Residents living on Elmbourne Road and the surrounding roads will have received (or shortly receive) the below letter in the post in the coming days on a Trial Low Traffic Neighbourhood which will commence on 1 July for 6 months.
As ward councillors we were not consulted on these proposals and have not had any input into shaping them. There are clarifications we’re asking from council officers on this issue at the moment, including asking for information about the modelling, and in particular any potential traffic increase on nearby Ritherdon Road, Elmfield Road, Tooting Bec Road, Bedford Hill and Trinity Crescent.
The proposals are for road closures (except to bikes) at:
- Elmbourne Road junction Tooting Bec Road
- Elmbourne Road junction Manville Road
- Dr Johnson Avenue junction Hillbury Road
If you live in the affected area, or nearby we’d love to hear from you. Please submit your comments to the consultation when it opens on 13 July at: https://haveyoursay.citizenspace.com/wandsworthecs/elmbourne
as well as sharing your thoughts with us so that we can best represent our ward residents and businesses on this important issue as we don’t receive comments submitted on the consultation site.
If you can get in touch with us at the following addresses, including your thoughts and comments as well as your address:
Councillor Fleur Anderson: firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillor Hector Denfield: email@example.com
Councillor Clare Fraser: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’d usually invite people to come and talk to us at one of our councillor surgeries about this. Given the current restrictions we’re not holding our surgeries however we’d be more than happy to discuss this with you over the phone, or on a Zoom call. Please let us know if you’d like to arrange this.
Fleur, Hector & Clare
