Myatts Field to Vassall Ward

Great news: our campaign is snowballing: as I write we have 103 signatures on our petition and are now engaging residents from across Vassall Ward.

This is important as any consultation will need to be across all areas of the ward not currently covered by resident’s restrictions (those north of Brixton Road are already covered).

We are campaigning for a consultation across the Ward.  The CPZ will only be implemented in areas in which there is a majority vote in favour of the CPZ.  It can be implemented street by street, but only in an area that makes sense.  For instance the area around the park could be covered but excluding Mostyn Road if they vote against it.  However there could not be a CPZ which included Templar and Welby but not Upstall Street.

We are in need of residents from further afield (particularly around Vassall Road and Cowley Road) to lead the charge in their neighbourhoods by putting up posters, distributing leaflets, getting a paper petition signed and generally talking to their neighbours.  If we are to succeed we need to demonstrate overwhelming public support for a consultation, and then to secure a majority positive vote.  This will rely on community engagement.

All hands on deck!
