An article from Sutton Counsellors announcing the plan:

(Please do not send any money/chip in - this is not a fundraising petition)

Sutton council has proposed a scheme to close the road between Esher Avenue and Wrayfield Road (by the entrance to Fairlands Park) to all traffic except buses, emergency services and cycles. This will be implemented in September with absolutely NO public consultation, it has been put forward as an ‘experimental’ scheme therefore residents will only be asked for feedback 6 months after it has been put in place! This will have an impact on the residents of The Park Farm estate and the surrounding areas and we do not agree that such a plan should be implemented without any public consultation!

The scheme looks to tackle a reduction of the volume of traffic cutting through the estate to create a quieter and safer area for residents, walkers and cyclists going to the local schools and shops in North Cheam, but the plans as they stand will just push the problem elsewhere.

We know that some local areas can be busy but under the current proposed scheme, cars will simply use other routes which will become more congested - this scheme will not reduce the number of cars in existence!

This proposal will have a huge impact on the area and is being rushed through without any consultation or proper planning to tackle the problems it will create. It will only make the roads that they close safer for cyclists and pedestrians but will cause chaos to the surrounding roads, so in trying to resolve a problem in one area it will cause a negative impact everywhere else!

We acknowledge that there does need to be a change to reduce traffic and pollution and to make the area safer for cyclists and pedestrians but want to see a plan put in place that is more beneficial to the area and addresses the issues that this proposal doesn’t. Before anything is implemented we want a proper consultation for residents to give their feedback.

If you would like to try and stop this scheme from going ahead then please sign this petition.
