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 want to improve walking and cycling along the proposed Southwark Spine route between East Dulwich and Peckham. We asked what you thought of our proposals to implement pedestrian facilities, cycle lanes, speed calming, parking, and signage and marking improvements.

You Said

We received 463 responses: 28% were 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied', 63% were 'dissatisfied' or 'very dissatisfied'. Whilst there was an overal disatisfaction, the northern half of the route (which includes the Bellenden Gyratory), recieved higher overall satisfaction. The key concern for the remainder of the route was attributed to the extent of parking loss. There was very high support for the proposals for the Maxted Road zebra crossing.

We Did

We will be making some changes to our proposals that better address your concerns and suggestions - see the link to the Individual Decision Maker report here. These proposals will proceed onto subsequent design phases, followed by statutory consultation late-2018.

We Asked

Would you like a parking zone introduced on your street?

You Said

From 275 valid responses representing an 11% response rate, 53% of respondents were in favour of a parking zone, 39% were against a parking zone and 8% were undecided.

Please see attached report below for the full consultation results.

We Did

We have recommended that a parking zone is implemented across the whole area operating Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6.30pm.

The recommendation will now go to the Cabinet Member for Environment and the Public Realm for a decision and then subject to approval, statutory consultation will follow.

We Asked

Between 9 October until 30 October 2017 we invited people to respond to two questions:

1. Which is your preferred option for Camberwell Grove Bridge?

Option 1: Re-open bridge to alternating one-way traffic for small motor vehicles

Option 2: Keep the bridge closed to motor traffic

2. Do you have any comments?


We also collected respondents’ postcodes, so that we would be able to relate the responses we received to the situation in specific streets in the consultation area.

You Said

73% of respondents thought that we should re-open Camberwell Grove Bridge to motor traffic


Our analysis of comments revealed some main themes:


  1. Concern that the closure of Camberwell Grove bridge had led to increases in traffic, noise and pollution on a number of surrounding roads. Over one third of all respondents raised this kind of concern.


  1. Concern that the closure of Camberwell Grove bridge meant that some drivers, including emergency services, were having to take major detours and longer routes.


  1. Appreciation for the positive local impacts of the closure, and a view that these should be extended to other roads, with further closures as part of a wider traffic management plan for the area.


  1. Concern about safety issues and air pollution on a number of surrounding roads, particularly around schools on Lyndhurst Way/Bellenden Road.


  1. Appreciation of the improvements in traffic, air quality and road noise on Camberwell Grove Road itself.

We Did

We have summarised the consultation responses and have set out some recommendations and next steps in our Consultation Report. This document is available below.
