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

We asked

We asked for your views on our new property licensing proposals and a Gold Standard Charter for Landlords to improve privately rented properties and your community.

You said

42% were in favour of our proposals to introduce an additional licensing scheme for houses let in multiple occupation (HMOs) with only 17% disagreeing.

45% were in favour of our selective licensing proposals for properties let in the private rented sector occupied by couples, individuals or a family. Only 20% disagreed.

67% of respondents said they would be more likely to move into a property let by a landlord who had signed up to our Gold Standard Charter.

A more detailed summary of the responses to the survey can be seen in the file ‘Consultation Final Report’.

We did

Following the outcome of the survey we made some changes to the conditions that will be attached to the licences and some of the property types included in the schemes. A list of these changes can be seen in the document ‘Council’s Consideration of Consultees Responses’.

We asked

We asked you whether you would like to change the location of the permeable road closure on Alberta Street or keep the closure in its current location. There were three options to choose from which provided different access arrangements, parking changes and impact on walking and cycling.

You said

You said - You told us that the majority of respondents to the survey (53%) preferred Option 3, this is to keep the permeable road closure in its current location on Alberta Street.

We did

Following the outcome of the survey the permeable road closure has stayed in its current location. A further review of all the low-traffic neighbourhood measures installed in Walworth as experimental measures will be carried out in Summer 2021.

We asked

We asked service users and providers for their views on the updated Travel Assistance Policy 2020, and in particular whether the terms of the policy were sufficiently clear.

You said

Overall respondents found the revised policy sufficiently clear, but offered comments on some of the specific terms.

We did

We have implemented a number of detailed changes to the text of the Policy, and the revised Travel Assistance Policy has now been approved by the Lead Cabinet Member.
