Streetspace Feedback 2021

Closed 18 Jun 2021

Opened 2 Feb 2021

Results updated 8 Nov 2021

The Hounslow Streetspace programme saw a range of traffic management measures introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at improved safety and social distancing for those making trips on foot or bike. These aims also support long-term council goals such as improving air quality, making our road network as safe as possible and prioritizing active travel.

A consultation on the initial measures introduced during summer 2020 closed in January 2021. This subsequent consultation ran between February – June 2021 and attracted 1259 responses and we are grateful to residents and businesses for all the feedback received.

The council commissioned the consultancy practice Steer to collect and review a range of data sources to understand what effect the schemes had on travel patterns and to analyze the consultation feedback. Their findings have been used to inform the council’s decision making process, and the consultation analysis reports for each measure are now available on our website along with the Traffic analysis and decision paperwork.

After careful consideration of the independent review analysis reports, the Chief Officer Decision on the measures introduced as part of our Streetspace programme, was published on our website in August 2021, confirming that the majority of measures introduced are to be made permanent.

This decision was also given further consideration at the council’s Overview and Scrutiny committee, and again at the council’s Cabinet meeting on 19 October 2021 (see Item 10).

Overview

The Hounslow Streetspace programme saw a wide range of traffic management measures introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The measures are intended to improve safety and social distancing for those making trips on foot or bike. This also helps keep roads clear of traffic for those that have less of an alternative to travelling by car.

While Streetspace was developed in response to the pandemic, it supports long-term council goals such as improving air quality, making our road network as safe as possible and prioritising active travel.

The consultation on the initial measures introduced during summer 2020 – listed below - closed at the end of January. We will publish independent Interim Reviews of these trials in February 2021 on our Streetspace webpage, where you can already find full details of the Streetspace programme and the review process.

Measures for which the consultation has now closed (access restrictions unless otherwise stated) are as follows:

  • Amhurst Gardens / Teesdale Avenue / Teesdale Gardens
  • Bus Lane hour extensions – various locations
  • Dan Mason Drive
  • Devonshire Road
  • Duke Road / Dukes Avenue
  • Fisher’s Lane

This feedback will be considered alongside other data, including road safety, air quality, and traffic data, in determining the future of the proposals. We are also keen to know if you think we should consider making any trials permanent.
