Occupied Walthamstow

This year the council belatedly installed the first four cycle stands in Walthamstow village, on Orford Road, by the popular pubs and restaurants (or five if you count the one marooned on the patch of ground opposite St Mary's church, which I have never seen anyone use, presumably because it isn't close to anything and is also ideal for bike thieves).

On Orford Road there are more parking bays than cycle stands, and council policies continue to promote the occupation of the borough's streets and pavements by the shock troops of the fossil fuel army.

Waltham Forest - committed to encouraging car dependency to new and even bigger levels
