Convenor: Brian Holder email
The Group actively liaises with the Council and public transport providers to ensure that all residents and visitors, including anyone with a disability, travelling as pedestrian, cyclist, bus or train passenger, motorcyclists or driver, can travel safely through Teddington with the minimum of delay. Our activities have had a huge impact on Teddington, and a taste of some of our past achievements can be seen here.
We aim to ensure that Council officers consult us whenever transport plans or parking schemes which affect Teddington are proposed, and we seek to ensure that the Councillors and officers are aware of our safety, transport, and parking policies. Where appropriate we will formally advise them of the Society’s views and/or recommendations during consultations over specific issues.
As well as consulting residents directly affected by any particular proposed scheme or change, the Group’s long-standing policies are based on two officially sponsored Reports:
1. The Teddington Town Centre Improvements Study – Residents’ Parking Report (which touches on many linked issues)
2. The Borough’s Discussion Document on principles of public consultation, and development and design of transport schemes.
Transport Consultative Group Forum
Members can make their views known to the Group by emailing Brian Holder, and can keep up to date by joining his consultation and information circulation list. See also the Roads and Transport news .
The more members we have, the stronger our voice and the more influence we can exert. We campaign on issues which would adversely affect the town and support initiatives that will be of benefit. Make your opinion known through us. There’s strength in numbers so the more members the merrier.
