London Borough of Sutton Transport Planning and Network Development officers invited representatives from residents associations, churches, schools, local businesses, police, cycling and walking groups to take part in a community street audit of Sutton High Street between Angel Hill and Crown Road on 23 June 2009. This event was organised as a precursor to an informal public consultation in preparation for the implementation of a safety scheme in the area, due for completion by March 2010.

In July 2009, Sutton Living Streets produced a note outlying many of the issues raised during the audit. This document can be downloaded from the following link (4MB PDF):

Responses to this consultation must be received by Friday 14th March. As part of London Living Streets’ Green Man Campaign we support this proposal to give pedestrians greater priority while crossing this important junction.

From the consultation document:

Transport for London (TfL) is holding a consultation exercise to receive residents and key Stakeholders’ comments regarding pedestrian improvements at Windsor Castle Junction. As part of our work to promote walking by delivering better conditions for pedestrians in London we are planning to upgrade facilities for pedestrians at the junction. There are a number of schools in the area and the current amenities do not allow pedestrians to cross safely on all arms of the junction. It is anticipated that by providing safer crossings we can encourage more people to use alternatives to their cars.
