I've signed too. It would be good to keep this at the top of the SE1 page and I hope that James feels that it's worth publicising further as a genuine quality of life issue that matters to locals. A non local spoiling our day for the sake of making money and without giving a toss is just not on. It's tacky, anti social and intrusive.
Signed... Go Anood! I am no Lib Dem but I appreciate all the work, thank you! I'd be a hypocript to criticise tomfoolery, but the activity causes congestion, noise, and nothing positive for anyone but the business owner and the Draft House.
If a diversity of routes were offered, or any variety I'd be more sympathetic, but the same old **** is being churned out to maximise someone's profit.
Just a quick note to say that the company have (again) agreed to move the start and stopping point which should help. The council and police are meeting with the company in the next few weeks so if they are still stopping or starting near your home then please do let me know. I'm also still pushing on their hours of operation as Sunday evening at 10pm really isn't acceptable.
Please do email me at [email protected] with any specific problems they cause so that I can continue to act on the side of local residents.
Thanks for taking up this problem and fighting our corner. They started parking at the end of Boss Street a couple of weeks back and also in the red route parking bays on Tooley Street, opposite Boss Street. I am going to start taking photos with dates and times. I hope you don't mind me forwarding them to you, if they are of any use?
I'm still keeping an eye on this issue and the council has met with the company and agreed further conditions which are below. They are due to meet again next week so please do let me know if your have had any recent problems with them.
· The withdrawal of the longest route around Tower Bridge,
· Reduced the volume of alcohol advertised on the routes from two and a half pints to one pint,
· Removed the Mudlark from their website,
· Changed the drop off and pick up points. They have also changed their H&S arrangements for getting the vehicles to and from the drop of points,
· Brought the last booking times forward to 20:00 weekdays and 18.30 weekends.
