The area where I live
What sort of road and broader neighbourhood would you like to live in? Some work will be starting on ideas over the next year. It’ll be focussing on how the appearance, layout and traffic system of a street affects the people who live in that street and the wider area.
We thought summer, when people are out and about a lot more and have their curtains and windows open longer, is a good time to start thinking. To set you thinking here are some ideas. Different people may have very different ideas. Everyone has a right to express their ideas.
