Thank you so much for doing this. I am the owner of Fashion-Conscience store on the corner of Grove vale and Melbourne Grove and just posted about how locals can support our petition and the various reason why they should.
There are is so much more to this than whether our customers come via cars or not, which I can confirm they do, especially elderly or ill who are not able to walk, yes who come from further afield, people who currently are still fearful of using public transport with Covid and the obvious fact that if people drive past you they think of you when booking an appointment.
There is not only the businesses livelihoods at stake but the very high risk of increased traffic and thus pollution on ED Grove and Grove Vale as all cars will need to use these routes, the social injustice of why people living on the closed roads should be allowed to push pollution onto other residents and business and schools, and the manner in which Southwark has been able to do this with NO consulation or any data gathering or monitoring under a very dubious Covid social distancing premise.
I urge you to support our petition if you can. There are peoples livelihoods and health at stake.
