Closure of Tavistock Place 17/4/21

John Chamberlain
 

Just a warning that Tavistock Place will be closed tomorrow 17th between Marchmont Street and Herbrand Street for a crane installation. Diversion routes are a bit complex (westbound via Coram Street, eastbound via Brunswick Square) but it will be possible to walk through the closed section on the footway. It should all be done in one day but there is a backup to extend to Sunday.

BRIEF OVERVIEW

We would like to invite you to a landmark moment for nature & climate in London:

The Mayoral Environment Debate
Monday 12th April, 7.00pm – 9.00pm
Chaired by Julia Bradbury
Hosted by the More Natural Capital Coalition
 

The online debate, chaired by presenter & environmentalist Julia Bradbury, will be the spotlight moment for the environment in the Mayoral campaign, allowing candidates to put forward their policies on nature and climate to London’s voters.


We have invited all 5 main party candidates and Sian Berry (Green), Luisa Porritt (Lib Dem) Peter Gammons (UKIP) are all confirmed. Although it looks like neither Sadiq Kahn or Shaun Bailey will attend, Sadiq is sending Leonie Cooper (Assembly member) and Shaune is sending an MP in his place. The event will be hosted by BBC presenter, Julia Bradbury.


Key issues to be debated include: air pollution, ensuring London has thriving parks and green spaces, helping wildlife and our climate recover, support for green jobs and the development of more sustainable local transport infrastructure.


Register for your free online access to the debate here.


Email address to send your question for the candidates to is: matt@...


Post pandemic, we must take this opportunity to make London a greener, healthier city, so we hope you’ll join us on April 12th to send a very strong message to candidates, that the environment needs to be at the top of their priorities.

Lockdown countdown for cyclists


Kensington High Street Cycle Lane #makethelane #space4cycling

Steve Prowse
 

On the 17th March the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea will revisit their decision to remove the protected cycle lane on Kensington High Street. 
Due to lockdown, we can't organise an event, but can I encourage you to take individual action & go for your daily exercise that evening to show your support for a positive outcome. 
It should be a jolly evening with lots of other groups also out for a ride. I also recommend a night ride through Hyde Park. 
No specific timing or meeting place. Enjoy your cycle.

Consultation on proposed Pop-Up cycle lanes on Haverstock Hill

John Chamberlain
 

The deadline for responses to Camden's consultation on the proposed trial of cycle lanes and new Zebra crossings on Haverstock Hill is approaching (14th March). The proposal would extend the existing lanes on Prince of Wales Road and the southern part of Haverstock Hill up to Belsize Lane and the Royal Free Hospital. This route is a key element in Camden's expanding cycle network and is going to be critical in helping people travel to shops, schools and work while staying out of their cars.

If you haven't already replied in favour we would urge you to do so. There is a lot of opposition mainly because of the loss of car parking.

The consultation is on Camden’s website at https://consultations.wearecamden.org/supporting-communities/haverstock-hill/

The Online Survey is at the bottom of that page and is straightforward to fill in. Please answer Q7 and Q8 with “Strongly Agree”. And in Q10 tick off positive reasons for supporting the scheme. You need to provide a postcode - you don’t have to live in the area but if you don't it would be a good idea to explain why Haverstock Hill is a route you use.

More details on our website at https://camdencyclists.org.uk/campaigns-2/haverstock-hill-pop-ups/

Thanks! And please encourage your friends, neighbours and children to respond.

5:00-6:00pm GMT | 6:00-7:00pm CET | 12:00-1:00pm EST
