  1. Just had the NEP proposals through. There is no way of working out what their plans are for the square and the website says they are being finalised. How can I vote? I want traffic calmed but not by diverting it round the square so 3 sides are jammed up rather than one. The obvious solution is blocking the Clapham Road entrance except to cycles and pedestrians and turning the non-overlooked parts of that into a service area for bins, bike parking, Barclays bikes etc but it doesn’t look like that is being offered…How weird?

  2. What are the NEP proposals? Clearly trafic calming and more people(pedestrian) friendly parking is well overdue. I’m not convinced that completely closing the Clapham Rd/Albert Sq intersection is in the interest of residents. Perhaps a timed access junction aimed at peventing the rat run traffic, (as suggested at one of the AGM’s in the 1990’s), would be a better solution. Anyway, will the residents actually get a say?

  3. The NEP proposals are set out in the consultation document that Lambeth have just posted to all residents in the Oval area. The proposals were developed in consultation with local residents’ associations, including ASSA. There is a short questionnaire with the proposals for people to complete, and I would encourage everybody to do so.The partial one way traffic system proposed for the streets covered by ASSA is a compromise solution: it should help reduce rat running through our streets, but it will not prevent access to them. Other residents’ associations made clear in the discussions with Lambeth that they would strongly oppose any measures, such as barriers or preventing access to Albert Square from Clapham Road, which would have the effect of diverting additional traffic to their areas.

  4. This paragraph is genuinely a fastidious one it helps new the web people, who are
    wishing in favor of blogging.
