Mini Holland Update

Stop Mini Holland

For anyone who lives in Markhouse Ward, the next Community Ward Forum will be on Thursday 27 November from 7pm at Edinburgh School, Queens Road. It will feature a discussion on mini-Holland plans for the area.

Markhouse Ward Forum Meeting

Summary of Mini Holland so far:

Walthamstow Village

Ruckholt Road   Ruckholt Road Plans

Peterborough Road

Blackhorse Road

Selbourne Road

Whipps Cross Road Roundabout - officers in discussion with the City of London about improved access to Epping Forest.

Lea Bridge Road - see report from the Transport Liaison Committee:

I attended the WF Transport Liaison Group yesterday. I took the opportunity to raise the issue about the 18-month delay in the re-opening of the Lea Bridge station while Cllr Clyde Loakes (he lately of the NE London Waste Authority - defender of the Veolia contract) was present. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, he also turns out to be the worst advocate for the TfL-funded Mini Holland cycle development in WF even though he is leading it - he resisted listening and taking on board quite reasonable comments and questions about the trials from residents during the meeting and became vitriolic with indiscriminate criticism and using unnecessarily emotive language, I thought.
