Further to Question No: 2016/4391:

'TfL have had no stakeholder meetings in Camden Town concerning CS11 even though the proposals have an impact there as well as in Swiss Cottage, as there is an  issue about diversionary traffic heading onto residential streets to the east of Regents Park when Albany Street and Prince Albert Road become the main alternative route to the outer circle for traffic in peak hours (because of the shutting of gates into the park for CS11). These two roads are also affected by HS2 major utility works and are the primary HGV routes for their lorry holding area in the zoo car park, which will then journey to the main site compound and work sites on Hampstead Road, bringing under present plans one HGV every three minutes for ten hours a day on Albany Street for several years.  Will you now arrange for a stakeholder consultation meeting in Camden Town over CS11 as soon as possible?'

Your response being:

'TfL's public consultation on the CS11 proposals included sending out leaflets, emails and notices to stakeholders, visiting businesses and organisations and five public drop-in sessions to give people the opportunity to ask questions about the scheme. Six thousand responses were received, which compares favourably with similar schemes. TfL has also held a number of meetings with local stakeholders to discuss the consultation proposals, including campaign groups from Westminster and Camden, as well as transport and road user groups, representatives from the freight industry, London TravelWatch, cycling campaign groups, pedestrian campaign groups, residents' associations, MPs, local councillors and Assembly Members.

I have asked TfL officers to liaise with you and Camden Town councillors to provide a briefing on progress with this important scheme.'

Some 1,563 consultation leaflets were delivered to residents and businesses in Albany Street and Prince Albert Road, while 2,695 leaflets were delivered to properties on roads in the Camden Town and Primrose Hill Ward.

TfL emailed 150,000 people who live locally or are known to travel through the area. In addition, 600 businesses and organisations near the scheme were sent emails, supplementing contacts from TfL's own database with information provided by the London Borough of Camden and the City of Westminster.
