Low traffic neighbourhood exemptions
Following an extensive listening exercise, which included 3 rounds of engagement, the council’s Cabinet agreed in December 2021 to introduce trial low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) in Bounds Green, Bruce Grove West Green and St. Ann’s as part of our Haringey Streets for People initiative. The aim is to reduce through traffic, improve air quality and support residents and visitors to walk, cycle, and shop locally.
Meeting the needs of residents with access and disability needs was an important part of the low traffic neighbourhood design process. Following feedback, the Cabinet Member for Climate Action, Environment and Transport considered a variety of options and approved motor vehicle exemptions for the following:
- Emergency services
- Council refuse and cleansing
- Blue Badge holders living within or on the immediate boundary of an LTN
- Blue Badge holders living within the Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood (Enfield)
- Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) transport
- Haringey Council services and commissioned services transporting people with a disability and Transport for London’s Dial-a-Ride service
- Urgent safety matter
- Individual circumstance exemption, which covers (subject to application):
- a person, or person with a child, with a condition that means sitting in a car or a re-routed journey causes overwhelming psychological distress;
- a person, or person with a child, with a chronic health condition that makes sitting in a car very difficult;
- a professional carer whose ability to transport a care recipient in a car or directly assist them with their care needs is significantly impaired by an LTN;
- an organisation that solely transports people with access or disability needs

What is the charge for an exemption?
There is no charge for any exemption
The LTN restrictions are enforced by CCTV cameras. If motorists who don't have a valid exemption issued by the council are observed driving through camera-enforced LTN restrictions, they can be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). The penalty charge is £130, reduced to £65 if paid within 14 days from the date of issue of the PCN. If the charge is not paid on receipt of the Notice to Owner, it will increase to £195.
