  • Share I don’t think it’s professional listening to people’s opinions as they are not knowledgeable people: I don’t think they are architects or garden designers. It should be a real professional to solve issues. What if in 5 years time neighbours change let’s say from Italian (with their way to live) to American? Are we going to change projects than? This demonstrates how ridiculous you act. Just a real professional whit good taste will suffice. Also if you do claim to be eco friendly and plans a daily wastage of water from the new river walk that is nonsense. If you claim to involve conservation organisation and alter and destroy the shape of a “river” you are not conserving: just destroying.

    Hello Rosario,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We believe Islington's residents know their streets better than anyone and we want to work with them to shape a more equal future. Decisions are typically taken based on both resident feedback, and monitoring and insights from expert council officers.

  • Share I like this relatively new trend of boroughs launching online consultations. When the questions are well laid out, offering predefined responses and the sites are accompanied with before-and-after illustrations these tools offer a powerful source of refining feedback for councils. Carry on making these consultations! The only issue I have seen in this Let's Talk Islington site is that some of the consultations are a little bit too low level, too small. For example, the consultations about ‘Popham Road Double Yellow Lines’ or ‘Transforming Elia Mews and Widford House Open Spaces’ are kind of too specific, perhaps not enough relevant to make a public consultation. In these cases I would just trust council services to make the best decision. Not really a big deal this thing, as long as big, more relevant consultations are well advertised and made better visible, according to their importance. on Facebook Share I like this relatively new trend of boroughs launching online consultations.
