A recent press release from Camden Council tells us:
Record response for Torrington Place/Tavistock Place route consultation
In total the council received over 15,000 responses, which included 1,387 residents, the highest number ever for a Camden council consultation. 78% of the total were in favour of making the trial street layout permanent, 21% not in favour and 1% had no opinion. Of residents, 61% were in favour, 38% were not in favour and 1% had no opinion.

Camden also says:
Following a full analysis of the consultation results the scheme will be taken through the democratic decision making process. The consultation responses, consideration of alternative proposals for aspects of the schemes and other information including but not limited to air quality, traffic counts and road safety, will be used to inform the Council’s final decision on the scheme. It is anticipated that a decision will be made by the Council’s Cabinet in early 2017. Until a decision is made the current trial road layout will remain in place.
Thanks to those who supported us
We would like to thank the following people:
- Phil Jones and the team of officers who had the courage to set up the trial and the vision to produce a high quality proposal
- the Bloomsbury and Kings Cross Ward councillors who stood firm during the trial and consultation period
- the leaders of the local universities, charities and businesses who expressed their strong support during the trial through the SaferBloomsbury Campaign.
- the TaviPlace local group of LCC members who wrote to councillors and the CNJ as well as doing extensive leafletting and attending meetings
- the large gang of leafletters who were out in #TaviPlace mornings and evenings over a five week period.
- John Hartley and Richenda Walford who organised the local activity and did their best to engage with some of the local opposition
- and to everyone who took the trouble to respond to the consultation.
