“Dear Murad Re: Petitions received at the London Assembly (Plenary) Meeting on 9 October 2013 Thank you for the petition presented to the London Assemble on 9 October. I apologise for the delay, but I asked Transport for London (TfL) to consider the matter thoroughly before responding to you. As you will be aware, the London Borough of Bromley undertook a consultation for the North Village scheme last year, as I understand it, with broadly positive results. However, because Bromley’s scheme requires significant changes to the bus network, TfL undertook a further consultation specifically on the scheme’s impact on local buses last year. I understand that you would like TfL to attend a community-led planning meeting to discuss the scheme further, and I have therefore asked TfL to get in touch with you to discuss the most appropriate way forward, in tandem with the London Borough of Bromley Thank you again for writing to me.”
