Thank you to everyone who attended last night; it was great to meet you. We hope the event gave you some food for thought and that the speakers showed what can be done to make our streets better spaces. As Claudia Draper said in her talk, streets are the largest public spaces we have; let’s work together to make them the nicest spaces they can possibly be.
Valid concerns were raised, as always, and we hope that at least some of them were answered. We’ll try to put up a more complete report of the discussion over the coming days. Some very practical ideas and improvements were shared by the audience. We are really keen to take those ideas, throw in some of our own, and to include them all in our own consultation responses.
So, if you’re keen to see improvements on Richmond Road and Queensbridge Road, we are completely behind you. Let’s set up a meeting, agree what we want to ask for on those streets to improve them, and present a united front to the Council. Let’s just get it done!
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.
