Is It Time For The ‘C’ Word?
Following on from this morning’s post about the proposed pedestrianisation of Greenwich, Fat Cat has suggested it could be time to introduce a local congestion charge.
It’s been mooted in the past, with mixed reactions. Certainly I don’t think it would work if it just joined up with the central London one, but it might be an interesting thing if it were genuinely local.
I’m not sure that we’d ever get away with residents being entirely exempt, but presumably a similar discount to the London scheme would be possible, perhaps with a slightly lower discount for residents in the immediately surrounding towns.
What do we think about this? Maybe it is time to at least talk about such a concept. In the meanwhile, let’s have a quick yea-or-nay straw poll.
