Representation Summary:

London Road should not be pedestrianised. The taxi rank should not be moved further away from its current position. It is already quite a distance for elderly and disabled people to walk from the shops to the taxi rank. People visiting the cinema also need the taxi nearby. At night it could cause dangerous situations if people have to walk further to the taxi rank. I would even suggest a bus route to that area, certainly not a pedestrian area. There are many banks in that area where many elderly people need to go, and for safety reasons need taxis close by for their transport requirements. Also more disabled parking to be in that area. If you pedestrianise it you take away access for disabled people to get to their Banks.
If you put tables and chairs in a pedestrian area in London Road this will be a nightmare for blind and partially sighted people to walk in this area.

Representation Summary:

Throughout the document there are references to pedestrian and cycling routes. Cycling routes should be built on road space and not on pavements. At no time should pedestrians have to share with cyclists. It is too dangerous and will prevent many people who are blind and partially sighted from walking out safely. Cycling should not be allowed in the high street or any other pedestrian area.

Representation Summary:

The Forum is not accessible for many elderly people like it was when it was in Victoria avenue. It is not on a bus route and it is a long walk for many people to reach it from a bus stop. There should be taxi ranks and parking for disabled people next to the forum.
