We Asked

We asked Walworth residents to give us their ideas for the new Library and Heritage Centre

You Said

You provided a huge range of ideas and suggestions, which you can read in the report here.

But our No.1 message to take away is:

We have a big place in our hearts and minds for libraries and museums and the role they play in communities. We are excited by the opportunities this new facility brings to Southwark and Walworth.

We Did

All the ideas you provided will be shared with the design team who are developing the concept design for the new Library and Heritage Centre. This design will be brought back to the community later in the year.

We Asked

We are proposing to amend the approved design for the junction tables on Balfour Street with John Maurice Close, Henshaw Street and Chatham Street to reduce the level of disruption on residents.  We asked which option you prefer and how the disruptions would affect you.

You Said

We received a total of 72 responses:

Balfour Street, John Maurice Close and Henshaw Street – 40 responses

38% supported Option A (block tables)

63% supported Option B (asphalt tables) 

Surrounding Streets – 32 responses

84% supported Option A (block tables)

22% supported Option B (asphalt tables) 

We Did

We have reviewed all the feedback we received and given particular consideration to the residents of Balfour Street, John Maurice Close and Henshaw Street, particularly those residents with disabilities.  Considering all the feedback received a decision has been made to amend the approved design and proceed with Option B (asphalt tables).

Please refer to the Balfour Street Raised Table Summary Report for further details regarding the feedback we received.

We Asked

We developed an online survey, which was promoted by direct mail to addresses on Athenlay Road.

In all questions, respondents were encouraged to provide answers based on their experiences living on and travelling through Athenlay Road.

As part of the survey we asked questions about people’s reasons for being on Athenlay Road and their mode of transport, and out of speed humps and build outs which proposed intervention would they prefer.

You Said

We received 49 responses.

Many respondents noted that they had witnessed accidents or near misses on or around Athenlay Road.

Respondents expressed a preference for speed humps with a majority of 69.4%, as against 22.4% for build-outs.

We Did

From the consultation data we will be proceeding with plans to install sinusoidal humps along Athenlay Road in order to prevent traffic speeds. These works are programmed for September 2019.  Along with this intervention, we are also currently designing improvements at the junction of Athenlay Road and Kelvington Road to reduce the junction width to help prevent speeding vehicles from turning into the junction, whilst also creating a shorter and safer crossing point for pedestrians.
