Engagement and consultation
In May and June 2020, we received over 4000 contributions from 866 respondents to our initial Streetspace consultation. Through that survey, we asked respondents to tell us what issues they had identified at the locations they were making suggestions about. This is what they told us:
- 310 Lack of space for cycling
- 283 High vehicle speeds
- 241 Lack of space for walking
- 220 Narrow pavements
- 191 Congested pavements
- 37 Disorganised queuing outside shops
Respondents were encouraged to tell us their experience travelling around during the pandemic, and what their initial level of support for our Streetspace programme was.
The survey found that:
- 61% of respondents supported measures to reduce traffic speeds and/or volumes to allow for social distancing (12% against)
- 56% of respondents supported the idea of more permanent measures that seek to reduce traffic on residential streets (16% against)
Since implementing the first trial measure last summer, we have run a consultation programme to collect as much feedback as possible, including our Streetspace survey and a series of online engagement sessions for residents and business-owners. You can access the presentations and Q&As for these sessions using the links listed at the bottom of this page.
The review process is well underway for schemes implemented in Phases 1 and 2 of the Streetspace programme, and the consultation on those initial trials that began last summer has been completed, with a total of 8,724 survey responses. This feedback and the emails we received are being analysed by an independent consultant as part of the review process. Their findings, available on this webpage from March 2021, will be reviewed by the council to help determine which schemes are to be made permanent, adapted, or removed.
