Tomorrow evening councillors are holding the St Peter's Ward Partnership meeting. Everyone living locally is welcome and People Friendly Streets are on the agenda. The session is from 6pm - 8pm and will run on Zoom.
Share you photos!
The best way to evidence the positive changes we see on our streets is to take photos. Please feel free to send to ChrisKenyon@gmail.com or to include @StPeters2020 on Twitter.
Hare are just some of the images that have stood out over the last couple of months:
A very noticeable increase in mobility scooter and wheelchair users taking advantage of roads (which are smoother and easier to use than most pavements in the ward).
Other benefits have been a change in how we see younger residents use the streets:
And for schools that have been struggling with space during drop off - People Friendly streets have effectively created an additional school street and transformed a dangerous crossing into a drop off point
Delivery services are increasingly using bikes instead of mopeds in the area
and in addition to the quieter streets there is universal feedback that the air is cleaner with less motor traffic.
Finally.... and despite all the stories on NextDoor - it appears Cabs can still get into the ward - we don't know how they do it.
Thank you for ongoing support - please share photos and watch out for our survey on People Friendly Streets coming out shortly.
