Have your say on how we can improve the Annette Road area for all


Our public engagement on the Annette Road Liveable Neighbourhood will run from Monday, 8 July to Sunday, 18 August 2024


As part of our efforts to create a cleaner, greener, and healthier borough we want to create a liveable neighbourhood in the Annette Road area.

The liveable neighbourhood will create pleasant and animated streets, where communities can come together to spend time with their neighbours, support local shops and children can play and travel safely (read more about liveable neighbourhoods here).

With more greening including plants and trees, seating for neighbours and reduced traffic volumes, the liveable neighbourhood will transform streets across the scheme area.

On this page you can find out how you can give us your ideas for improving streets and public spaces in the area, by:

We are listening to feedback from local people and groups, and we are looking to prioritise the following improvements:

  • creating safe streets for children to travel to school and areas for play
  • reducing through-traffic, reducing road danger and improving air quality
  • supporting local businesses to thrive

The liveable neighbourhood will also work to:

  • create greener and more pleasant streets
  • make it easier and safer to walk, wheel and cycle
  • bring the community together

We are engaging with the community to get your input into the design phase. Please click this link to view our interactive map tool (also found in the tabs at the bottom of this page) to provide us with your comments and ideas for location-specific street improvements and improved public realm that we might make as part of this scheme.

We will collate your responses and they will inform the process of preparing final designs. We will then hold a formal public consultation before we implement any changes.


Some initial ideas for the Annette Road Liveable Neighbourhood

We have received feedback from local residents on the area, and have conducted our own monitoring of traffic in and around the area, and we've started work on some ideas for potential improvements which could be made. In addition to seeking your comments about the area more generally using the interactive map tool, we are also seeking your feedback on these initial ideas to give us an indication of the type of improvement you would like to see in the area. Read on for more information.

You have told us that:

  • you would like to see pavements improved with more space created for people walking, wheeling and with buggies and mobility aids
  • you want to see more pleasant, green public spaces and more places to stop and rest
  • streets should be made safer with slower traffic and fewer vehicles
  • it should be easier for people cycling in the area

Taking the above as a starting point, some measures to create a greener, healthier, more welcoming area could include:
