At the Council: May & June 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 links back to March/ April and January/ February 2019 posts, if useful.

June 2019

City of London

Croydon

Hammersmith & Fulham

Kensington & Chelsea

Kingston Council

  • Kingston Town Ctte 4 June: has papers on the Gloucester Road / Cambridge Road junction proposal (recommendation to drop), and response to a petition from Manorgate residents asking for the street to be made access only.
  • Enviro & Transport Ctte 25 June: focuses on air quality, with local reports and a hug-a-polar-bear motion from the Conservatives.

London Assembly

Merton

Mitcham Common Conservators (Merton)

  • Quarterly Conservators Meeting 12 June: has the minutes of the previous meeting in March with two items of note:
    • Ongoing problem with drivers parking vehicles on Croydon Road’s shared-use pavement outside the Ravensbury public house – Merton Council is aware and (thus far) failed to stop it;
    • Cryptic note about the proposed signalised crossing in the middle of the common at the junction of Croydon Road, Beddington Lane and Windmill Road. Merton Council proposes to join the shared-use pavements with pedestrian-only crossings.  The minutes note “Merton [Council] had agreed in principle but to date a licence agreement had not been produced”.  Merton Council’s LIP3 submission to TfL described this as a “pedestrian crossing” i.e. people cycling will be expected to dismount when attempting to cross between the sections of shared-use pavement.

Richmond

Royal Parks

Sutton

Transport for London – Consultations

Transport for London – Freedom of Information Requests

Wandsworth

Westminster

  • City Mngt Ctte 12 June: the transport report notes that 13 of the 19 bike hangers which went to consultation earlier this year will be installed, and other sites (will? may?) found for remaining six.  Also, quietway routes continue to be under review as part of “rationalising the forward capital programme”.  This phrasing is odd, as cycling quietway schemes are funded by TfL.
