The statutory consultation for the Fox Lane low-traffic neighbourhood trial is now under way and comments can be submitted online or by post. People can comment more than once. The trial is initially due to last for six months, but if modified might be prolonged. On the other hand, it could be stopped before six months is up, as has occurred in some other boroughs. The council has made it clear that - despite claims to the contrary on social media - the emergency services have not objected, but if they do raise any issues during the trial the scheme will be suitably modified.
