Dulwich Review Consultation

Closed 18 Jul 2021

Opened 17 May 2021

Overview

This is your opportunity to give your views on the road schemes that have been introduced in Dulwich Village, East Dulwich and Champion Hill. We want to hear from everyone who has an interest in how the streets in this area are used.

You do not have to answer all sections of the questionnaire. There are questions about specific locations, as well as questions about the schemes as a whole. If you don’t know the location, or have no opinions about it, just leave that section blank.

Streets for people

The road schemes introduced in the Dulwich area have the following aims:

  • Improve road safety.
  • Help tackle the climate emergency
  • Make walking and cycling enjoyable, safe and easy ways of getting around.
  • Reduce inequalities in health and wellbeing 
  • Reduce the amount of cut-through traffic
  • Reduce parking pressure for local residents.
  • Encourage people to shop local to help businesses and reduce car use.
  • Create a greener and healthier environment by improving air quality and reducing pollution and noise levels.
  • Make more space on our pavements for social distancing to help keep everyone safe from COVID-19.

There is lots more information about the schemes on our website at www.southwark.gov.uk/dulwichstreetspacereview 

Since we want to understand the views of residents across the Dulwich area and from all demographics, we ask that you complete the questions about where you live and your backgrounds at the end of the survey. This information will only ever be used for monitoring. We will not publish any personal data.

Why we are consulting

The results of this questionnaire, as well as the engagement events we are carrying out this spring, will be considered alongside monitoring data from the streets themselves to produce a report and a recommendation to either:

One: Make the scheme permanent
If the data and consultation feedback indicates that the trials are meeting our objectives, we will recommend making the current experimental traffic orders permanent.


Two: Make amendments to the existing scheme
If the data, consultation feedback and safety considerations indicate that changes can be made to improve a scheme then we will recommend making amendments.


Three: Remove all or part of the scheme
If the scheme is not achieving the benefits expected, we can remove all or part of the scheme (subject to safety considerations).

What happens next

We will:

  • Undertake public consultation between mid-May and early July.
  • Review consultation responses and data gathered between mid-July and mid-August.2021
  • Make recommendations for consideration by the council in the autumn.
  • If changes are approved and measures are to be retained in some form, statutory consultation will take place on a Traffic Management Order prior to a final decision to implement any permanent changes being taken.
