Petition update from the council, 01 December 2015

Dear Mr Lee and signatories to the petition,

With reference to the petition for St Vincent Street to be fully pedestrianised. Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you.

Following a request from the Saint Vincent Catholic Primary School through Westminster’s school travel plan programme, a study was undertaken into the impacts of removing motorised vehicles from the eastern section of St Vincent Street. The study concluded that this proposal was a practical proposition, however comments continued to be received requesting that in view of the proposed redevelopment proposals for the Moxon/Cramer/Aybrook Street site, consideration be given to the restriction being applied to the whole length of St Vincent Street. As a result, a site meeting was held with Councillor Scarborough on 17 August 2015 and it was felt that this is a viable proposition.

Investigations will have to take place to determine the implications of such a proposal and the necessary approvals and consents have still to be applied for and obtained. In addition, a restriction to remove motorised vehicles from the entire length of St Vincent Street will have to be reviewed in respect of the construction programme for the Moxon/Cramer/Aybrook Street redevelopment. This proposal is the funding source for the upgrade of St Vincent Street and so the delivery programme for the redevelopment works will affect the timeframe for implementing any vehicle restriction scheme in St Vincent Street.

We are now progressing a traffic study to investigate the impact of closing all of St Vincent Street and any mitigating measures that would be needed to implement such a scheme. I have asked our Head of Contract Management, Sally Keiller, to keep you updated as to progress on this issue.

Yours sincerely


Stuart Love
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR (CITY MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNITIES)

More details from petition creator

St Vincent Street is narrow and difficult for cars to navigate. The only entrances to St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School are on St Vincent Street. Most of the parents and schoolchildren of St Vincent Primary must traverse St Vincent Street at least twice daily. Vehicles turning on to St Vincent Street from Cramer Street routinely ride up onto the pavement due to the tight angle. This creates a hazardous situation for all pedestrians, but particularly for parents and schoolchildren. The road also serves numerous pedestrians living, working and shopping in the area. The proposed development will further increase foot and vehicle traffic thereby increasing the already very significant risks to safety.
