    Looks good... the title seems to be a rip-off of "Sustainable Energy Without the Hot Air" which is fairly essential reading, and made available to everyone for free.

    Looks like you have to buy this one though.

    Anyone wondering what to get me for Christmas?

    Got this today:

    (Wonder who has been invited to the "public realm steering group"? As first time I have heard its meeting.)



    Change of time: The next meeting of the LJ Neighbourhood Planning Forum will take place on Thursday 28 January at 8pm at the Loughborough Centre.
    The next meeting of the Forum was due to take place on Wednesday 20 January but has been put back to Thursday 28 January to allow for the availability of Councillor Matt Parr and the results of Lambeth's bid to the GLA regeneration fund for the Loughborough Farm triangle site which should be known on 21 January.

    The time of the meeting has been put back in order that Councillor Brathwaite's public realm steering group can meet beforehand at 6.30pm. The progress of this group with be an item on the agenda which is to follow.

    Please do ring if you have any queries

    See below links to:

    What has happened is that the Council has now caved in completely to the motorist.

    There will be a further statutory consultation on the "improvements" that the new steering group are formulating. This is planned to be soon. Will let people here know when they start.

    My opinion is that its a farce. All suggestions to reduce road traffic have been ruled out of the discussion. So the new improvements will be motorist first, pedestrians and cyclists second.

    So people will not be given different options to comment on. All roads will be open to the motorist. See the opening up of Padfield and Calais road. So I don’t know what exactly we are going to be asked to comment on - very little imo.

    It is conceivable that in the next couple of years the issue might come back - when the Higgs and Hinton Road sites are built. They would be far more affected by traffic than the Loughbrough Estate I imagine. Loughborough has plenty of space whereas the new buildings will be right on the road it looks like.

    Not sure which thread to post this but here goes;

    ‘Mini Holland’ scheme hailed as major success as traffic falls by half

    Angellic posted this up on LJ Masterplan thread. More appropriate here.

    Its the Walthamstow "mini Holland"

    Waltham Forest Council pushed it through despite opposition. This article suggests its becoming a success.

    Lambeth have effectively ditched there manifesto committment to making Lambeth a cycle and pedestrian friendly borough.

    I have seen the Walthamstow Mini Holland as a friend of mine lives in it.

    It basically stops rat runs.

    Lambeth even gave up on keeping Padfield Road ( by the Coop) from being a rat run to avoid the lights at the junction.
