CPZ Consultation: Residents having their say

This has appeared on a lamp post on the street (also, see comments from a couple of residents below the image):



A couple of residents write:

“Just a big thank you to ever has put up the CPZ blurb on the lamp post. I know we don’t all think the same but please can we encourage everyone to at least read it! As well as stating the arguments put forward on the lamp post, we have asked the Council to make the process transparent and to allow us to view the results i.e. all the forms, to ensure fair play.”

“Fingers crossed Elmfield Road at least can remain CPZ free, because the introduction of it will make absolutely no difference to the situation we have at the moment, except that we will be paying for it!! As you know our research a few months ago revealed that there are parking spaces available in all the surrounding roads during the day including ours. And ours has parking spaces available at all times day and night.”

“The pressure sometimes occurs in the surrounding roads in the evening as residents return from work, with some of them owning 2 or 3 cars per household and wanting to park in front of their houses. The CPZ will not alleviate this problem as it doesn’t apply in the evenings!”

“The small print in the survey states that individual roads can be excluded from the scheme if residents don’t want it – let’s make Elmfield Road an exception to the rule.”

Coming towards Halloween again…

Still time to register a stall for free on the St James Big Local Jumble Trail


Council funds walthamstow market survey

With questions like ‘what do you especially like about the market’ restricted to 1 or 2 respomses, but you can give as many answers as you like when asked what you don’t like.  Current settings don’t allow you to move through the survey unless you select at least one thing you dislike. Seems like they don’t like the market. Do you? If so, take the survey and make sure to let them know.


Hedgehog update

Hedgehog alert

We’ve seen a hedgehog walking in the road twice this week at between 9pm – 10pm, so if you are driving around that time please keep a look out for him/her.

Even more photos
