This afternoon I learnt that there is going to be an experimental traffic order to block through motor traffic on Franche Court Road in Earlsfield.
Delighted for residents on Franche Court Road. Even more interested to find out what was key to get @Wandbc to act here. https://t.co/QBvrF4qJzT— Jon Irwin #FBPE (@JonIrwinLD) January 29, 2018
At the end of 2016, in light of my previous efforts for Smallswood road / Fountain Road and other petitions in the run up to the 2014 local elections, residents on Franche Court road sought my advice.
Thanks to their hard work, supportive councillors and hopefully a bit of my advice, they have achieved this outcome. Apparently 10 years of other residents petitioning hadn't delivered any change. Sounds remarkably familiar to other streets in the borough.
On that note, I've also got some news about how we can hopefully accelerate positive change. I've been selected as a candidate for the Liberal Democrats again in this year's local elections.
Do get in touch if you'd like to help out. More details etc will be up on the Wandsworth Liberal Democrats website - http://www.wandsworthlibdems.org.uk
