Ban Cars from Richmond Park

We want to take cars out of Richmond Park and create a safer and pollution free environment for people to enjoy. We want a ban on cars commuting through Richmond Park during the week. On weekends we want cars to be restricted to accessing the car parks from the nearest gate.

Why is this important?

Richmond Park is a National Nature Reserve, an SSSI and a Grade 1 Listed landscape. The weekend closure would not only enhance the experience for cyclists and other users but would also promote the conservation, protection and improvement of the natural and physical environment of the Park, and its peace and natural beauty for the benefit the public and future generations.

The park is a great asset for SW London, it should be a safe place for families to explore and for people to ride bicycles around without having the roads jammed up with cars.

Reasons for signing

  • Because there are so few safe spaces for cyclists in London, and there are many roads around Richmond Park where cars could be diverted through at the weekend, instead of making the park a dangerous and unpleasant place for everyone enjoying the green space.
  • I cycle regularly in Richmond Park and feel the peace and tranquillity of the Park is being increasingly ruined by cars. I am baffled why people want to drive around the park when they could walk or cycle around it. Richmond council should move with the times and impose a car ban.
  • Cicling in Richmond park has become almost a pain with all the smog coming from cars
