The Royal Parks in London have set out a long term-vision for improving the experience of park users, the vast majority of whom are walkers. They are currently consulting on this vision and have invited comments from the public and interested organisations.
As part of their new vision, they are conducting five trial projects that are testing ways to reduce the amount of cut-through traffic in the parks. They are seeking the public’s views on these trials.
The trials are underway in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Bushy Park, St. James’s Park and the Green Park, Greenwich Park, and Richmond Park. At the end of the trial the Royal Parks will assess the impact of these trials and decide whether to make these changes permanent.
The consultation ends on January 10th.
