The BXAG Annual Open Event, September 24th


Rupert writes:

On behalf of the BXAG I would like to invite everyone at Brockley Central to our Annual Open Event on Saturday 24th September at John Stainer School, Mantle Road, Brockley SE4, from 11.00 - 12.30.

We have decided to hold our annual forum on a Saturday this year to make it more accessible to those who find evening meetings difficult to attend. Families with children will be very welcome.

There will be a number of exhibitions at the Forum, including the Council's TfL-funded proposals for pedestrian improvements around the Brockley Cross junction, which thanks to community feedback, have improved greatly in comparison to the original and much criticised proposals they consulted on back in December last year.

There will be a BXAG exhibition, a review of our recent activities and a consultation session where we will ask attendees to tell us what their concerns and priorities are for improvements around Brockley Cross, Brockley Road and Brockley Station! This should be very helpful and will help inform the activities and campaigns that BXAG works on in the coming year.

Does anyone have a link to the new TFL plans?

It's going to be a packed morning of local events this saturday!

Tim said...

I can't make it but request that we continue to push for CPZ and/or pedestrianised zone around the station.

Would be good to get some nice new shops in brockley cross. I went to Brockley mess on the weekend and it was packed with a massive queue, we could do with another one of these at Brockley Cross...

Do the plans involve pedestrian access to Brockley Station from the west side?

Issues said...

CPZ around the station will mean cpz for the whole of Brockley due to displacement. Is that what we want?

Tim said...

Yes, a CPZ is fine by me if it get's me a lovely traffic free area outside the station where people can sit in summer, and where businesses can flourish. Also, it will have the net effect of removing parked cars from Brockley as commuters no longer drive to the Brockley area to park up for the day.

I'm all for fewer cars. We've just moved to the area without a car, along with a few of our friends (also carless)

Welcome to the area. Cars aren't perceived as a problem here. We have plenty of vehicle based businesses. Cars liberate people and generally help them to make the most of life.

Yes, how liberating it is to be able to drive around London at roughly 10 miles per hour. All other modes of transport are akin to slavery in comparison.

Anonymous - you'd have a lot more credibility if you gave yourself an identity. I can never tell if "Anonymous" is one person or several, and it's hard to have a debate in those circumstances.

Regardless, I am not anti car. I own and regularly use a car. I love my car. I also love pleasant spaces without cars, where the public can congregate. As well as that dislike my area being used as a car park by people who have travelled from oustide the area.

CPZ Brockley said...

Yes welcome to CPZ!!! Less cars around the station and more benches for people to seat and talk.

The anonimous pro cars is probably from D&M car van

rb said...

More people to sit and talk, no doubt you'll be complaining about that too in a few years down the line when it's not quite the people you envisaged sitting down doing the talking.

@rb- interesting argument. Let's keep the doubly parking and the van rental as a measure against crime.

You are a genius!

@Genius - here is another idea to insure your future as political leader.

We can close down all shop on the high street or turn them in junk shops so that riots will never come to brockley.

I suggest you run at the next london elections, you have my vote

I can't make it but can someone ask when will the trees be planted on Brockley Road?

mini report said...

Part pedestrianisatian of Coulgate street and improvements to Brockley Cross streetscape: wider pavements an island for the zebra crossing, inclusion for cyclists' needs. No one is publicly clamouring for cpz. People don't want that in Brockley (at this time).

Good news on the CPZ. Shame about Coulgate St - a vocal minority getting their way in that case.

The mungs are like Hitler's Germany - fighting on 2 fronts now.

I understand that a new drug and alcohol support service proposed on Shardeloes Road was discussed at the AGM on 24 Sat. Can anyone tell me what was discussed?

Tamsin said...

Not discussed as such (so far as I am aware - I did not stay to quite the end) but someone from LBL was there there dishing out information, collecting case-work and, in fact, most rudely talking all through Rupert's presentation, even when they had been asked to keep things a bit quieter.
