I've received a consultation questionnaire about the scheme.
However, I have MAJOR misgivings about the quality of the consultation given:
(a) Henley Drive is labelled on the map as Penrose Street! Penrose Street runs off Walworth Road in SE17.
(b) The language used in the consultation questionnaire is so emotive/leading, it is going to give Southwark the answers it wants.
With apologies, because I don't have the questionnaire with me but I will try to post some examples of what I mean tomorrow. I also plan to contact Mouchel Parkman to raise my misgivings.
If is anything like the consultation questionnaire for the Salisbury Row scheme, then Southwark's aim appears to be to cut down and calm road traffic to benefit pedestrians and improve/promote the use of green spaces. However (in the Salisbury Row scheme at least), they fail to take account of the need for residential vehicular access and egress, and they cut down on residential parking.
The Salisbury Row scheme questionnaire also has similar language, and inconsistencies - like a 'proposed' 20 mph zone, where the area is mostly or completely 20 mph already.
Have you checked the earlier consultation documents on the Southwark website? You may find more inconsistencies. Salisbury Row scheme proposes Mason Street one-way southbound, but in the earlier documents the only suggestion of a change to traffic movement is to make it one-way northbound!
I'm in favour of the general idea, and lots of the traffic calming proposals would be useful improvements, but I do have doubts about the quality and diligence of the consultation process.
Bear in mind that when the 20mph zone was introduced for Grange road, they were unaware of a previous 20mph zone applying to the roads off Grange road (Crimscott St, Pages Walk, Willow Walk) etc, and have subsequently removed the latter zone.
