Our current traffic management proposals are very different from the Streetspace for London scheme that was trialled in Summer 2020, see below:
We are proposing timed restrictions for motor vehicles to ensure businesses can continue to receive deliveries and collections during the day on weekdays. The timed closures will provide a safer environment for pedestrians during evenings and weekends.
We are proposing some sections of Brick Lane stay open at all times for access requirements. These are:
To ensure that large vehicles are able to leave Brick Lane during the hours of operation of the timed closures, three parking spaces at the junction within Chicksand Street will need to be relocated in the surrounding area.
The proposed timed closures will create safer public spaces for the community by limiting vehicle movements during evenings and weekends, when Brick Lane is at its busiest.
These public space changes will help enhance the area for pedestrians, encouraging more visitors to local businesses.
Parking, deliveries and access
During the hours of operation of the timed closures, parking located within the public spaces will not be allowed. This includes 17 pay and display bays and 9 loading bays.
Further parking changes will be required during the hours of operation of the timed closures on:
There will be no changes to the loading and business bays on the side streets next to Brick Lane. Businesses access to load and receive deliveries on these streets will remain during the timed closures hours of operation.
The timed closures will be monitored by Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, which will restrict vehicle movements but still allow access for emergency services during hours of operation. We will continue to work closely with the emergency services to make Brick Lane an even safer place to live, work and visit.
If the traffic management proposals for evening closures is supported, further discussion will take place with local residents and businesses whether they are still preferred in winter time, when the benefits of facilitating outdoor dining are much smaller.
