  • Coppermill area proposals

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Council says:

    In 2018, Waltham Forest Council was successful in securing initial funding from Transport for London (TfL) to develop a Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme in the Coppermill Area.

    For the past 12 months we have been engaging with residents, businesses and local accessibility groups and key stakeholders to find out what they would like to see improved. Based on this feedback we have created a set of proposals for the area. We are now starting a public consultation on our proposals and want everyone who lives or works in the area to have their say on the proposals to help shape the final improvements.

  • Lewisham & Lee Green Healthy Neighbourhood (Streetbuilder first stage consult)

    Created by Alex Raha // 1 thread

    Lewisham & Lee Green is changing

    A key target of both the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Lewisham’s Transport Strategy is for 80% of all journeys in London to be made by sustainable means of transport (walking, cycling and public transport) by 2041. To achieve this, we have to create street environments where traffic is reduced, and where vulnerable road users, including children and the elderly, feel more comfortable making journeys on foot or by bike.

    What are the issues that you would like us to address?

    How would you like to change Lewisham & Lee Green to make the area healthier, greener and more pleasant to live in?

    The Healthy Neighbourhoods Programme will help make Lewisham’s diverse communities greener, healthier and more attractive places to live, work, play and do business. By restricting the through traffic that uses residential streets to avoid main roads, we will reduce congestion in your neighbourhood, improve air quality and make the local area more pleasant to walk and cycle through.

    During the first stage of the programme, local residents will be able to access local traffic data, share their views on traffic issues and help identify schemes to address them, on this website and at a series of public events and workshops.

    During the second stage, proposed traffic management measures will be trialled for 6-18 months, so that we can monitor their impact, gather local opinion and assess whether to make any changes permanent

  • Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood

    Created by Alex Raha // 1 thread

    The Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood (DPLN) project is focused on the area surrounding Folkestone Gardens, Deptford Park and Fordham Park and is funded through the Mayor of London's "Liveable Neighbourhood" programme along with borough and external match-funding. The programme is in line with the Mayor's draft Transport Strategy, which sets out a long-term ambition to transform the Capital's transport network and deliver a fairer, greener, healthier and more prosperous city for all Londoners.

    Why?

    Deptford’s population is growing fast but currently suffers from significant deprivation, communities cut-off by dangerous roads and railway lines, poor air quality, and childhood obesity. We want to tackle these issues by creating safe places to walk and cycle, reducing the amount of cars on the roads as well as creating attractive places to sit and relax.

    What has happened already?

    The council worked with park user group Deptford Folk, cycling and walking charity Sustrans, and other local groups on a community street design project for Rolt Street and Folkestone Gardens in Spring 2017. The project culminated in a community led design for the area which reimagines Rolt Street as an extension of Folkestone Gardens providing extra space to sit and relax as well as creating a safer crossing to Woodpecker Walk. You can read more about the Rolt Street community street design project along with a video and proposals by visiting our Reimagining Rolt Street page. These proposals were then incorporated into the wider Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhoods project and we will be developing these proposals further as part of the feasibility study.

  • Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood - First engagement (commonplace)

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood aims to realise the great potential Brixton has for walking and cycling while improving air quality, reducing congestion, supporting local businesses and providing for the growth in jobs and homes planned for the area.

    We successfully bid for funding from Transport for London (TfL) to deliver these aims. At the heart of our proposal is transforming Atlantic Road in the town centre, but the ambition goes well beyond this, with proposals to create ‘low traffic neighbourhoods’ in adjacent residential areas that link communities together and ‘healthy routes’ for walking and cycling. Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood is the cornerstone of Lambeth’s Draft Transport Strategy, which seeks to allow people to live healthier lives and create better places for everyone to enjoy.

    This is the first stage of consultation, collecting resident and user comments about the area.

  • Greenwich Liveable Neighbourhood

    Created by Neil Robertson // 1 thread

    Having won Liveable Neighbourhood Funding for Greenwich Town Centre, the Royal Borough of Greenwich are starting to create more detailed plans.

    Following the pre-Consultation which resulted in a high percentage of responses for the reduction in motor traffic, the council are planning to design the changes in liaison with local groups.

    The expectation is that the gyratory will be removed in favour of a simple 2 way road East to West.

    The concept sketches suggest the other half of the gyratory to be a footpath and cycle route to be ready for when the CS4 extension is planned. The road section would have 3 sets of traffic lights controlling the three main junctions.

    Access to and from Greenwich Park will be high priority, especially as it seems to be confirmed as part of Quietway 1 (daytime only).

  • Northfield Avenue Crossing

    Created by Martin Gorst // 1 thread

    A new Toucan crossing to link Dean Gardens with Mattock Lane. This will replace the present Toucan crossing. This route is part of the London Cycle Network Route 41. The plan was included in the West Ealing Liveable Neighbourhood Bid, but the council intends to install this as a separate project - probably in the financial year ending March 2019.

  • Brent Cross South developement

    Created by Charles Harvey // 1 thread

    Brian Atkinson and I attended a meeting on BXS last night. Ben Tansley from Brent LCC was also present representing local residents on the Brent side of the development. I have drafted an email (see below) to Julia Finlayson of Argent. She is responsible for the road layout. I would be grateful for any comments you would like to make on this draft before I send it.

    Dear Julia

    It was nice to meet you yesterday. Thank you for your presentation at the meeting at Whitefield School. I welcome the facilities for cycling within the development but I am concerned with both the eastern and western access to the new High Street and Claremont Park Road. I learned after the meeting that the road bridge just south of the new station is not due to be completed until 2030. As discussed last night, this will mean that the eastern access to the new development will be via a subway where cycling is currently prohibited (though the ban is largely ignored) and until 2030 the western access will be via a bridge that involves lifts and where one will be expected to walk one's bike across a pedestrian bridge within the station. No-one would design facilities for cars you couldn't drive over. Why should there be cycle routes you cannot ride on?

    I understand you will be meeting Barnet's Highways officers shortly. I would be grateful if you would make the above points to them. A short term solution at the eastern end would be to remove the no cycling signs at the subway connecting the footpath behind Tescos from Marble Drive to the other side of the Hendon Way and build a short section of cycle path on the pavement from the eastern side of the subway to connect it with Woodville Gardens. I would suggest a white line through the subway demarcating pedestrian and cycle sides of the path and/or "Cyclists give way to pedestrians" signs.

    On another matter, Ben Tansley suggested at the meeting that the whole area would be suitable for a 20 mph zone. Barnet Cyclist would endorse this view and I'd appreciate if you would raise this at your meeting with Barnet Highways. You mentioned that you would be trying to reduce speeds with suitable designs and we would welcome this.

    Regards

    Charles Harvey
