Public Realm Improvement Scheme Charlotte Street - Percy Street - Rathbone Place

Closed 28 Apr 2011

Opened 28 Mar 2011

Results expected 30 May 2011

Overview

Charlotte Street is a busy commercial and residential street populated with a wide mix of restaurants, hotels and small businesses. The area therefore has many pedestrian visitors every day.

The council proposed a scheme to improve pedestrian and cyclist accessibility on the junction of Charlotte Street, Percy Street and Rathbone Place.

The proposed scheme included to:

  • improve pedestrian crossing points by widening the footways on the southern end of Charlotte Street to create more space for pedestrians and introduce new non signalised pedestrian crossing points, with dropped kerbs and tactile paving; and
  • convert Charlotte Street to two way working south of Goodge Street by removing no entry signs on the southern end of Charlotte Street to allow two way cycling.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like to hear your views on the council's proposals to improve pedestrian and cyclist accessibility on the junction of Charlotte Street, Percy Street and Rathbone Place.

What Happens Next

As the proposals fall on the borough boundary of the London Borough of Camden and the City of Westminster, both Councils will need to take a decision on the scheme, based on the consultation responses received. If the proposals are agreed, it is planned that the improvements will be implemented later this year.
