Six councillors, from all three political parties, and all three wards, answered question for an hour and a half at the public meeting on 4 March at Alleyn’s School. It was well attended and was very useful in briefing residents on how the Council’s current programme impacts on the local area. Subjects ranged from health to education and traffic. There were questions about the future of the East Dulwich Hospital site, the East Dulwich Police Station, and what the Council was doing to address the shortage of primary school places in the area and its attitude to free schools. Concerns were also raised about traffic speeds, problems over parking, and pedestrian safety.
