WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SCHEME

Council and Government

“This scheme works for TFL but fails for the residents of RBKC – we cannot support more restrictions on the efficient flow of traffic on our network.”
Cllr Cem Kemahli, RBKC

“While I am supportive of cycling and improving cycling safety, this scheme is ill-thought through. It will lead to increased traffic congestion, increased pollution, and traffic displacement to residential side streets. I am therefore opposing the scheme.”
Felicity Buchan MP

“TfL’s latest proposals to remove lanes of traffic to make way for a new cycle lane on Holland Park Roundabout will lead to more congestion, not less. With existing cycling infrastructure already in place on the roundabout, I have to oppose these plans which will lead to more tailbacks on our roads.”

Organizations

“We appreciate TfL’s aims to encourage cycling but we believe this scheme will lead to more traffic congestion while disadvantaging disabled and visually impaired people who disproportionately rely on public transport and safe pathways for pedestrians.”

WHAT COUNCIL AND GOVERNMENT ARE SAYING ABOUT LOCAL DECISION MAKING

We applaud RBKC putting residents and their views at the heart of its decision-making.

“We put residents at the heart of everything we do. They have told us their priorities for their communities, and we have listened.”
Elizabeth Campbell, March 2019 Council Plan

“What’s most important to our communities? Residents want to see the borough’s unique and attractive surroundings maintained and businesses supported.”

March 2019 Council Plan

“The Council needs to change – it needs to communicate better with residents, involve local people in decisions, be sensitive to local needs and differences.”
March 2019 Council Plan

We applaud the mayor’s desire to let local people decide what’s best for them:

“The closer decisions are taken to the people they impact, the better they are.”
Mayor Sadiq Khan
