  • Kentish Town Planning Framework

    Created by John Chamberlain // 3 threads

    Camden are consulting on a proposed planning framework for the northwest part of Kentish Town. This essentially covers the Murphy’s and Regis Road sites and is designed to set parameters for when/if the sites are redeveloped. The consultation is at goo.gl/6GaJEd and is open for individual responses until December 7th.

    We will be putting in a response from Camden Cyclists so please use one of the threads to add your comments by the end of November. We are particularly focussed on cycle and pedestrian permeability.

  • Kentish Town Planning Framework Consultation

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    Camden have started consultation on a planning framework for Kentish Town, with specific focus on the Regis Road and Murphy's sites. We'll need to respond, though a cynical view might be that it is a waste of time, given that a similar exercise for the Morrison's site in Chalk Farm had no perceptible effect on the final grant of planning permission. There is a very short consultation period.

  • Consultation - Chatsworth Road and Brooksby's Walk

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    Hackney Council are consulting on a series of proposed improvements to this area. The key features of this proposal are:
    - Raised pedestrian crossings (one new)
    - Widened pavements
    - Raised table entry treatments
    - Four new cycle contraflows on existing one-way streets.

    The council is also considering area-wide modal filtering, and canvassing views, subject to further consultation later.

  • Junction Road rat-run should be filtered cell

    Created by Space Pootler // 1 thread

    Junction Road is used as a rat-run by motorists between the A4 and Little Ealing Lane/Northfields Avenue. The problem is especially acute around Whitestile Road and Enfield Road (which is too narrow to accomodate this traffic).

    This traffic should rightly be sent onto the B roads surrounding the area, and the neighbourhood preserved for the access of its residents.

  • Groningenisation of Farncombe

    Created by Jenny Barnes // 2 threads

    If the level crossings either side of farncombe station were cycle/ ped only, with bollards in nightingale rd at the farncombe street end, and on frith hill, farncombe would be divided into 3 areas for cars, each of which would need to come out onto distributor roads. Further, if the New pond rd end of summers Rd as far as Brioadwater school were made one way southwest bound, any traffic trying to bypass the a3100/ Meadrow would be unable to.

  • Victoria Common

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    Cycling is banned on Victoria Common, but it represents the sort of environment in which people love to cycle. In the short term the paths should be made shared use, but longer term it would be sensible to create cycle paths through the park.

  • Maas Road - Chatham Road Link

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    If this path was made shared use, cyclists could use it to connect the official cycle route on Heath Road South with Northfield town centre via Chatham Road and Rochester Road (there is a toucan crossing that takes cyclists across Church Road).

  • Connect Lidl car park to housing

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 1 thread

    There should be a walking/cycling connection between Lidl and the housing behind it (Craigmillar Castle Avenue area).

    People living there are forced a long detour down to Niddrie Mains Rd then up to Lidl again. This encourages car use and discourages walking.

    Niddrie Mains Rd is terrible for cycling so this connection would also benefit people cycling from Greendykes or Inch (through the park).

  • Hawley Crescent vs Hawley Road

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    This issue is about our priorities for two way cycling in a pair of one way streets, the first north and the second south of the canal at Camden Lock:

    - Hawley Road runs one way eastbound between Chalk farm Road and Kentish Town road.

    - Hawley Crescent runs one way westbound from Kentish Town Road to Camden High Street

    Both of these roads are on our list of permeability issues but we are being asked to say which we would like to see tackled first.

  • The need for Regis Road - Grafton Road permeability

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    We have of course been campaigning for a cycle and pedestrian connection enabling more direct movement between Kentish Town Road and Grafton Road for years. At one time a semi-official route via Arctic Street was actually established, but the landowner eventually vetoed it for various reasons.

    How can we revive the campaign for this?

  • Restrictive Permeability between Bristol and South Gloucestshire on Wordsworth Road

    Created by Sam Saunders // 1 thread

    A northern stretch of Bristol's waymarked "Concorde Way" runs along a quiet residential street, Wordsworth Road. On the newest housing development as Bristol gives way to South Gloucestershire there is a barrier between the end of Wordsworth Road and the start of Eighth Avenue to prevent motor vehicles passing through. There is a raised curb, offset railings and large grey concrete bollards and only a narrow passage either side of one bollard for cyclists to ride through. Tricycles, cargo bikes, or trailers might be to be lifted over the raised curb. In dusk or darkness neither the bollards nor the curb are easy to see. There is a light on the traffic sign offering some help, but a less intimidating arrangements or reflective/high-visibility surfaces could be considered.

  • Healthy Hospitals need to consider Cyclists

    Created by James Avery // 1 thread

    The UHCW NHS Trust has applied for planning permission for a new access roads and multistorey car parks, under a plan drawn up by leading global engineering firm Arup.

    Please ask them to go back to the drawing board and come up with something better.

    The planning application details are here:

    http://planning.coventry.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet?PKID=744613

    Please state that you OBJECT to the current proposals as they don't give any consideration to encouraging more cycling (or walking).

    The trust are open to discussion via twitter (@NHSUHCW), but the council need to be asked to bring this matter to the committee (currently it is just classed as deferred, which means officers decide themselves).

  • Morville Street pedestrian area

    Created by Chris Lowe // 0 threads

    This looks like it was designed originally as a cycle path - because of the way the kerbs are placed.

    Would be a good cut-through for bicycles. Needs re-assigning as shared use, plus a dropped kerb at the Gilby Road junction.

  • Parker Street pedestrian area

    Created by Chris Lowe // 0 threads

    This is signed 'no cycling'. It is a nice route to access the shops on the junction of Hagley Road / Monument Road, as it has very low traffic.

    Needs to have cycling permitted, plus dropped kerbs at the north end for access.
