Thank you for your support in the campaign to implement Option 1. We now await the report of the consultation responses which will be written by the independent market research company. We expect that the report will be completed sometime in May, after the Mayrol elections. The Council will then take a decision on the scheme taking into account the consultation responses.
We hope of course that a majority of consultation responses would have been in favour of Option 1. Other ideas to enhance the scheme have been suggested during the process, so we look forward to see how these may be incorporated into the final decision.
In the meantime, we encourage you to consider who of the Mayrol candidates have the best transport policies to improve the city. Please join LCC's Sign for Cycling campaign, and Londoners on Bikes also keep a keen eye on how the candidates are doing. Like in the London Fields scheme, what is good for cycling is also good for pedestrians and for the environment ie for everyone.
Whatever is decided for the scheme we look forward to working with our neighbours, including those who we have disagreed with, to make the area as pleasant and safe for the largest number of residents and visitors.
We are a group of local residents who walk, drive and cycle. We support Hackney's traffic and pollution reduction plans. We firmly believe this scheme will help make London Fields a better place to live. We look forward to working with all of our neighbours and the council to make this scheme a success.
