There is lots happening in Fitzrovia and opportunities for you to have your say on various consultations.


New Traffic Order – changes to traffic direction in Fitzrovia

WCC are seeking comments on a new traffic order. Towards the end, there are detailed plans about proposed changes to Wigmore/Mortimer St and the junctions with Great Portland St and Great Titchfield Street.
Have a look particularly at the proposals for these junctions. Click to see the traffic order here.
Otherwise, there is provision for new loading bays on Mortimer St, reducing the pavement width. Overall, there will be 4 fewer residents parking spaces and four fewer bus stands (in Cavendish Place). There seems to be only one reference to cycle parking – at the western end of Wigmore St.
We have asked for projected figures for traffic movements after implementation on and around Wigmore/Mortimer St and are waiting to hear about that.
Observations and comments on the proposals should be submitted by 4th October 2023 to quoting the reference PCL/9333/AJ in your response.

Proposals for new docking locations for hired bikes

WCC are proposing new docks for all hired bikes in Wells, Newman, Ogle and Bolsover Streets rather than just being left on the pavements.

    We feel there should be more of the resdients bays with electric charging.

    The scooter parkking bays in Langham Street generally have scooters puhsed over in them whichmakes crossing th estreet hazardous. Many of the scooters and are left in the middle of the pavement not in the desiognated bay. Traffic wards should be able to fine the scooter copmpanies and they in turn charge ther users when they park scooters in the wrong location.

    The same applies to random pavement parking of rented cycles.
