Oh dear, it would appear that some septic tank has performed a study on Lewes and placed her research on a webpage.....

Am I alone in feeling that to create a seated area around the War Memorial would be disrespectful?

Have a look at the website - it looks as if cars sharing the road with pedestrians is all the rage!

"applies urban design theories of morphology and shared space principles to tackle the dominance of traffic in the historic centre of the town without the banning of cars" - oh please, pseuds corner or what?

Is it just me or does she just want to make the roads smaller so that only onle lane of traffic can get though, and make them all brick paved!
She needs to understand that yes it may work in the Netherlands, but Lewes isn't in the Netherlands and the British have totally different attitudes to the Dutch. SEE HAS ALSO FAILED TO SEE THAT SNEEK, NETHERLANDS HAS BYPASSES CIRULATING IT SO THE ONLY TRAFFIC ENTERING SNEEK IS TRADE NOT JUST PASSING THOUGH ON ROUTE TO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
A public square at the top of station steet, yes that'll work well at 5 pm with all the traffic trying to get through the town.
I look forward to maiming several pedestians sat round the war memorial soon! Maybe then we can have a new memorail and put all the people names on it who are now disabled due to sitting on the war memorial. Ialso find the idea of people sat on the war memorial very disrespectful.

Would you sit on a gravestone! This is very disrespectful.
Also Lewes does have an Elm Grove instead Elm Street.

And she says cars slow down due to the shared space at Cliffe bridge.
Nothing to do with the 2 overly severe humps and the sharp bend then!!

Was she paid to perform this study? If so, who funded it (I hope it wasn't the tax payers of Lewes)?
Do you think she was born with the name Carlotta or do you thin she changed to market her research?
