The dust has barely settled from the controversy of LTN’s and School Streets implemented in past months and a recent Social Media posting about a Focus leaflet distributed in Carshalton Central brought wider attention to a live consultation on the Council website for the school streets scheme for All Saints School in Rotherfield Road.
One questions the wisdom a graphical representation to show the Labour Party’s position when the same graph serves to contradict the usual “Liberal Democrats Winning Here” but then none of the content of these leaflets survives careful examination!
Apparently local residents have also received letters about the consultation.
However, those with school age children will know that school allocation is not always “round the corner” and they have to travel around the borough to get their kids to school.
So I thought I would check out what other consultations are happening on school streets and the list on the Council website is extensive. Log on to https://www.sutton.gov.uk/schoolconsultation and you will see a list that looks like this:
The concerning thing is that the consultation period is 15th March – 4th April. They say that there will be a statutory consultation in the summer with a view to approved schemes going liove in Autumn 2021.
PLEASE if this affects you, make your voice heard, complete the consultation before 4th April
