With the advent of the Lee Green Healthy Neighbourhood Scheme and the hugely contentious discussions about traffic being shifted away from Lee Green and into neighbouring areas, residents have set up a new fast-growing Facebook Group- Hither Green West Village.
The new group is not affiliated with the Hither Green Community Association.
The group has created a petition “LTN / HNS – Hither Green West – Catford North Cell”
Residents who live west of the station (Hither Green Lane side) are being asked to sign the petition because- and we quote:
Start Quote “ 1. We cannot continue to accept that our community suffers from heavy traffic, associated pollution any longer and need change.
2. The west side of Hither Green / Catford North cell area could be a pleasant place to live and work but it continues to be blighted by:
• Heavy traffic / congestion with associated pollution• Use as a cut through / rat-run between Lewisham High Street and the South Circular (and vice versa)
3. Having seen other schemes and potential associated benefits – we would also like an LTN / HNS to:
• increase physical activity through more walking and cycling• provide safer streets for our residents and particularly our children• significantly reduce non-residential traffic through our community• deliver improved air quality• benefit our local businesses• support LB Lewishams environmental objectives
Please sign this petition to help make our community a Low Traffic Neighbourhood and to become a safer, more pedestrian / cycling / family friendly place to live, work and shop.
Note: there is no age restriction on who can sign this petition, so your children can sign also:
