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 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.

We Asked

In January and February 2019 we asked for your views on a proposed controlled parking zone in East Dulwich, as well as a number of suggested healthy streets improvements.

You Said

We received a very large number of responses. Overall residents did not want to see a parking zone covering this whole area. Residents of the streets closer to East Dulwich Station were in favour of a parking zone. The majority of respondents within the reduced area were in favour of an all day zone. The results of the consultation are summarised in an interim report.

We Did

We produced an interim report (see link below) for the purposes of inviting feedback from community council on the interim recommendations.

In the interim report we proposed a parking zone to cover the whole of the study area with all day parking restrictions.

Comments on the report were invited from Community Council.

The report was discussed at the Dulwich Community Council Forum meeting on 27 April 2019. Dulwich Community Council gave the following feedback:

•        For the proposed ‘Melbourne Grove’ area to exclude a number of streets adjacent to Lordship Lane where there was no evident majority (Blackwater Street, Bassano Street, Chesterfield Grove, Ashbourne Grove and Melbourne Grove south of East Dulwich Grove)

•        For the area to be named ‘East Dulwich Grove zone’.

•        Hours of operation reduced to 2 hours
