  • Barnet Air Quality Action Plan 2017-2021

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Barnet Council say:

    Overview

    ...So that we can continue to improve air quality across the borough we have produced a new draft Air Quality Action Plan 2017- 2022 (AQAP) which is also part of the council’s duty to contribute to London Local Air Quality Management.

    This new plan builds on our previous plan and outlines the steps the council will take from 2017 to 2022 to improve air quality across the borough. The plan gives details on how the council will:

    - continue to meet its statutory obligations for managing air quality;
    - work across many council services and with partners to minimise emissions from transport, existing buildings, and new developments, including Brent Cross and other regeneration projects within the borough;
    - continue to raise awareness of air quality issues to the public and encourage residents to do their bit to reduce levels of pollution and raise awareness of the importance to reduce their exposure to poor air quality; and
    - work in partnership with others to press for more action to be taken at all levels of government.

    We are now consulting with residents on the contents and the actions we have identified in our draft Air Quality Action Plan 2017 - 2022. To find out more about our proposals please take the time to read the full Air Quality Action Plan 2017 - 2021 here.

    Why We Are Consulting

    Our draft Air Quality Action Plan will ensure we can continue to monitor how we are doing and sets out clear targets on what we want to achieve by 2022.

    Before we finalise the draft plan we want to give residents the opportunity to have their say to ensure the plan is appropriate for all our local communities.

    The consultation is open to everyone and asks your views on the overall document, its actions and how we can all support this work.

  • Draft Golders Green Station Planning Brief

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Barnet council says:

    Overview

    The council is consulting on the draft Golders Green Station Planning Brief which will help to shape any future development of Golders Green Bus Station and Underground Station, together with the adjoining depot, sidings and immediately surrounding public highways.

    We consider the site of Golders Green Station as an opportunity to provide a high quality mixed use development that sensitively integrates an improved public transport interchange within the distinctive historic environment of Golders Green.

    The Draft Planning Brief has been produced to ensure that any future development improves transport connectivity and land use integration, respects and enhances Golders Green, creates high quality public realm and supports the success and vibrancy of the town centre.

    The Draft Golders Green Station Planning Brief;

    Identifies development opportunities and constraints;
    Provides guidance;
    Sets out key planning policy considerations to establish a clear set of development parameters; and
    Outlines the council’s preferred approach to any future development.

    Why We Are Consulting

    We are consulting on the draft plans to redevelop the site and we want to hear the views of local people on the proposed developments. It is important that residents and other interested parties have their say in planning policy.

    Planning Briefs form a material consideration in the consideration of planning applications.

    The closing date for us to receive comments and feedback is Thursday 11 May 2017.

    The results will then be reported to the Council’s Policy and Resources Committee so that they can be taken into account when the final version of the Planning Brief is being considered for adoption.

  • Church Lane Proposed Safety improvements

    Created by kateb // 1 thread

    Brent council says:

    Each year the Council identifies locations in Brent with the highest number of Personal Injury Accidents (PIAs) and considers road safety measures to help reduce the number of collisions. Over the last three years there have been 25 personal injury accidents in this section of Church Lane with some involving pedestrians, pedal cyclists and powered two wheelers (motorcycles and mopeds).

    We are therefore proposing to introduce measures along this section of Church Lane to improve safety and accessibility for all road users.

  • Finchley Central town centre strategy

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Barnet council says:

    The Finchley Central Town Centre Project commenced in mid-2016 to generate a town centre plan for Finchley Central. This project aims to deliver a comprehensive strategy for the Town Centre to identify and enable future investment in the town centre.

    In order to develop this strategy, we have been involving residents, councillors and businesses in a number of community engagement exercises and consultations including but not limited to ‘Shaping Finchley’s Future’ in November 2016, ‘Hello, is it Finchley you are looking for’ a highsteet consultation base set up outside Tesco with local residents on the 17th and 21st September 2016 and a business survey conducted the Summer of 2016.

