A public consultation has been launched (open until 30 November 2022) asking a series of questions relating to how people feel they are impacted by temporary traffic measures aimed at improving spaces for people to walk and cycle in the City, and if they support the measures being made permanent.
It also provides information to people on the changes to traffic, parking, waiting and loading as well as a visual picture of what the street could look like if a decision was made to make the measures permanent. The results of the public consultation and traffic data from the experiment will be analysed, and a used to inform a decision in January if the measures should be made permanent.
You can vist the City’s website which provides additional information and directly links to the Pedestrian Priority Street consultation, www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/services/streets/pedestrian-priority-programme.
