• All Airline Passengers Over 6'5" Should Be Given Upgraded Legroom on ALL Flights
    Even on a flight of two hours a person can experience large amounts of discomfort not being able to sit the way their body naturally should. This increases chances of DVT and a build-up of lactic acid. Moreover, it is hard to fully accommodate the brace position, if necessary, in such a situation.

  • Stop rural speeding in Crowntown
    Rural speeding by motorists has become an ever more daily experience for all rural residents and this is especially so for those who live in the Crowntown area of Sithney Parish near Helston in Cornwall. The road between Helston and Camborne and Hayle has become a major commuter link and Crowntown experiences amongst the highest speeds through it as it is one of the few only straight pieces of road on the route. It has been estimated that speeds of up to 80mph have been witnessed on a daily basis. It is only a matter of time before serious injuries or fatalities occur. Sithney School is on the route and the substantial increase in new housing in the area has led to more pedestrians and people leaving their properties, both on foot and in their cars. Many residents report 'near misses' in this respect and have learned to be anxious about leaving their homes to use the road. The development of a local Speedwatch group was discussed in the early part of 2020, but the Covid-19 Pandemic has put paid to anything like that for the foreseeable future. The views and daily experiences of Crowntown and other local residents similarly affected (such as those in the Pednvounder area south of Crowntown), whilst supported by Sithney Parish Council, are not being listened to and heard by Cornwall Council, who have the power to introduce traffic calming measures, both to reduce speeds as well as to identify offending behaviour. The Council must listen, hear and, most importantly, act now.

  • Traffic Speeds on Clifton Grove
    We have lost two cats and several more have died due to reckless speed entering and departing Clifton Grove. Children play in the street due to not having gardens. It is only a matter of time before a child is injured or killed in this very narrow cul-de-sac.

  • Low Emission Zone Exemption for Taxis
    1) The Scottish Government has declared a climate emergency. Many local authorities, including Scotland’s biggest city, Glasgow, have stated intentions to become carbon neutral by 2030, seven years ahead of schedule. Rather than push taxi operators into diesel (euro 6) upgrades by January 1st, 2023, with only modest CO2 reductions, 2027 would allow the electric taxi market to develop and offer future-proof vehicle upgrades. 2) The taxi trade has been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus crisis. The trade depends greatly on the hospitality, leisure travel and tourism sectors. It is no exaggeration to suggest that the future of on demand, fully wheelchair accessible Hackney cab transport is at serious risk.

  • Introduce Speed Restriction on A980 Beltie Road (Sundayswells)
    We, the residents of the area (also known locally as Sundayswells) have long campaigned for necessary action to be taken due to the built up nature of the stretch, also leading down Beltie Road. We believe a 30mph zone is required in addition to enforcement of the limit by Police Scotland. We, the residents, believe this is a very dangerous stretch of road with multiple dwellings roadside, and is used as a footpath and cycle path for young. Recent events of a car leaving the road and ending up down a bank prove that not enough due care and attention is given by road users. Only by reducing this speed limit may we see a reduction in the speed cars and heavy good vehicles pass by our community.

  • Road Safety in Aireborough
    Speeding and antisocial driving are of significant concern to many residents. We would like to see speed limits and road safety measures reviewed and more frequent speed monitoring on several roads, at the times when residents know that the issues are most severe.

  • Speeding Vehicles on Thornhill Road
    Many residents in Streetly cross Thornhill Road to access Sutton Park for walks and bike rides. This can be particularly hazardous due to vehicles travelling well in excess of the 30mph speed limit. We would like the Council and Police to take action against these drivers and create crossings to allow access to the park in a safe manner.

  • BRING BACK OUR TRAINS IN WEST OXON
    The Oxford-Witney-Carterton A40 corridor is already congested and thousands of new houses are being built or planned, with consequently even more cars on the existing roads. Previous County plans going back to 2001 had envisaged the urgent need for the creation of alternative forms of transport on this busy corridor, exploring various possibilities including a rail link. The previous MP pledged in his maiden speech to work towards the reopening of a rail link between Oxford and Carterton. Twenty years later we the people of West Oxfordshire and Oxford are still waiting. We, therefore, request to: a) plan a viable and sustainable rail route from Oxford to Carterton alongside the A40 corridor protecting the proposed route from further development b) cost the route in question and work with central government and the rail authorities towards the creation of this link

  • Stop Speeding through our Village
    We are seeing an increase in both motorbikes and cars speeding through the village, putting themselves, other motorists and pedestrians and local families at risk of serious injury or death and creating excessive noise pollution. If you are concerned about this growing problem, please sign our petition calling for action to be taken to prevent future accidents and deaths and reduce noise levels.

  • Cycle tracks in Farnham
    Farnham has worse air pollution than 97% of British towns, plus serious road and car park congestion threatening the viability of Farnham's shops. Worse still, air pollution now kills more people than smoking. Getting people out of cars and onto bikes can help with all of these problems.

  • Get the 410 back on Auckland AND keep the Low Traffic Neighbourhood
    We've enjoyed the quieter roads that we've had because of roadworks and lockdown. We want to keep Auckland Road as it is: 1. No longer a rat run with threatening speeds and dangerous overtaking. 2. Less polluted, less noisy, less traffic jams. A liveable neighbourhood. 3. The freedom to allow people to walk, cycle and scoot. This all contributes to a stronger, healthier community. We DO want to see a return of the 410 bus. The bus gate will: 1. Allow the elderly, the young and the less able-bodied the chance to visit Crystal Palace and Croydon without walking too far. 2. Allow the bus to travel without getting stuck in traffic jams. A quicker, more efficient service! This would begin to transform the area. This will be a "change for good".... #streetspace

  • Upper Tooting LTN
    This area is increasingly used as a rat run by traffic from outside the area. Huge volumes of traffic are crossing a residential area, causing air and noise pollution that affects the health of everyone, including children attending a nursery school. We want to reclaim the streets for local people, to make it easier to walk and cycle, and to improve the Common for all. We would also encourage the Council to create LTN's in neighbouring areas, and to look to reduce traffic on residential roads throughout our borough. Why now? Elmfield and Oakmead Roads are already blocked. These barriers make things better for their area, but worse for everyone else at the Southern end of the estate. Without your support for this wider neighbourhood scheme there is a big risk that the traffic will continue to worsen and that more isolated measures will help some roads to the detriment of others.
