Our Council Liaison Officer Clare Neely reflects on Controlled Parking Zones
In my neighbourhood, the Ruskin Park area, we are getting together to campaign for a yes vote because research shows that although not many of us own cars we live in a highly polluted area.
Local children want to walk and cycle to school but carers and parents prevent them as cars parked on corners make it difficult to cross roads.
The area is a key walking and cycling desire line, criss crossed by local cycle routes, reducing motor traffic will encourage people who walk and cycle.
So although for a cycle campaigner campaigning for a CPZ at first felt like 'mission drift' I am now fully behind my neighbours who want a CPZ and we would welcome anyone who is interested in joining the campaign
