The aims of OneChiswick

OneChiswick wants Healthier and Safer Streets for ALL

and has come together to represent the clear majority of the people of Chiswick.

We are working together to reverse these changes and stop more of them happening.

We are co-ordinating the response to this undemocratic process:

  • Creating petitions against the changes and campaigns in local media
  • Encouraging people to lobby Councillors and people of influence to express their opposition and provide alternatives
  • Mounting public protests if and when we are allowed to do so
  • Legally challenging decisions when we can:
    • We legally challenged the decision to put in C9, the temporary pop-up bi-directional cycle lane on Chiswick High Road, but in July LBH/TFL announced a new scheme – ETO2021 – which incorporated a number of changes we have been campaigning for. We therefore withdrew the JR.
    • We intend to put other LTNs to legal review when we have the opportunity
    • We will put the case to reverse the changes that have already taken place, if that is what the people of Chiswick want
  • Raise funds to fight Hounslow Council and TfL in the courts for as long as necessary

This is a challenge, and it is going to be a long haul. It is, however, essential if we are going to have a chance to reverse the changes and save Chiswick and its community.

We are one of a number of local organisations around the UK who are taking our cases to the High Court. In London, the boroughs of Ealing, Hackney, Islington and Lambeth also pursued challenges.
