Stop Mini Holland coming to Higham Hill

This petition had 31 supporters

It is my understanding that there is a petition to bring Mini Holland to the Higham Hill area of Walthamstow because 3 cars were seen speeding. Speeding occurs and yes its dangerous but let's petition for a speed camera instead of trying to close even more roads in Walthamstow. I don't know about you but I find it increasingly difficult to navigate Walthamstow on a bus with a buggy and small child. Let's be real, the W15 isn't exactly child friendly, large enough or frequent enough to cope as it is. There isn't a viable alternative to driving in Walthamstow with small children yet. I don't see why I should have to wake my 6 year old up at 6am in the morning so that she can walk six miles before school so we can take her younger brother to his grandmother's who looks after him because both of us work!! Seriously..... 

Further, has anyone tested the level of pollution in Walthamstow lately? With the A406, all of the construction work and now local traffic in Walthamstow due to mini Holland and the gyratory works , pollution levels must be rising. Do you want to add to that?   

Finally, as reported by the Guardian in February 2017 delays to fire crews in Walthamstow have risen by nearly 50 per cent since Mini-Holland road closures began, a freedom of information request has revealed.

I am all for making our roads safer for cyclists but not to the detriment of everyone else. 

Please sign this petition if you like me disagree with the concept of closing all of our roads and causing yet more headache, delays to our emergency services, higher levels of pollution, traffic, and general misery for those of us who do need a car.
