Further to Question No: 2016/4889

Do you agree that a good definition of Consultation might be:

"let people know what they are proposing and why, give them a chance to comment, and conscientiously take into account their responses with an open mind before deciding whether or not to do what was proposed."

That being the case, what was the point of the public consultation on the proposals for the Archway Gyratory scheme, if TfL have decided to ignore what the public say? Of the 818 respondents, 75% disagreed with the proposal. How is this "conscientiously taking into account responses with an open mind before deciding whether or not to do what was proposed"?

Your response being:

'Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly'

Will you now provide a substantive reply?
