That's a lot of extra traffic for the roads around the impacted area!
The council is approaching this like they approach most things: we know best and we will do what we want because you can't do a thing about it!
This project appears to be following their usual modus operandi for such schemes: mislead and heavily spin information, consultations rigged to get the answers they want; engage with a few cherry-picked residents and use their voices supporting their plans to drown out anyone who opposes them, roll-out whatever you want as no-one will ever hold you accountable.
See how Cllr McAsh has mobilised to "engage" with people living on Melbourne Grove, it'll all be part of the plan to gather as much data as they can to make a stronger case - they even have leaflets printed.
We all know how those discussions go:
Cllr: "Did you know someone (not us of course we wouldn't do this to you) is closing a huge part of the village to traffic and we think your road will be used as the cut through"
Resident: "Wow, really, that's bad"
Cllr: "Would you like me to try to get your road closed to through traffic?"
Resident: "Errr, yes please"
Cllr: "Great, bye"
Resident: "Hang on, who is doing this - the council, but that's you"
Cllr: "Bye, got to dash. Healthy Streets and all that....power to the people comrade!!!"
Or something along those lines anyway
I do hope Cllr McAsh responds to the other thread on the subject as I will be intrigued as to what his position on it is as it will be his constituents who bear the brunt of the increases in traffic and, unlike the CPZ, I am not sure he can rely on local resident support for such a hair-brained scheme.
