Make Cavendish and Fairlawn Gates Access Gates for Residents not Revenue

This petition had 316 supporters

Recent changes to the way in which the access gates at Fairlawn and Cavendish operate were rushed in without sufficient consultation just months after thousands of residents joined a campaign against proposals to permanently shut the gates - showing how valuable and greatly appreciated the standing arrangement was. Whilst it is accepted that the way in which the gates are operated may have to change, the current scheme and signage is ill-thought out and could be perceived as entrapment. The changes were rushed in so quickly many had no idea the arrangement had changed. The current signage is so poor it is not clear motorists should not pass through open gates, especially when some sat nav systems direct them to do so! The current signage is not placed in an adequate location or made adequately visible. Bank holiday arrangements are not defined. Local residents as well as the local Conservative councillors and MP are willing to work with the administration in order to find a solution however it is not feasible to continue the CCTV scheme without major improvements.

We, the undersigned, urge the administration of the London Borough of Redbridge to rethink the CCTV scheme at Cavendish and Fairlawn access gates. Returning to the tried and tested physical closure of the gates or erecting more appropriate signage or pursuing an electronic signal system.
