• bus stops outside lewisham police station
    they want to move the bus stops 150 metres from where they are. many people use these bus stops, including a lot of pensioners. i believe there can be a better solution than moving the stops.

  • Permit free bus pass use before 09.30
    Wiltshire Council have a logo that states: 'Where Everybody Matters'. Clearly this is not the case if you're elderly, disabled or have a disability and qualify for a bus pass to enable you to maintain your independence. Our son has Aspergers as well as other complex issues and he has been able to maintain a work placement with the use of a bus pass that has a carer's entitlement on it. Now he will find it difficult to attend his work placement as he has to be there before 09.00 am and also to except these changes. It has taken us two years of hard work to get him this far and also to obtain this very important life line to maintain his independence and enable him to feel part of the community. Now he will have to pay for the bus and also any carers that go with him as he qualified for a bus pass under the councils guidelines for obtaining one now their putting further restrictions on his travel and his independence. We have elderly men and women who served in the forces during the war to defend this country and this is how Wiltshire Council treats them. DISCRIMINATION is a powerful word and this is what Wiltshire Council are doing to a large section of the community in Wiltshire that are dependent on these bus passes to maintain there Independence and also to be less dependent on Social Services or the Health Authority.

  • Cycle Routes on A66, A19, A689
    I have spoken to stockton borough council today about their cycle path policy, there are plans in place and I am waiting for a copy of them to be emailed to me, they have £750 K in the pot and that will mostly be spent on eaglescliffe, stockton and some other places. Wynyard & Billingham don't seem to have anything assigned to them as they are waiting on a decision as to whether the hospital goes ahead and the building of the school and approximately 1200 houses, shops etc. If and obviously it's a BIG IF, this all this goes ahead, the builders or whoever is responsible will have to fork out for the cycle paths and new road infrastructures. WELL that's all very well I said, BUT what if it doesn't ? 2 people have been killed on their bikes in just over a year that is 2 people too many for my liking, 2 families devasted. What are WE going to do about it ???? We need to do something now and get something sorted just incase, we need to work together as a little town to sort this out.... Yes he said you are right !! Think my school mistress persona took over a little bit. oh and by the way, my mistake about their policy not being updated since 2006 it was 2011......... 3 years ago. The council seems to be using the pot of money they have to build cycle paths in the most unnecessary places. I disagree with them expecting others to do their job, what cost do we put on peoples lives ?

  • Scrap HS2 - Help the Flooded
    Thousands upon thousands of people have been immensely affected by the flooding this year. In Looe, Cornwall, the fishermen cannot brave the current conditions, and are losing their livelihood. The UK government's response is to raise funding for flood prevention by a measly £100million this year. Permanent solutions will cost billions of pounds - which could come out of the £40bn budget for the HS2 rail scheme. HS2 is a luxury which we don't need right now, especially in the current financial climate.

  • Children's Safety
    Everyday there are reports of cars jumping the lights. Our children's safety is very important and there have been incidents where children have nearly lost their lives. This campaign wants to prevent this happening, so please take a few minutes out and sign this petition and share it around. We need 1000 signatures for County Council and I need everybody's help. Already, in the short amount of time I have been dealing with this, Highways did find a fault on the timing of the lights and this has been adjusted. So, if we all pull together, we can achieve the goals and make it a safer crossing for the children.

  • Railway Matters (And Railways Matter)
    A national need, highlighted by the resent desperate situation in Cornwall: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26042990 Also large areas of central of Wales and the English Midlands (not least Lutterworth and many towns and villages in Leicestershire along with those in many other counties in the Midlands and the North) were deprived of services when the Great Central and local lines were closed. Beeching's "one route only from major city A to major city B" left thousands of towns and villages without rail access, also leaving many major towns in close geographic proximity without direct links. Roundabout routes may be OK for freight and mail, but they simply are not efficient for commuters, especially at a time when pollution, energy needs and road maintenance costs all point towards the better, greener alternative; rail. This is made all the more relevant by the need to reduce road traffic, and plan for a more environment-friendly future.

  • Hands off London Transport
    The Tube, as a public service, should be affordable, accessible, safe, and reliable. Removing station staff will hinder accessibility and safety. Closing ticket offices will remove a valued customer service.

  • Cycle Routes
    We have just heard that Bradley Wiggins, victor of the Tour de France has been knocked of his bike on one of our roads. If he is not safe then who is? This would be a good time to bring this initiative forward. In this area of Wales there are wide margins on a number of roads where cycle/footpaths could be laid and the situation is similar in many other locations - this would be a start. It would reduce road casualties and allow children to go by foot and by cycle to school and so reduce the traffic of the school run. It would also create thousands of jobs.
