Petition: Keep Bedford Place pedestrianised

2,600 of 2,750 signatures

The Coronavirus Pandemic has been a difficult time, but one of the best things to come out of is a greater appreciation of our shared spaces. Pedestrianisation, like in Bedford Place, has produced vibrant local spaces for our community and allows local businesses in these areas to grow and thrive.

Now Southampton Conservatives have gained control of the council, this popular scheme is under threat.

Lib Dem campaigner Josh Smith says: "Southampton Liberal Democrats believe that the council should be protecting and improving these community spaces, not removing them. If you agree please sign our petition opposing these changes."

We the undersigned call on Southampton City Council to keep Bedford Place pedestrianised.
