Re: Camden monthly Meeting draft agenda (16 Aug 2021)

Elena Moynihan
 

Hi Ema thanks.

Following all the interesting emails about vans/cars parking on cycle lanes, would it be of interest to talk about how we can encourage Camden Council to allow online reporting such as Westminster ?

I was also very impressed with the Haringey Councillor getting involved in the one instance in his borough, can we do something to make our own councillors better ?  a bit of pressure perhaps ?

Please do take 3mins to do this consultation - even if you are not local to it. Every 'stongly agree' counts to mitigate against the haters and never do goods.
You can copy / paste Jean's constructive comments too.

- for westbound cyclists, a bollard protected lane and a place to wait before turning right into the St Pancras Way cycle lane

Re: Car blocking cycle lane station Road Woodgreen

Bob Hare
 

I've reported to Haringey Council parking with Luke's photo ...

For parking / roads

Outside the Akdeniz small supermarket.

This photo was posted on the Camden Cyclists email list, and will have
been seen by very many people including members of in Haringey Cycling
Campaign.

Parking on this cycle lane is a regular occurrence.

Questions:
1) Can you use a photo from a member of the public to follow up with
the driver (warning or fine)? The information on date and time should
be contained in the photo, or I could ask the person who posted the
item.
2) I appreciate that the rubber cycle lane markers here may not have
been fitted with posts because of the requirement of the adjacent shop
for deliveries. Could an enforcement camera be installed at the start
of the lane opposite River Park House? Is there anything else that can
be done to prevent cars parking in the lane?

Many thanks.

Cllr Bob Hare
