We did

The full impact of the consultation survey as well as our wider engagement activity has been publically published alongside the full Preventing Suicides in Southwark Strategy 2023-2028, which can be found here - Preventing Suicides in Southwark Strategy 2023-2028. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to contribute to the consultation through completing the online survey or engaging with us at face-to-face events and in-group discussions. The feedback we received has been hugely valuable and has will help us to improve our work to prevent suicide.

We asked

What changes do we need to make to support sustainable travel in Southwark?

You said

Over 70% of respondents told us they supported measures to reduce traffic in Southwark.

We did

We have published our Streets for People strategy, with detailed proposals for reducing traffic and improving our neighbourhoods for the people who live in them. Later this year we will be engaging with people across the borough to find out what this could mean at neighbourhood and street level.

We asked

What did local people want to see as the permanent traffic arrangements on Rye Lane?

You said

61% of respondents preferred to keep the buses running two-ways on Rye Lane, though residents of Rye Lane itself, and younger people, would have preferred it to be one-way or even vehicle-free. Respondents also noted issues with rubbish, narrow pavements and street clutter.

We did

We have proposed to retain the two-way buses on Rye Lane. We will be working with disabled people, and with other teams in the council to improve pavement conditions and accessibility on Rye Lane and side streets.