    At the Shaping Finchley’s Future event, a number of residents indicated that they would like to see this initial draft strategy in order to provide more in depth feedback. In response to this, we have made the draft strategy available here and are seeking feedback.

    The Town Centre Plan aims to:
    - establish civic centres and public spaces at the core of the high street.
    - support vital employment clusters as a key employment hub for the borough.
    - identify development growth opportunities within the Town Centre.
    - make the most of heritage assets by proposing high quality public realm improvements and reaffirming the historical identity of the area.
    - improve gateways through developments, focusing on the two station gateway points into Finchley Central.
    - ease pedestrian and cycle movement with long-term wider transport infrastructure improvements.
    - create an inclusive high street that serves both local residents and worker throughout the week whilst supporting the evenining and weekend economy.
    - establish a unique identity for the town centre which celebrates its unique charactre and asssets both historically and in present time.

    The strategy has been developed in the context of the council’s Entrepreneurial Barnet Strategy and the place-based commissioning approach, which focusses on joining up council services in order to provide a better overall experience for residents and businesses.

  • A406 North Circular: Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and Golders Green Road/Brent Street junction

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Overview
    We are proposing improvements for pedestrians and cyclists along the A406 North Circular from Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. The proposals include converting some sections of footway to shared use for pedestrian and cyclists, and a new staggered shared pedestrian/cycle ‘toucan’ crossing on the westbound carriageway, adjacent to the Woodlands retaining wall.
    The proposals for the crossing are in response to safety concerns that pedestrians are crossing the A406 independently and using the central reservation as a waiting area, rather than using the pedestrian footbridge located at the junction. The existing pedestrian footbridge will remain as a secondary crossing point for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists to use.

    We propose the following:
    - A new ‘toucan’ crossing for pedestrians and cyclists on the A406 North Circular westbound carriageway, adjacent to A406 Woodlands retaining wall. This would involve widening the central reservation by 4 metres to accommodate the crossing, central waiting area and guard railing, which in turn would require minor widening of the carriageway into the footway on the north west corner of the junction
    - New shared use footway for pedestrian and cyclists at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. This would involve resurfacing the footways on three of the four corners of the junction to ensure surface consistency; we would also resurface the footway north of the junction to link to our current footway works at the Woodlands retaining wall. Signage and tactile paving would be used
    - Improve the shared use footway facilities from south of Bridge Lane to link to existing shared use facilities north of Courtleigh Gardens. This would involve resurfacing the footway to ensure surface consistency and adding new signage
    - Build a retaining wall to enable widening of the footway into the grass verge embankment just south of Bridge Lane
    - Widen the existing unsignalised crossing located across Golders Green Road to 3.2 metres to enhance facilities for the north/south movement
    - Introduce Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists on the Brent Street and Golders Green Road approaches

  • Junction Road - Cycle Improvement Scheme

    Created by David Lincoln // 1 thread

    NB: For drawing of the scheme see the PDF posted here: http://www.cyclescape.org/threads/2377#message_30253

    Dear Resident/Trader,

    Islington Council have proposals to make improvements for cyclists on Junction Road.

    The main improvements for cyclists are mandatory northbound and southbound cycle lanes between Tufnell Park Road and Bredgar Road.

    Traffic islands near the junction of Dartmouth Park Hill and Cathcart Hill will be removed to create extra carriageway space for the cycle lanes. The existing bus stops on Junction Road will be unchanged.

    Some existing parking bays will need to be relocated or removed to accommodate the new cycle lanes. There will be a net loss of 8 parking bays on Junction Road. However the council will further investigate ways to mitigate parking loss during detailed design.

    Parking bays No. 81 - 89 Junction Road and No. 84 Junction Road and No. 1 Linden Walk will be removed.

    There will be some parking bays which are partially on footway and partially on the carriageway which are located:

    • outside No. 132D – 140D Junction Road.
    • outside No. 114 - 122 Junction Road.
    • outside No. 127 – 145 Junction Road.
    • outside No. 104 – 112 Junction Road.
    • outside No. 151 - 165 Junction Road.

