There is a wealth of literature about the challenges we all face in reimagining our public spaces.
A good place to start would be this piece by Councillor Danny Adilypour from January 2022 explaining the rationale for making our LTN and the one in the Railton Road area in Brixton permanent. (He also details some of the efforts to ‘game’ the consultations on the two schemes.)
An excellent journalistic treatment of the issues at stake and account of the state of the play soon after the scheme was launched can be found in this accurate and well-balanced Observer article published in September 2020.
And here is a selection of further reading about the Oval Triangle Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN), Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in general and other related material.
