Camera-enforced Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) restrictions

Information and imagery of the LTN restrictions as of March 2021.
We are aware of an issue with an enforcement camera on Leahurst Road

The camera has been incorrectly issuing fines to vehicles travelling west to east, from Hither Green towards Lee Green. This route is permitted and any fines issued will be cancelled. Where drivers have already paid a fine in relation to this route they will be automatically refunded. We apologise for this error and we are working quickly to resolve the issue.

Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) restrictions

Where are the Low Traffic Neighbourhood restrictions in place?

The Lewisham and Lee Green LTN has a mixture of modal filters. The modal filters used are:

  • Physical barriers
  • Camera enforcement

The camera-enforced restrictions are in place at five locations in the LTN.

  • Manor Lane
  • Manor Park
  • Ennersdale Road
  • Dermody Road
  • Leahurst Road

More details of the restrictions at these locations can be found below.

Why are the Low Traffic Neighbourhood restrictions important?

The Lewisham and Lee Green LTN is one of many introduced by local authorities across London, as part of a strategy to make it safer to travel on foot or by bike in response to COVID-19.

In February 2019, Lewisham Council declared a climate emergency and these measures are an important step towards reducing car use and improving air quality for everyone.

Lewisham Council’s long-term transport strategy and climate commitments support a shift away from private car use. Sustainable modes of travel such as walking, cycling and public transport are encouraged. Fewer than 50 per cent of Lewisham households own a car, but we are all affected by poor air quality, congestion and noise pollution.

Driving less and walking more can improve our health and wellbeing, which is now more important than ever. Not every journey can be made without a car, but we want to enable all those who can to walk or cycle. Walking or cycling frees up space on public transport and roads for those who can’t.

What happens if a driver ignores a camera enforced Low Traffic Neighbourhood restriction?

The LTN restrictions are enforced by CCTV cameras.

When a motorist is observed driving through a camera enforced LTN restriction, a clip is sent to a review team. The review team will request details from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). The DVLA will inform us of who is the Registered Keeper of the vehicle. A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to that person by post within 28 days.

Once a PCN is issued, a payment of £130 must be made. A discounted rate of £65 is offered if payment is made within 14 days. The amount due will increase over time if the PCN is unpaid.

Any unpaid PCNs will eventually be passed to an enforcement agent for debt collection.

Are Blue Badge holders exempt from the camera enforced Low Traffic Neighbourhood restrictions?

Lewisham Blue Badge holders can obtain an exemption by following the process outlined on our website.

Lewisham Blue Badge holders must receive confirmation that their exemption has been processed before driving through the LTN restrictions.
