    Where is the Council's mobile phone mast register and why do telecom providers not use it? In particular, I refer to the very intrusive proposal in Latchmere Lane for a very high mast and a large amount of ancillary equipment immediately adjacent to your Wildway environmental improvement area.

    Why not bring back trams to Kingston?They used to run on time and not cause traffic jams.Other cities have them and they are very efficient you can plan your journey accurately. The old tram lines probably still exist under the latest wave for paving stones. LTN do not work as the traffic just goes somewhere else. Electric cars are too expensive for the majority of people. The cycle lanes are often dangerous and badly signposted. If you are going to block roads, then let motorists know - clear signage needed.

    What's the point of all these consultation exercises when you just ignore them and carry on regardless, in particular the clear majority of people opposing the LTNs!?

    Thank you for your email.

    The Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) scheme on King Charles Road was first introduced on a trial basis in September 2020. During the first six months of the trial residents were encouraged to share their views with us on Let's Talk, by email/phone and via official objections on our website. Opinion was very evenly split across the board - particularly from within the immediate LTN area (with 46.5% in favour of making the scheme permanent and 48.8% opposed). The main concerns raised by residents were the possibility of displaced traffic and a lack of suitable signage, as a result we introduced clearer road markings and more advanced signage.


    We also carefully monitored the scheme throughout and the resulting data yielded some really encouraging results, with traffic reductions recorded on nearly all monitored roads in and around the scheme, as well as a 39% increase in cycling within the LTN. After carefully assessing all feedback received and data gathered a decision was taken to make the scheme permanent.

    However, we are still listening and we want to ensure that this scheme is as beneficial as possible for the local community, if you have any suggestions or ideas for how this scheme could be more effective please share them with us at: https://kingstonletstalk.co.uk/low-traffic-neighbourhoods.


    We will also continue to monitor in and around the scheme with additional traffic and air quality surveys and will be creating a new traffic master plan for Berrylands Ward to help mitigate any potential impacts on the roads surrounding the scheme.

    Best wishes

    How do you find out what any survey results showed? A report must be written for council and you could put a link to the reports here with the projects. People are much more likely to spend time filling out surveys if they can see the results

    Feathers asked 4 months ago

    Hi there 

    Many thanks for your question. Please can you let us know if you are referring to a particular survey? We endeavour to publish results as soon as we can. If you provide your email address, we can keep you informed.

    Please can you look at extending the scheme to the A3 service road on the Portsmouth bound side (Robin Hood way) as there is already a hedge on the London bound side? The residents on this side of the A3 would love to see more greenery and will stop people visiting Richmond Park parking on the grass verge, which shouldn’t be happening anyway. Thank you.

    Thank you for your suggestion, we will be monitoring the pilot projects this year from both a public acceptance and ecological perspective, following this period we hope to expand this approach to other areas and we will definitely take recommendations from local residents into account as part of this process.

    How do I sign up for update on a specific scheme? I cannot find a link anywhere for this, but I know there is something available as I had something forwarded for comment. I am specifically interested in the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, but as chair of my local residents association there are other things I need to be up to date on. Thanks
