SAY NO TO GENTRIFICATION
Plans proposed by Islington Council are set to gentrify the area, by way of major pedestrianisation , creating a two.way street outside Scottis ,and a Total ban on parking . This will have a devastating impact on the current character of Scottis and I fear for its future.
Islington Council have deemed that Scottis, a family business of over 50 years ,serving the ever evolving community,business and residential , as NOT WORTHY as a place of interest.
Clearly ,I attract the wrong sort of clientele !
This is Social Cleansing by stealth.
We also want improvements to the area. But a place for all people and users
A modicum of parking and access is required for ALL BUSINESSES on the Green.
Current plans ,proposed by Islington council to remove all 42 parking bays on Clerkenwell Green , will force vehicles to look for non existence parking bays in the surrounding RESIDENTIAL streets populated by the Peabody Estate.
This would create a ‘rat-run’, severely increasing the POLLUTION levels on the Green and Close.
The only beneficiaries of the proposed plans are the residents of the Sekforde Street, by its access only route ,turning it into Clerkenwell ’s own “ Private Millionaire Row”.
This CLASS distinction has to STOP !!!
We ask Islington Council to withdraw these proposals and re-draw its plans, and the reinstatement of SOME parking bays on the Green.
