We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Pedestrianise the portion of Formosa St (W9) comprised between Castellain Road and Warrington Crescent. More details

Petition update from the council, 02 April 2012

Thank you for your online petition in respect of the pedestrianisation of Formosa Street between Castellain Road and Warrington Crescent.

City Council officers have carefully considered the issues that you have raised, particularly given the number of shops, restaurants and bars that are located in Formosa Street.
However, notwithstanding these concerns, the City Council’s policies do not support the proposed pedestranisation of this section of Formosa Street. Pedestrianisation could divert traffic to other local residential roads and could result in reduced access for local residents, businesses and visitors as well as longer journey distances and times, including increased response times for emergency vehicles.

In addition, there would be a loss of existing on-street parking spaces which are currently well used and have a high turnover because of their proximity to the local shops, restaurants and businesses.

I appreciate that this reply will be disappointing to you, but it is not always possible to satisfy all concerns given the complex transport issues in Westminster.

Yours sincerely,

ROSEMARIE MACQUEEN
Strategic Director Built Environment

More details from petition creator

As residents of the area we think that having this portion of street pedestrianised, given that it hosts numerous shops, restaurants,bars and pubs would greatly enhance the enjoyment that all the community could draw from this area. Little Venice and Maida Vale are Residential areas where lots of families with children live and it doesn't offer a place where families can sit and have a family meals without worrying about traffic and pollution. The passage through this street is not necessary to go from one end to the other, as this could be easily achieved by going around the block which hosts the Prince Alfred pub and the Colonnade hotel without affecting circulation. The parking spaces in the street that would be sacrificed would be few and the local business owners that we spoke to are enthusiastic about the idea. We believe that closing this portion of street to traffic would create a precious space for all the community to enjoy.
