As it now is, the exit lane from Pond Square cuts across the entrance to Cobble Mews. see Streetview. Camden Council proposes to normalise the exit by building out the footways on either side of Cobble Mews, so as to reduce the width of the exit lane from Pond Square to a normal width road.
They state that the current alignment makes it difficult for pedestrians to cross Cobble Mews and Pond Square due to the very long crossing distance at this junction. In fact the location must also be a bit tricky for cyclists.
They propose to add a parking space (without taking away another one).
We agree with the proposal to build out the footway. We also agree with the proposal to relocate the lamp column. Please provide cycle parking in the space on the extended pavement. Currently the only cycle parking in Highgate Village is on South Grove (2 stands).