    The proposals include parking bays being relocated on to the footway outside Silver Court, Junction Road with an increase of one parking space and outside Ash Court, Junction Rd with an increase of one parking space.

    Some existing parking bays will need to be relocated or removed to accommodate the new cycle lanes. There will be a net loss of 8 parking bays on Junction Road. Three new residents parking bays will be created on Wyndham Crescent to mitigate against the loss of parking spaces on Junction Road.

    To increase the number of short-term parking bays there are proposals to convert existing resident parking bays to shared-use (residents and pay and display) bays in Brookside Road. The council is proposing to add three additional resident parking bays on Wyndham Crescent, two near the junction of Dartmouth Park Hill and the third near Bishops Close. (See Figure 2).

    Figure 1 below is a plan showing the proposals on Junction Road.

    For further information please contact Min Yee Cheung on 020 7527 2000.

    It would be helpful if you could let us know if you are in support of these proposals and could submit comments regarding these proposals. Please can you submitted your comments/view regarding theses proposals by 11th February 2016.

    If you wish to discuss this matter further, please contact Min Yee cheung on 020 7527 2000. You can also write to us at:

  • Seven Sisters Road Consultation

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    The Woodberry Down Development Team (Hackney Council, Berkeley Homes and supported by Transport for London) are consulting on "changes to Seven Sisters Road, from Green Lanes to the west and Amhurst Park to the east, as part of the on‑going regeneration of the area".

    They have offered six 'ideas':
    1) Reduce road to two lanes in either direction (one general traffic lane, one bus lane)
    2) Reduce road to two lanes (one general traffic, one bus) in either direction, but widen to three lanes at junctions
    3) Increase the number of pedestrian crossings
    4a) Add a 'pedestrian island slip' between the two carriageways
    4b) Add a wide 'pedestrian island slip' with planting and trees
    5) Segregated cycle lanes
    6) Widen bus lanes

    Different combinations are possible. For example, 1 (change traffic lanes) would be necessary for 4 (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes). 1 (change traffic lanes), 4a (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes) would work together, whereas 2 (change traffic lanes but keep three lanes at junction) would make pavement widening and segregated cycle lanes impossible.

    Please respond by Sunday 15th February so that Natalie and Harry can draft a response representing Hackney Cycling Campaign's position.

  • TfL Consultation: Proposed improvements at the Nag’s Head on A1 Holloway Road

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/streets/a1-holloway-road

    A1 Holloway Road - Nag's Head
    Overview
    Transport for London (TfL) has developed proposals to improve road safety for pedestrians and cyclists on the A1 Holloway Road in the Nag’s Head area.

    The main objective of the scheme is to put in place a pedestrian crossing on the A1 Holloway Road, enabling people to cross the road easily and safely and to improve access to businesses on the south-western side of the road.

    In summary, the proposed measures include the following:

    New signalised pedestrian crossing outside the Nag’s Head Shopping Centre

    New cycle lanes in both directions

    Advanced stop lines added to the junctions of Holloway Road and Tollington Road/Camden Road and Seven Sisters/Parkhurst Road

    Resurfacing of the footway and carriageway
    In order to make space for these improvements some other changes are required. These include

    Relocation of the northbound bus stop (Stop L) approximately 50m north of its existing location

    Changes to parking and loading provision, with and overall slight reduction in parking and loading availability

    Loss of one small tree on the median island where the crossing will be located. There may also be the potential loss of one other small tree and two relatively mature trees due to kerb cutbacks required in order to relocate the bus stop.

    Relocation of several items of street furniture including the removal of a redundant telephone box
    The proposals are shown on the attached map. In addition to these proposals, an informal pedestrian crossing with a central refuge island is planned for the A1 Holloway Road adjacent to Jackson Road.

    All of the measures that we propose are subject to change as a result of this consultation. Given no unforeseen issues, it is anticipated that the scheme will be implemented in Spring 2014.

    Please gives us your views by completing our online consultation form below by Monday 6 January 2014.
