The shop keepers at The Blue are collecting signatures.
They are just FED UP with the way the council are issuing parking fines.
The council are sucking money out of car users, and the businesses are suffering.
We spent thousands of pound trying to make the Blue a nice place to shop,
Now the Labour council are making it a no-go zone.
Please sign up if you are in the shops down The Blue

Private parking control – Bushwood Drive – Are ‘LPC Parking Solutions’ threatening to clamp cars on the public highway?
Seems like an enthusiastic Car clamping company wants to start clamping vehicles on a public road:
Residents in Bushwood Drive have contacted me to point out that LPC Parking Solutions are threatening to clamp vehicles in Bushwood Drive, despite the fact it is a public road.
The law is changing to outlaw both ‘cowboy’ firms, and reputable firms. ( I’m sure LPC Parking solutions are reputable).
Maybe this is a last attempt by LPC Parking Solutions to ‘nick a few quid’ before the government outlaws clamping on private land.
Meanwhile I will be asking Southwark’s Highway Department to confirm that LPC Parking Solutions are made aware of the boundaries of private realm, and public highway.
As always, please get in touch if you feel you may have been clamped by LPC Parking Solutions in error.

I’ve been getting loads of complaints form local people about these supermarket cages outside 186 Southwark Park Road.
I’ve asked the manager of the shop to move them, and I’ve asked council officers to have them moved.
<- Wednesday …….. Thursday->
I wonder who will move them first, the manager, or council staff?

It would be wrong for me to try to influence the responses to the consultation about introducing a CPZ here in South Bermondsey.
There is a strong campaign against the introduction, including the posting of notices on some lamp posts around the ward.
Of course I don’t condone fly posting, but there seems to be little support for the introduction of the scheme.
I’m looking forward to the end of the consultation period, when I can start voicing my views on the proposals.

Not sure how cycle friendly the changes are going to be. I’ve asked for a briefing from officers about the final plans. My bike is pictured centre.
