The City Council is about to install a gate on Thursday 26th November 2015 which will basically block the access to the Beehive Centre, forcing cyclists onto a narrow pavement gap.
The city council has written to residents living nearby to inform them of this; there has been no consultation or, as far as I'm aware, consultation with any organisation.
The reason is to stop commuter parking on what is termed a 'private road' round the back of the houses; I am not convinced it is a private road. However, this is particularly galling since the same Councillor Blencowe mentioned in the letter also wrote to residents to state that they are not proceeding with a residents' parking zone, i.e. that commuter parking will continue to be permitted.
