Let's make it more of a regular feature!
I really hope this encourages more people to see the potential benefits of either a permanent closure or certainly more frequent closures in relation to community events and market days.
My gut feeling is that the most significant hurdle to the full scale pedestrianisation is the budget and there is a concern that budgetary constraints will therefore impact negatively on any final shape implementent.
In addressng this hurdle, there is every chance of having a phased approach...think closure, then softening of pavements and kerbs to emphasis the shared 'pedestrian' first nature of the scheme, then full on blown proper surface to bring the scheme in its final full-on Brockley moves forward glory!
18:15 15 March 2009. An update.
Following comments to this blog, I followed up the non-siting of a sign at one end of Coulgate Street. I am pleased to say that a sign was clearly visible this evening as I came home.
In addition officers confirmed earlier this afternoon that letters were sent to residents and businesses in the local area on 3 March 2009.
