I am definitely in favour of expansion of bus routes and services, there is no doubt about that at all. Sometimes the type of service that is provided causes intense problems for some people in a small area. I know it's not a great strategic issue but for the people who live next to it, it can be absolute hell. All we're asking is that TfL should think carefully about what palliative measures they can offer. It might be a smaller bus; it might be changes to the hours; it might be local parking controls; but they cannot walk away from the people who have lost out in a consultation. That's the plea.

The reality is that the bit of road outside your house is not owned exclusively by you for your parking; it is the property of all London and all Londoners' needs have to be weighed in the balance.
