Progress Report

  • Marcus gave updates along with slides
  • Explained that after getting advice of Simon Munk Rosehill roundabout was not something we’d get TFL funding for
  • The action to write to Councillor Sunita Gordon about the council’s website and tweeter feed re. Safer, Active, Greener streets post is less important now
    • it’s too late to spread the Widen My Path message now bidding done
  • Rather than looking at the maps in the slides we discussed the funding breakdown seen on page 35 of the Agenda reports pack pdf icon PDF 9 MB (see the Agenda page for the Strategy and Resources Committee meeting next Monday 6th July.)
    • It would seem that the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods schemes the best value for money at using £224k for 3 schemes out of the total £3.7m
    • John K mentioned the language used in the document is far clearer than what we’ve seen in previous LIP documents
  • The idea of another Q & A session with Cllr Manuel Abellan will be doing a Q&A session from 3-4pm Tuesday 7th July was well received
    • again can be used to collate a list of questions
    • John K mentioned that Church Road would be a waste of money.
    • Colin agreed that parking is the real issue there and Demesne Rd needs a filter
    • Chas said the council should talk to and learn from other boroughs
    • Colin mentioned why would we have remove parking from West St when it already has double yellow lines?
    • Marcus asked what the intervention be on Park Lane? General agreement that the mention of that intervention seemed to be over optomistic in benefits
    • Gary mentioned we should be ready for cars driving on pavements, Chas agreed saying that is proof that a modal filter is needed. Marcus suggested we put filters adjacent to lamp posts.


  • Finally a different image on that slide!

Next Meeting

  • Will ask Cllr Manuel Abellan to do another Q&A session from 3-4pm
