We are quite definitely in the traffic calming season, but we also have news of the current Pollok Park consultation and the good news that Scotland’s Active Nation Commissioner has expressed support for our opposition to plans for University Avenue – but in news just in, Glasgow City Council maintain their view that there is no space for cycle lanes! Do read on for even more:Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 43, 17 September 2019: Even more traffic calming proposed and East Dunbartonshire aim to take the lead in banning school drop-offs”
Two cities? That’s Glasgow where we have on one side the positivity of the Avenues, the Development Regeneration Frameworks and advance news of the latest developments for Byres Road, while in residential areas we have a more outdated and reactive response to speeding traffic and the storage of private cars. There are currently four new proposals for traffic calming using the only method the City Council appears to know, ie speed cushions and we have the Council’s defence of proposals for the storage of private vehicles on our public roads all militating against active travel. Do read on for the detail of these and lots, lots more in this bumper edition.Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 42, 03 September 2019: We take the hump, in a tale of two cities”

This issue, a day late – sorry – contains news of proposed building works at Glasgow University that conveniently ignore the lack of cycling access, the South City Way advances to King Street, lots of forthcoming consultations and, in feedback, we hear that more parking attendants are to be employed in Glasgow – let’s hope they can get parking controlled, but do read on for more. There’s a surprising amount of news given that we are now into summer holidays.Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 38, 10 July 2019: the South City Way approaches the City Centre”
Ever so slightly staggering news in this issue of a bus/taxi/cycle gate installed in the Athletes’ Village in Glasgow in 2014 in the hope a bus service would be introduced. Surprisingly, since the City Council does not control the buses and they never applied for a Traffic Regulation Order (so it’s never been legal!) it’s to be removed – just as a new primary school is about to be opened right next to it!

Exciting proposals from Edinburgh and yet more patchwork 20mph schemes and speed cushions elsewhere – do read on.
