Planned CPZ expansion in Lewisham

Lewisham Council are planning to accelerate their Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) deployments across the borough. We very much welcome these plans as uncontrolled parking is blighting many areas of the borough. Pavement parking, abandoned vehicles and blocked accesses are currently a major issue for pedestrians and people on bicycles alike. However we believe Lewisham’s CPZ implementations could be much smarter than they have been to date to deliver significant environmental,… Read More »Planned CPZ expansion in Lewisham

Covid shadow over Lewisham cyclists

  • by

Reflections for anyone interested in the climate emergency, sustainable travel, and improving health and equality. By any measures Lewisham has had a poor pandemic in terms of improving the borough for people on bicycles. While neighbouring authorities have put down new cycle lanes, installed filters to reduce through traffic, and introduced Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs), Lewisham has achieved comparatively little to date. Of the six filters Lewisham installed in March,… Read More »Covid shadow over Lewisham cyclists

Answering “The Horrified Cyclist”

  • by

Local cyclist, environmentalist and Labour member Matthew Snowling, (those are the words he uses to he describe himself, by the way) recently wrote a piece for One Lewisham, attacking the LTN’s. I read it. I’m so fed up of unsubstantiated, poorly evidenced attacks on any attempts to reduce car use and finally decided I just couldn’t ignore this one. Especially as it’s from a cyclist and someone who claims to… Read More »Answering “The Horrified Cyclist”
