PRESS RELEASE FROM BROMLEY LABOUR COUNCILLORS
Tuesday 13 November 2018
For immediate release.
Time to speak up for road safety
Following the publication in 2017 of the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy, London Boroughs were required to develop plans for implementing this strategy within their areas via the development of Local Implementation Plans (LIPs).
Bromley Council published their draft LIP for consultation on 2nd November and are now inviting residents, businesses and community groups to comment on the proposals contained in the LIP. The consultation closes on 13 January 2019.
Cllr Ian Dunn, Labour’s Spokesperson for Environment and Community Services said:
“Labour Councillors are aware that an awful lot of people across our Borough are concerned about transport and road safety, and we have called on the Tories numerous times to review their very thin and sketchy policies.
This consultation provides the best opportunity for members of the public to get involved and have their say on issues such as reductions in the use of cars and the introduction of 20 MPH speed limits. Neighbouring boroughs have implemented 20 MPH limits across all their roads – Bromley Tories refuse to. It’s time the public had their say.
As Labour councillors we are meeting with local community groups and talking to residents about this issue; anyone who wishes to have their say can fill in the consultation online on Bromley Council’s or can email me directly with their views”
