Talk the walk

I blogged about our MP's new YouTube site when he launched it, and have this week noted a new video about the pedestrianising of Farnham.

It's a very pertinent time for his comments, coming in the weeks leading up to the planning decision that's due on the latest East Street application. He points out the aspiration for pedestrianisation, but countered by the reality of traffic management, (not least right now, even prior to any increase due to extra homes and shopping!)

I'm completely in support of both an analysis, and a trial of redirection and pedestrianisation. This idea was referred to by a question from a member of the public early into the council meeting on 22nd April, and whilst I would have written parts of the letter differently, it nonetheless clearly highlighted this as a concern.
