Fresh drive for Coulgate Street part-pedestrianisation

The Brockley Cross Action Group have asked us to promote the Coulgate Street petition again.

The petition is in support of Coulgate Street being part-pedestrianised, to make the access to the station safer and more attractive.

The plans would need to allow for residents to continue to park on the street but they would not require a CPZ to be introduced - the measure would be highly-localised and could be relaxed in the evenings. There would also be allowance made for passenger drop-offs and for the fact that Speedicars taxis operate from the street.

The Brockley Assembly is pushing for this issue to be looked at in more detail and Lewisham Council has already raised the idea with TfL, although the reality is that funding will take some time to secure, even in the most optimistic scenario.

But if you'd like to see Coulgate Street be improved, please sign here now.

The initial ambition for the petition was to raise 200 signatures, a target we breezed through. Now at 259 signatures, BXAG want to get 1,000 signatures, which is the sort of size we need, to really get noticed by the Council.
