Public consultation

The public consultation for the Lea Bridge Road scheme closed on 2 December 2015.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation on our plans for Lea Bridge Road. We had a fantastic response with 956 people commenting on the scheme. Lots more people viewed the plans online, at our information stand and at our public drop-in sessions.

In total we received just under 3,500 individual comments so we are now carefully analysing this feedback to be considered as part of our final designs.

To help us manage the consultation for Lea Bridge Road efficiently the road was sectioned into six areas so that people could have their say on the parts of the scheme that are taking place where they live or work.
