Why set up a Wandsworth Living Streets group?

The Mayor of London has announced that 2011 will be London’s Year of Walking. We feel it’s timely to establish a local Living Streets group, to work towards safe, attractive and enjoyable streets in our borough…. which means wider pavements, better crossings, comfortable places to sit down, streets that everyone can use, a convivial public realm, quieter and more peaceful roads, cleaner air….

If you would like to be involved in creating a voice for local pedestrians, why not come to our meeting and help shape what we do?

Agenda:

– Snacks/Ordering drinks/Getting to know each other
– Welcome: Introduction to Living Streets. See: www.livingstreets.org.uk
– Local Issues Wandsworth Living Streets might campaign on:
-> Transport for London’s proposed removal of eight pedestrian crossings across Wandsworth
-> 20mph speed limit in residential and local shopping streets
-> Making our Town Centres more people-friendly
-> Contributing to Wandsworth Local Implementation Plan
-> Supporting action on Albert Bridge
-> The London Mayor’s Year of Walking 2011
– Practical Arrangements – election of officers/postholders; future meetings

Please let one of us know if you can come:
