Dear Director of Planning and Economic Development,
Re. Planning Application: EPF/1413/18 – Dowding Way Waltham Abbey
While we welcome the proposed investment into public transport, cycling infrastructure and pedestrian facilities we feel that:
- There hasn’t been adequate consultation with user groups to assess and discuss requirements
- The proposed cycling infrastructure provision has been developed independently of the Local Cycling Action Plan rather than in conjunction with it
- Increased traffic, particularly HGVs, will make Epping Forest’s roads less safe for pedestrians and cyclists
As such we ask Epping Forest District Council to reject the planning application.
