On 28 April, Councillor Manuel Abellan, the Chair of the Environment & Neighbourhood Committee, told us they are looking into options for what can be done and asked for suitable locations and advice in response to emails they had received from LCC members.
We are working on a list of suggestions and need your input.
Help us prioritise widened pavements and emergency cycle lanes
You may have more than one suggestion, please re-submit this form for each street you think can:
1) benefit key workers cycling or walking to work.
2) provide space for social distancing while exercising.
3) support people while doing their essential shopping.
To see suggestions so far see Streets for Social Distancing Map
Write to the council
- Use Cycling UK : Ask your council for cycle space during lockdown campaign.
- Use Living Streets : MAKE SPACE FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING campaign.
These email forms above already exist and are getting the attention of councillors. Please use either or both to show how many of us are serious about widened pavements and emergency cycle lanes in this time of need.
Spread the word
Just as Southwark and others are asking, don’t keep this to yourself!
To get the change we need, we must spread the word. If you’re on social media, share stories about your experiences on the streets at this time. If you’re on twitter, tag us @cyclinginsutton
Talk to your friends and neighbours about your concerns.
If you’re involved in a community or neighbourhood group, get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and so that we can work together on this issue.
And again, if you haven’t already
