Some of our residents said:

“There is no need for cafe culture to block streets. You can have a cafe culture on pavements.”

“Because of the reasons I have previously explained, plus STOP FIXING THINGS THAT ARE NOT BROKEN. These initial measures should never have been brought into force in the first place. They were completely unnecessary and achieved NOTHING in regard to making walking or cycling ‘safer’.”

“I am disabled and the taxi cannot stop at Wetherspoons etc.”
