Stukeley Street - Proposed Pedestrianisation Scheme Consultation

Closed 12 Dec 2011

Opened 9 Nov 2011

Results expected 4 Jan 2012

Overview

We are seeking your views on the Council’s proposal to pedestrianise the section of Stukeley Street between Smart’s Place and Drury Lane.
This end of Stukeley Street is already a no through road, and is little used by vehicular traffic. A large number of pedestrians also use this area, due to the International House Language School on Stukeley Street and St Josephs Primary School around the corner in Macklin Street.
The section closest to Drury Lane, is already unsuitable for traffic.
Camden Council feel that increasing the pedestrianised area will improve the local streetscape, and create a pleasant place for people to walk and relax. Seating and cycle stands will be provided, and trees will be planted if conditions allow. A short section close to Smart’s Place will be available for loading as well as the existing provisions on Drury Lane.
The proposals include to introduce a Restricted Parking Zone, pave the reduced road section of Stukeley Street, and install seating and plant trees where possible.

Why We Are Consulting

We need your views as this consultation exercise is intended to find out if there is broad public support for the proposals set out in the attached eaflet.

What Happens Next

consultation and the Council’s decision within three months, where possible.
