At the Council: January 2019

An aide memoire of items I’ve noted from the boroughs where I work, rest and play, in case it is of use to others.

Here’s a link back to the 2018 posts, if useful.

Croydon Council

  • Full council on 28 Jan: Transport update notes that 8 more schools have applied for “schools streets” treatment, following trials around 3 schools last year. Council aims to implement these by start of the 2019/20 school year.
  • Traffic Mngt Ctte, 5 Feb: proposals to make the experimental pedestrianised area of the High Street permanent – “closed to motorised vehicles”.

City of London

Kensington & Chelsea

  • Public Realm ctte 30 Jan – picking out three things from the transport report:
    • Kensington High Street to Shepherds Bush quietway to go ahead, with aggregate 81% support;
    • Just 30 responses to the consultation on the draft LIP3 submission, with a worrying comment that TfL officers are “happy to recommend” as this infers that TfL is happy with RBKC’s stated hostility to improved cycle routes such as an east-west route. More positively, there were 900 responses to a 20 mph zone consultation, although rollout across the borough is very patchy; and
    • Safety improvements are needed in Portabello Road (with its market) and Exhibition Road (failed 20mph shared-space design). Consultations/engagement later this year.
