Our meeting to discuss and define one ask per ward for the Space for Cycling campaign is on Monday 17th February upstairs in local pub, Blue Anchor at 13, Lower Mall, Hammersmith, W6 9DJ from 6:30PM, starting just after 7PM.
Ahead of the meeting, and after our earlier summary we now have a new, more colourful and comprehensive map of responses to our survey. We will add to this with a detailed tabular list of all asks in each ward and submitted suggestions ahead of the meeting. Naturally any extra asks are still welcome in comments here or at the meeting itself. If you can’t make the meeting comment below or send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org – Thanks!
We’d encourage everyone to explore the asks by reading over our summary and looking at the map ahead of the meeting. We will be working from printouts on the night but will have a computer or two should we need to refer to any data in detail. Our aim is to pick one theme per ward and a simple, clear idea of the aim to achieve with it. We can combine multiple ideas into a single ask, which will be particularly necessary in wards like Hammersmith Broadway.
Load the map in a new window or tab by clicking here then read our quick guide:
You can switch between a cycle base map or a minimal black and white map. You can also turn layers for each of the asks on and off on the map, along with the ward boundaries using the control top-right, it is collapse by default and expands when highlighted.
Clicking on a coloured section of road explains the ask, says how many supported it and confirms the road name.
Clicking anywhere else inside a ward will confirm the name of the ward.
We will split the agenda and the borough into three distinct sections. Each of these are a combination of wards, to enable us to discuss the themes, and how they might best be applied in a coherent area. We may change the order in a cluster as we progress but should stick to the otherwise.
These ward groups are from the north of the borough to the south with each a cluster of wards around the three major town centres of the borough – Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham.

20mph – One person suggested 20mph throughout the SW6 postcode. We’ve mapped what this would mean, and it clearly leads to the question of a borough wide limit. There are rather more 20mph zones in the north of the borough, though no coherent map of current 20mph roads exists (that we’ve found). SW6 covers roads in all of the following wards.
Fulham Reach Ward
Protected Space on Main Roads – Fulham Palace Road, exit of St Dunstan’s Road

North End Ward
Protected space on main roads – Junction of Gliddon Road and A4.

20mph speed limits – Gowan Avenue, Bishops Road, Wardo Avenue
Protected space on main roads – New King’s Road (tough noted as busy and narrow)
