  • Carshalton Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal & Management Plan Consu

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    Doing a quick scan of the document see some enoughing comments on segregated cycleway in high st, parking and a cycle networks.

    Unfortunately skip to the table at the end and it seems to be Medium to Long term objectives so real actions lacking. 

    see p53 Guideline SS4: The Northern Side of the High Street

    Any redevelopment should take the opportunity to create a
    segregated cycle path parallel to the High Street.

    p61
    7.29 Assisting a shift to more sustainable modes of transport would also be
    beneficial. Expanding the cycle network to create a segregated cycle way and
    increasing the pedestrian access and wayfinding for pedestrians to and from
    the High Street and Grove Park would also be welcome by-products, should a
    comprehensive redevelopment of the north side of the High Street take place.

    Guideline G9: Traffic and Transport
    The council will seek to improve the cycling network and pedestrian
    network throughout the Conservation Area as opportunities arise.

  • Western Road/Tate Road : Proposed improvements outside Homefield Preparatory Sch

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    The Sutton local area committee has agreed for officers to carry out improvements outside Homefield preparatory school in Western Road at its junction with Tate Road. Funding for the scheme has been secured from Transport for London (TfL) to address concerns raised by the school regarding unacceptable traffic speeds and difficulty in crossing the road outside the school.

    Highways officers have met with school representative to assess these issues and a preliminary improvement scheme has been drawn as shown on the attached plan which aims to address concerns regarding traffic speeds and pedestrian safety. The scheme is fully supported by the school. 

    The scheme proposes to change the priority at Western Road junction with Tate Road and introduce a raised table with a kerb build-out to assist pupils and parents to cross the road and to help reduce traffic speeds outside the school. The scheme also includes re-arranging and providing additional ‘school keep clear’ markings and installation of red/yellow pencil bollards.

    Whilst there were no pedestrian accidents recorded at the location in the last three years, the proposed measures will improve pedestrian safety and thus promote walking as a sustainable mode of travel.

    Dear Residents,

    Highways & Transport 24 Denmark Road

    CARSHALTON

       Proposed Windsor Avenue area consultation                                    surrey SM5 2JG

    The Cheam North and Worcester Park Local Committee has agreed to consult residents in the Windsor Avenue area on proposals to improve the environment for residents,

    pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport. The aim of the scheme is to encourage more people to walk, cycle or use public transport instead of using their car for local journeys.

    This year there is funding available from Transport for London to carry out a consultation with residents on a few measures that have already been highlighted as an issue by some residents and the local schools and to ask if there are any other measures residents would like us to consider to improve your neighbourhood.

    The proposals as shown on the attached plan includes -

    • Introduce a 20mph speed limit area to reduce vehicle speeds;
    • Introduce a zebra crossing in Molesey Drive outside Cheam Park Farm Infant school to provide an improved crossing point;
    • Introduce a no entry plug in Hamilton Avenue at the junction of London Road to reduce the cut through traffic using Hamilton Avenue in a southbound direction.

    Please respond to these preliminary proposals via our on-line consultation questionnaire which can be found at:

    https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/windsoravenue

    The on-line consultation will also ask if you have any other ideas to help improve the environment in your area that can be investigated and considered for future phases. Alternatively you can respond to this consultation by letter by sending your comments to the address shown. Replies need to be received by Friday 15th March 2019.

    You will be notified of the outcome of this consultation by another letter circulated in due course.

    Yours sincerely,

  • Sutton's Parking Consultation Stage 1

    From the council page (Note says this is South of Sutton, map not that clear so don't trust the area used here on cyclescape)

    With the fourth highest car ownership levels in London, and residents telling us that parking is a major and growing concern, our Parking Strategy aims to improve local parking and traffic situations across the borough.

    Our parking consultation will be rolled out in three phases, with each phase covering different locations across the borough. This Stage 1 Parking Consultation kicks off the second phase, where we'll be consulting with some residents in the Sutton South, Cheam & Belmont and Carshalton & Clockhouse Local Committee areas, as shown in the map below.

    Responses to this Parking Survey will help us understand about parking on your street. Whether you have parking problems or not, we’d like to hear from you as all feedback will be fed into parking and traffic management proposals being made for your street.
