Phase 1 - Covid-19 Temporary Highway Schemes Batch 1 Including Permeable Filter at the Dulwich Village Junction and Melbourne/Tell Grove
The Dulwich Society has reviewed the Council's recently published report on its plans for the implementation of temporary emergency measures in Dulwich Village and Melbourne Grove and is supportive of them as a means to improve social distancing to directly mitigate Covid-19. These are part of a Southwark-wide programme financed by public funding, and part of a national response to the Covid-19 pandemic which can be found on this link:
We also note that the proposals reflect much of what has recently been consulted on in the Council’s ‘Healthy Streets Initiative’ and that the measures proposed could have a beneficial impact on promoting active travel and reducing air pollution.
There may be unintended consequences and some areas will be positively or adversely affected more than others. It is essential that the measures are seen as being flexible and easily reversible and/or extendable if need be, and that the Council responds positively to residents' experiences of the schemes in operation. The Dulwich Society expects the full impact on the surrounding area will be properly evaluated and that the changes should not, at the end of the period, de facto stay unaltered or unimproved as a permanent change without a full public consultation.
Phase 2 - Covid-19 - Post Lockdown Highway Schemes Batch 2 Including Permeable Filters at Melbourne Grove, Derwent Grove and Elsie Road
Given the apparent diversity of views among its membership, it would be inappropriate for the Dulwich Society to take a position either for or against the proposed Phase 2 traffic amendments.
Phase 3 - Covid-19 - Post Lockdown Highway Schemes Batch 3 Including Timed Cameras and Bus Gates at Dulwich Village, Burbage Road & Turney Road, Townley Road, Plus Double Yellow Lines in Dulwich Village
Given the apparent diversity of views among its membership, it would be inappropriate for the Dulwich Society to take a position either for or against the proposed Phase 3 traffic amendments. http://moderngov.southwark.gov.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=7153
