Petition information

The petitioning periods in both Houses of Parliament have now closed, and there will be no further opportunities to petition against this Bill.

The Bill was opposed in both Houses. In the House of Commons, four petitions against the Bill were lodged. In the House of Lords, three petitions were presented, one of which was subsequently withdrawn.

Summary of the Bill

The Bill (as introduced) empowers London boroughs and Transport for London (TfL) to:

  • recover the cost of repairing any damage caused to footpaths or roads by building work being carried out on an adjacent site
  • take more effective enforcement action on builders’ skips that are not properly lit and covered when placed on paths or roads
  • require any objects placed on pavements or roads to be removed and disposed of to ensure the good management of the highway
  • recover from the organisers of large scale public events, like football matches or concerts, the cost of any additional traffic management and street cleaning needed as a result of those events
  • enforce road traffic regulations effectively against owners of pedicabs or cycle rickshaws
  • establish stiffer penalties for cyclists who put pedestrians at risk by riding on footpaths
  • issue penalties to motorists encroaching into the special advanced stopping boxes set aside for cyclists at busy junctions
