In April 2003 there was an exchange of correspondence between TfL and Clapham South Neighbourhood Assn. Since that time the residents have not been briefed on the progress of the highway aspects of the scheme being discussed between TfL and Tesco's consultants.
As you may be aware the whole development is the subject of considerable and long standing conflict between the community and Tescos. However, at this stage the residents are concerned with the traffic impact of the scheme which is going ahead, and that the design of the access to the store and adjacent junctions should function with maximum safety. The residents' concerns were sent to TfL earlier in detail.
It would be of enormous benefit to the community to know that TfL are working to make the best of a very bad situation in relation to this development; and for TfL colleagues to brief the residents about the negotiation. They need to know what is being planned in the road layout, access and junction design and how this will protect the public interest and minimise risk to pedestrians and drivers near this development.
Will you agree that TfL Officers should meet with residents to discuss their concerns ? .
