Streets for People in the North Peckham area

Closed 12 Nov 2023

Opened 9 Oct 2023


Tell us what changes we can make to the streets in the North Peckham area to make it easier to walk, wheel, cycle or just spend time in the area.

A few years ago we introduced a number of measures in the streets around North Peckham, to reduce motor vehicle traffic and make the streets safer for walking and cycling. These measures have been in a 'temporary' form ever since.

Now we will be installing permanent infrastructure at these locations. While we are doing so, we would like your thoughts on any additional measures that would make the area more attractive and easy to use for residents.

In response to the monitoring of changes and traffic data we have established that traffic calming should be introduced at various locations to reduce vehicle speeds and make the area safer for those travelling by foot and by bicycle. Locations include:

  • Raised table at Fenham Road junction with Friary Road to reduce traffic speeds near schools
  • Raised table at Marmont Road and Goldsmith Road, and widen pavements and pedestrian crossing refuge to reduce speeds and improve the area for walking and wheeling
  • Traffic calming along Naylor Road to be replaced with proposed raised entry treatment at its junction with Commercial Way and raised table junctions with Nutcroft Road, Fenham Road and Studholme Road.
  • Also pavement widening on buildouts at Naylor Road junction with Meeting House Lane.

This is in line with our Streets for People programme, which is looking at improving streets across the whole of Southwark. 

You can view the current plans for the above proposals in the North Peckham area below, and tell us what you think using the survey.
