I would like to talk about "parklets", and our priorities as a country. Bear with me. Currently, if you want to park a πŸš— on a street, you pay, in London, on average, just over Β£3 per week for the right to leave your what is basically your private property on the road. 1/3

But if you want to, as a community, repurpose a parking space, to create mini seating, play or meeting area for the street, you'll be paying a HUNDRED times that much (on average) to your local council. 2/3

It’s been great to feel the support for different ways of imagining street space. But also, so odd to feel the kickback from certain accounts. I mean, my street is a quarter of a mile long and half our pavement space on both sides is taken up by cars. This is not unusual.
