Some excerpts from their article. 

Quote 1
‘We already knew from our Facebook group stats that women were the majority in every age category’, explains HHRC member Ruth Parkinson. ‘Clearly the issue of road closures is particularly hard-felt among women.’

Quote 2
Still, politicians and policymakers say these closures are for people’s own benefit, whether they realise it or not. Given this attitude, it is no surprise politicians have no interest in engaging with the people in whose interests they are supposedly developing LTN schemes. Rather, they see it as their job to impose the schemes on people, so as to change or modify their behaviour. As the Department for Transport puts it, ‘Changes [brought about by LTNs] will help embed altered behaviours and demonstrate the positive effects of active travel’.

The undemocratic nature of the implementation of LTNs is striking, especially those rolled out during lockdown. But it is also unsurprising: councils know that if they put LTNs to a vote, they would likely be rejected. For instance, when Hackney residents were consulted in 2016, they rejected proposals to close several roads by almost 70 per cent. One of those most responsible for eventually closing Hackney roads, former councillor Jon Burke, even said he had no interest in consulting ‘rat-runners’.
