"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19. A supportive councillor, Graeme Harrower, has written a…See More

TFL Consultation: central London bus services review

From Transport for London 28 September:

Today we have  launched our consultation on proposed changes to central London bus services to deliver an efficient, modern, simple network with buses in the right places at the right times.  

This is the first step in a major modernisation of the bus network in more than 16 years. London’s bus network is also crucial to its continued economic and social development, and will be vital in meeting the Mayor’s Transport Strategy target of 80 per cent of journeys being made using sustainable transport options by 2041.  

Currently some routes can be inefficient, unreliable, or overly complex, particularly where we’re not matching the number of bus services to the level of customer demand. For example Kingsway and Park Lane, is current served by more than 100 buses an hour, many of which are significantly underused. This oversupply impacts on bus reliability, journey times, congestion and air quality. 

Through our consultation we are proposing changes to 33 routes across central London, which will:

  • Restructure routes
  • Shorten routes
  • Change route frequencies
  • Withdraw three routes
  • Create one new route

These changes aim to modernise our bus services by matching capacity with demand.  This will help enable the delivery of year-on-year increases of outer London bus services.

The public consultation is open until 9 November. Please visit https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/central-london/?cid=central-... to provide your response.
