The Council is consulting on proposals to introduce pedal cycle parking sheds in our local roads. The impact on parking is low but nevertheless there will be a loss of parking places which is unnecessary. There are some times of day (and some days of the week) when parking is very difficult and any unnecessary loss of spaces should be challenged. The cycle parking can be located on the kerb build-outs at junctions or where the footway is sufficiently wide that they would not cause obstruction.
Please consider objecting to the Council's proposals at email@example.com. All you need is set out in the following draft email, and you can get more details from the street notices that are still in place next to the proposed sites.
"Proposed Pedal Cycle Parking Places (Amendment) Order
The Council gave notice of the above mentioned proposed Traffic Management Order on 31 January 2020. I wish to object to the following provisions on the grounds that they will result in the unnecessary loss of scarce on-street parking in an area of the Borough which experiences high levels of parking demand outside normal hours of control:
o/s 64 Victoria Road N22
o/s 8 Clifton Road N22
o/s 143 Albert Road N22
o/s 227 Alexandra Park Road N22.
All these proposed cycle parking places can be located on the wider parts of the footway or on one of the many kerb build-out at junctions. There is no need for any of the above proposals to result in the loss of on-street parking.
It relation to the Council's obligations to publicise these proposals and invite objections I am extremely concerned that the Council, having given notice on 31 January 2020, didn't publish the draft Order on its website until 27 February 2020; 6 days after the period of 21 days set aside for the receipt of objections had closed. I understand that as a result the Council has undertaken to extend the period for the submission of objections, but has not set a new end date. Please confirm that my objection has been received within the new (unspecified) deadline."
