LarkLane Lover started this petition to Liverpool City Council and

The government has encouraged local councils to regenerate local businesses to recover from Covid-19. As a result, Liverpool City Council (LCC) has been given funds on a "use it or lose it" basis. LCC has now rushed into a scheme on Lark Lane that is ill-thought through and inappropriate for the area, leaving both businesses and residents very concerned. Conservation area Lark Lane now looks more like a motorway construction monstrosity. Moreover, encouraging pavement drinking without sufficient monitoring has led to lager fuelled disputes. We want socially responsible bars and restaurants to operate on the Lane and an end to the bollard madness.

Out of the 60 traders on the Lane only 12 were present for the swiftly convened consultation meeting, which led to the instalment of neon-coloured bollards, set to remain in place for at least 18 months. Moreover, the social distancing calculations for outside seating and the walking pedestrians are less than 2 metres apart, failing to follow the government’s own 2 meter distancing rule. LCC contracted a planning and consultancy company - so where is the planning and where was the consultation?

In summary there are three points, 1 remove the plastic pollution of polymer dividers. 2 proper and legal social distancing and 3 the enforcement that LCC is duty bound for the health and safety of the public.

Do you agree? Please Save Lark Lane and sign the petition. Thank you!
