GRAVE CONCERNS: Deputy prime minister visits Bushey charity to speak with residents

 Published on: 14th September 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden MP visited residents housed by the Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD) charity in Bushey last week to discuss their concerns.

The charity runs seven sites of specially adapted mobility apartments which provide independent living and support.

Bushey councillor Seamus Quilty joined Mr Dowden MP at the JBD’s Cecil Rosen Court site on September 8.

The pair sat down with around 40 residents who highlighted their grave concerns when crossing the High Road as they leave Perrin Close due to the speed of cars in both directions.

Mr Dowden said: “It was good to meet with residents alongside cllr Seamus Quilty at Cecil Rosen Court and to hear some of their concerns about the speed of cars on the High Road.

“Residents expressed the need for double yellow lines outside Perrin Close, the implementation of a 20mph zone and an island crossing being brought closer to Perrin Close. I have therefore written to the Highways Department at Hertfordshire County Council to highlight their concerns and will update residents when I receive a response.”

A spokesperson for the charity said: “We’re very grateful to for their time and enthusiasm today.”
