Regent's Park Protest - 12 Sept

Dear John,

A group called Parks For People are planning a socially distanced pedestrian protest at 10am on Saturday 12th September to call for an end to through traffic in Regent's Park.


CycleSuperHighway 11 was consulted on at the start of 2016 and was to run through the outer circle of Regent's Park – a notorious rat run with speeding traffic. All it needed was to close four of the gates to the park and the rat runs could have been stopped, while keeping access for the residents within the park.


As we approach the end of 2020 we’ve still not seen even a scaled down plan which would have seen just two gates closed for limited times. The blocker is the Crown Estates Paving Commission (CEPC) who manage the roads within the park and the gates themselves.


The meeting place for the protest is outside the Park Square East Gates on The Marylebone Road. Details can be found here

While you might turn up by bike, we’d like to emphasise the value of this cycling link for everyday cycling as well as exercise, so everyday clothing is preferred.


Warm wishes,

LCC campaigns team
