Public Spaces Protection Order in Peterborough

news briefing

This is the latest public domain news on this topic which could be of interest to people involved in any or all of the following campaigns (all of which I support and would be happy to speak on to community or campaign groups, and residents associations)

  • getting rid of PSPO legislation entirely
  • getting rid of #BridgeStreetBan on Bridge Street (illustrated) so that cyclists can decide for themselves whether or not to dismount (yes it certainly does require cycle training) #Sustrans #bikeability
  • introducing 20mph speed limits, nicely, with community engagement  without bumps #20sPlenty
  • securing a useable cycle route through Peterborough city centre where the perfectly obvious place has been cluttered up with street furniture – this requires a strategic decision on whether or not cyclists should be diverted away from the shops in a city or calmed down (speed and manners) and invited into a welcoming retail space
