RBWM Low Traffic Neighbourhood Consultation Clewer & Dedworth

I have spent the last couple of days walking the streets of Clewer & Dedworth West distributing A3 posters to businesses and fixing to lamp posts. I dropped a couple into Horler’s, who I have known for years, they sold our Clewer Hill Road property a few years ago. Bradley said, “Are you responsible for this Jon, it’s a mad idea?”

I replied, “No, it has come from Tory HQ, there are schemes being deployed across the UK. The main reason given is around helping reduce the pressure on the NHS by encouraging cycling and walking as healthy exercise. I have been assured by Cllr. Clark, Lead Member Transport and Infrastructure & Digital Infrastructure Champion, that if more people say NO than YES that the scheme will not be implemented.”

If people don’t respond because they don’t know about it then indifference will be assumed… he didn’t say that, that’s how it is with consultations. So I and fellow Cllrs from West Windsor, are ensuring that as many people know about the consultation in as COVID friendly way as possible.

The posters are neutral in their presentation and don’t carry any political branding and so we were given permission to put them on lamp posts and other council street furniture. Many shops have taken them.

Ironic putting poster on bridal path sign from yesteryear!

I’d also like to give recognition that the idea of creating posters for lamp posts came from a discussion with the HR Manager at my work who suggested putting them around the store, with the Manager’s permission.

If you know of older residents in your street who are unlikely to have read about the consultation on social media then please print off the RBWM LTN Consultation A4 version and drop it through their letter box so they can have their say.

Jon
