Re: Bedford Hill redevelopment consultation

I have made this FOI request as a result of what some might view as a glaring omission from the pre-consultation engagement process.

Re: Traffic lights Clapham Common Westside

Thanks for the extra info Wandsworth Council. Aside from the timings of traffic lights, can you confirm that councillors voted to make it harder for residents to petition with regards to road safety improvements (on council managed roads) in the autumn as per the link in the thread above? With the M...

Re: 20 Mph Speed Trap in Nappy Valley Side Street - With Ulterior Motive???

When I did this FOI request in November, the highway engineers at the council are none the wiser about the speeding on local streets or the data collected from these speedwatch events: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/evidence_base_for_community_spee#incoming-1074736 I put in a Mayoral questio...

Re: abusive relationship?

So sorry to hear about your situation. It's grim going through it, but the good news is that there is another side. Others have already signposted services where you should be able to access support. I found www.flyingmonkeysdenied.com a really useful resource in better understanding my toxic ex, an...

Re: Social life after divorce?

Echoing what others have said, focus on you. I'm on the other side of a divorce, sadly with my daughter the other side of the planet. I've found Tooting Lido to be an amazing place with wonderful people. I started swimming there last summer and got through the first winter last year. Still going eve...

Re: Reassure EU citizens

Pie I really hope that you are right. I think rhetoric like that is really unhelpful, as you say it must be really disconcerting for EU citizens currently living here. If Theresa May becomes PM, and then wants to follow through, what then? I really hope that we don't reach that point. It's all too h...

Reassure EU citizens

Worrying times with how both the Conservative party and Labour are choosing to interpret the outcome of the referendum.

Re: Nasty crash Balham High Road

See more details here: http://www.wandsworthlibdems.org.uk/failing_to_deliver_on_balham_boulevard Unfortunately collisions on local streets are definitely not isolate...

Re: Zebra crossing accident

So sorry to hear about this and really glad for you and your family that the outcome wasn't worse. I have been campaigning on road safety issues for years now. Incidents like this are sadly all too frequent. Instead of the authorities looking to implement street designs that reduces the risk to mana...

Re: Where to put my bike, St John's Road

I petitioned the council over 2 years ago to give the bikehangars that Lambeth are using a go. Still haven't got around to running the proposed trial to see what residents think when they are on the street. With the current political makeup of the council I guess I shouldn't be surprised. My party i...

Re: Queenstown Road petition now over 300 signatures!

I agree that it isn't an easy stretch of road to improve. But the detailed design work should be done by highway professionals, hence the petition ask. I believe that all our roads should be safe enough, so that if parents wish to cycle to school with their children it is an option they can easily t...
