  1. No reply from the LI team, perhaps they too struggle to find it/be notified?! Might we be better giving up and creating closed/moderated LinkedIn groups? @Abi Palmer-Greenwood @Paul Lincoln @Louis Varley @Yvonne Matthews @Ahlyah Ali
  2. Thanks Graham, Yes there is a TRO, but it is a NCN route, so we do expect cyclists to need to negotiate the route. We suggested both reflective paint, and applying some sort of 'attached reflectors', but unfortunately the traffic engineers said 'we don’t think either of the options are appropriate in the adopted highway in this situation on their own. Drivers need a certain level of consistency in order to identify hazards and these might possibly just confuse drivers'.
  3. Hi all, Hoping someone might have knowledge of a precedent they can direct me to? We've been involved in a project to formalise a road closure, on a minor road which has been temporarily closed using large concrete blocks (and no bollards) for over a year. We have sourced large blocks of local stone, which have been placed in the road to act as a barrier. The highways team are now nervous that somebody will drive into them in the dark, and are insisting that we should put bollards in front of them as well, which we're not keen on because the intention was to try and reduce clutter and have a more attractive 'road closure'. They are rejecting suggestions that we could use reflective paint on the stones e.g. https://glowtec.co.uk/reflective-paint/ I'm hoping if we can point to a precedent where something similar has been done it might help to convince them, but nothing springing to mind - does anyone know of such an intervention please?
  4. Hello, trying to find LI connect forum, having had a mind blank and temporarily forgotten its name, was nigh-on impossible. Hard to expect members to engage with it if it's so poorly advertised. I had expected it to be available via a link on the LI homepage, and certainly on my member page once I'd logged in, and on LI Campus, and in the Vista email somewhere, but I couldn't see a link to it anywhere, and had to remember its name and then find an old LI Connect email to follow the link. Please advertise it better to members, and provide links from the websites where one would expect to find it?

  8. Hi all, I've added this as 'an event', but not sure yet how best to use this forum and who gets notified of what, so thought I'd post here too, I think p2c students might get a lot out of it... Join NFM Charity Slow The Flow on Wednesday 17th August 6-9pm for an informative evening with experts on Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). Guest speakers will showcase inspirational landscape from our region and abroad, as well as give updates on plans and support for SuDS available locally. There will be a Q+A session, where you can bring your questions for the panel. We’ll also have drinks and nibbles, networking, a chance to look at the exhibition, and will be handing out the fabulous prizes for our quiz, to celebrate the fantastic summer we’ve had with our touring roadshow! Please get a FREE eventbrite ticket at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/slowing-the-flow-in-towns-tickets-386984379697?aff=ebdsoporgprofile, so that we can get catering numbers right. And of course please share with anyone you think might be interested!
  9. Hi Antonella, as noted elsewhere, making it easier to 'follow' the forum and be notified of new content should improve engagement? I had tried to follow all discussions, but have not been notified of this post, for example.
  10. Hello, I've only just spotted this discussion, because 'Connect' isn't easy to follow threads on. It's annoying in the same way that TL used to be, you can't easily just follow everything, and if new topics are added it doesn't notify you, so you have to find out they're there in order to follow... It would be very helpful to have a 'follow all new discussions' button. It would also be good to advertise this forum better e.g. in Vista - maybe note 'recent discussions' etc to encourage more participation?

  14. Thanks Graham - have you tried parking in one, is this a comfortable length? And does the width feel over generous, given that in the 'kerbside' situation there are no parked cars either side, or do you feel 2.4m width is necessary?
  15. Thanks Michael - yes I saw this too and was impressed by it. I am a trustee at Slow The Flow and have sent on to our education trustees to see if we can do something similar! STF is soon to launch a curriculum-aligned set of materials to do with NFM for our local schools in Calderdale - if that's a success we will look into rolling out for wider use, I'll post here if that happens. In the meantime, a lot of the info on our website is accessible, engaging, and freely downloadable (with credit please). Flooding / NFM and SuDS specific, rather than climate change generally though: https://slowtheflow.net/introduction-to-natural-flood-management/, https://slowtheflow.net/you-can-slow-the-flow/
