Petition update from the council, 15 December 2020

Dear Mr Qureshi,

E-petition

To investigate the pedestrianisation of Formosa Street
https://petitions.westminster.gov.uk/FormosaSt-W9/

It is acknowledged that the petition received 309 signatures and its main statement read as follows:

We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to We the undersign petition Westminster City Council to investigate pedestrianisation of Formosa St (between Warrington Crescent & Castellain Road,W9) in order to make the street more attractive for local residents to shop, eat, socialise and support our vital local businesses.

It is noted that another petition was received in December 2011 that concerned a request to pedestrianise a similar section of Formosa Street in the vicinity of the Castellain Road junction, which then received 232 signatures. So it is acknowledged that there remains an interest from some people to pedestrianise part of Formosa Street.
Movement Strategy - Formosa Street temporary pedestrian spacing scheme
We expect you will remember that during the early spring/summer period of Lockdown conditions a City Council ‘Movement Strategy’ footway widening scheme was temporarily in place on Formosa Street. This consisted of temporary barriers on the north side, some one-way diversion of traffic and some adjustment to the kerbside controls.
The temporary scheme was reviewed in late summer and was removed as it proved to be unnecessary for the purposes of social distancing.
Pedestrianisation call

With regard to the petition’s call for pedestrianisation of a section(s) of Formosa Street this is something the City Council has no plans to implement. It remains the case that this is not supported by all the businesses in this stretch of Formosa Street and is also not supported by many of the residents who live immediately adjacent to this part of Formosa Street.
