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 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.

We asked

What time of day are you able to leave waste out for collection in the morning and evening?

You said

  • In the morning between 8am and 9am
  • In the evening between 6pm and 7pm

We did

  • We listened to the views expressed by residents and businesses
  • We will use the most popular suggestions (as above) for the Camberwell Town Centre scheme
  • As with other areas that benefit from the scheme, there will be no waste or large commercial waste bins on the streets of Camberwell Town Centre for most of each day
  • These arrangement will make the area cleaner and more pleasant for everyone


Southwark Council has made the decision to postpone the roll-out of the timed waste collection scheme to Camberwell in response to the current impact COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having.

The current government advice is for non-essential businesses to close and for people to stay at home unless they are travelling for the reasons given in the guidance. It is essential for us as a council to follow the government advice regarding staff, and the stay at home requirement, in order to limit the spread of the virus.
