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 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

UPDATE:

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.

We asked

We want to change how the streets perform so that we can improve:

  • walking - by providing new crossings and widening footways
  • cycling - by providing segregated cycleway
  • bus reliability - improving bus journey times
  • local access issues - by creating two-way streets
  • public realm - such as Lower Road shopping area

We asked what you thought of our propoposals which included:

  • All roads are made two-way, except for Cope Street, Croft Street and a small section of Hawkstone Road
  • Lower Road between Rotherhithe Old Road and Redriff Road becomes bus and cycle only to enable connections with Cycleway 4 and the Rotherhithe Cycleway
  • The through route for traffic becomes Rotherhithe Old Road, Rotherhithe New Road, Bush Road and Bestwood Street
  • A segregated two-way cycleway is provided along  Lower Road, this forms part of the overall Cycleway 4 proposals
  • Straight ahead movement introduced from Plough Way into Rotherhithe New Road
  • Five new pedestrian crossings
  • Public realm improvements including new planting
  • Three trees removed, 13 new trees provided. Over the two projects there is an overall gain of five trees
  • Amendments to some bus routes

You said

In total, there were 1220 respondents to the online consultation.  Approximately 70% of those that responded supported the proposals.  The full report can be found here.

We did

We are now reviewing the scheme in light of the comments and suggestions that have been raised.  The review is expected to be completed in the Autumn of 2020.
