We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

We asked for your views on the proposed restoration of the Grade 2 listed East Lodge building at Nunhead Cemetery, as well as additional facilities and activities you would like to be made available there in the future.

You said

You showed great support to the project and gave us lots of feedback on how you value the site at the moment and how it could be improved through the provision of facilities and a programme of activities.

The consultation results can be viewed here.

We did

We submitted a funding application in order to develop the project further and to eventually deliver it.

Should the application be successful, the development phase is expected to start in Autumn 2022 and will involve some in-depth public engagement activities throughout 2023.

All the ideas collected through the survey will inform the interpretation strategy and activity plan.

We asked

We asked local residents and businesses for their views on proposals to pilot a street market on Melbourne Grove, near the junction with Grove Vale.

You said

The majority of respondents supported the idea of a market. Local residents raised concerns about the potential for litter, smells from hot food, and additional parking pressures.

We did

* Please note - the market will not now be going ahead on 10th September as planned *

We are proceeding with a trial market between 10th September and 31st December 2022. This will run between 10am and 4pm each Saturday, and consist of no more than 12 stalls.

We plan to try a number of different operators, so we can see what best meets the needs of the local community. We do not plan to include any hot food stalls. The market operators and vendors will be expected to keep the area clean and keep any disturbance to a minimum. We are in discussion with the operators and council parking managers about managing parking pressures.

The trial will be reviewed in late 2022 before any decision on a permanent market.

We asked

We asked whether residents in the existing ‘Zone T’ parking zone and an extended area bounded by Old Kent Road, Meeting House Lane and Sumner Road, wished to see parking controls implemented.

You said

The majority of respondents stated a preference for parking controls, and noted that they experienced considerable parking pressure. The majority also wanted this to operate Monday-Friday during the day.

We did

We made a recommendation to the decision maker to proceed with an extended parking zone, to operate Monday-Friday 8am-6.30pm. This has been agreed, subject to statutory consultation over winter 2022, will be implemented in Summer 2023.
