We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked for views on the proposed introduction of a 20mph zone and other traffic calming measures in the Davenport Road area

You Said

11 responses were received to the online consultation
10 were within the consultation delivery area
1 was location unknown
 
We also issued a paper quastionnaire to residents in the area covered by the 20mph zone
 
676 letters were delivered. 250 people replied (including 10 online) which was a 37% response rate
212 (85%) were in favour of the proposed 20mph zone, 35 (14%) against and 3 (1%) were unsure
179 (72%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming, 59 (24%) against and 12 (5%) were unsure.

We Did

As a result of the support of the proposal, the City Mayor has approved the implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force early 2019.

We Asked

We asked how the proposed Putney Road scheme will affect the way you travel, as well as whether there were any other concerns with the scheme.

You Said

In total, 291 responses were received. 60.1% of these were opposed to the scheme, while 25.4% were positive. The remaining 14.4% of the responses were neutral or balanced.
The main points raised were the concern that the scheme will increase traffic in the surrounding areas, in particular Victoria Park Road and the Clarendon Park area, and that this will negatively affect air quality.
A further concern was that the scheme only caters to car users and does not do enough for sustainable modes of transport.

We Did

Monitoring the impacts of large highway schemes is undertaken by the city council on many large highway schemes. Due to concerns raised in the public consultation, we will monitor traffic flows in and around the Clarendon Park area and air quality in several locations.
Design changes have been made to the scheme to improve it for walkers and cyclists. The council is taking a balanced approach to improving transport in the city – there is a second NPIF funded project which will improve public transport.

We Asked

We asked for your views on proposed traffic calming measures in the Eyres Monsell area.

4,300 consultation packs were delivered to households in the area and 625 responses were received (including 44 online). This represents a 15% response rate.

You Said

72% of respondents were supportive of the introduction of a 20mph zone, while 25% were against.

60% or respondents voted for the traffic calming on Glenhills Boulevard, with 32% against.
 

We Did

These results will be reported to the City Mayor along with a summary of comments made as part of the consultation.
