Mark campaigns to ban coaches from Vauxhall Gardens
For the past couple of years Mark Harrison has been attending meetings of the Vauxhall Gardens Estate Residents’ & Tenants’ Association. One issue that has come up time and time again at meetings is the problem of coaches parking on local streets at the weekend.
On Saturdays and Sundays Vauxhall Walk, Glasshouse Walk, and Tyers Street are lined with coaches - belching fumes, creating noise, blocking light, and obstructing access to the playground and park. Mark commented 'It’s high time the Council takes action and bans the coaches from our streets'.
Mark has already spoken to senior councillors and they agree that residents have a good case. We need to keep the pressure on, and VGETRA (the residents’ association) have started a petition. Mark is helping out by taking the petition around the estate, and writing to local residents with a form that allows them to add their names to the petition.
If you would like to add your name to the petition please email firstname.lastname@example.org
