We Asked, You Said, We Did

We take your feedback seriously and try to use it whenever we can.

Here are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

We Asked

We want to improve pedestrian amenity on Burbage Road. We asked what you thought of our proposal to provide a new raised zebra crossing.

You Said

We received 36 responses: 86.11% supported the proposals, 8.33% opposed them and 5.56% had no opinion. A key concern raised was that there is a lack of space for vehicles to wait between the proposed zebra crossing and Half Moon Lane, resulting in vehicles obstructing traffic along Half Moon Lane.

We Did

We have made some minor changes to our proposals that better address your concerns and suggestions, see 'Burbage Road Outline Design - Post consultation' at the bottom of this page. These proposals will proceed onto subsequent design phases, followed by statutory consultation and implementation in mid-2017.

We Asked

We want to improve bus journey reliability along Peckham Rye (A2215). We asked what you thought of our proposals to introduce a 3 metre wide bus lane.

You Said

We received 13 responses: 100% supported the proposals, 0% opposed them and 0% had no opinion.

We Did

The proposal will now go to the Cabinet Member for Environment and the Public Realm for decision and then subject to approval we will prepare a more detailed design based on the initial proposals and statutory consultation will follow.

We Asked

As part of the Cemetery Strategy, we are planning on preparing the old nursery site at Honor Oak (known as Area B) for burial. We asked what you thought of our proposed design & layout.

You Said

We received 445 responses. 89% disliked some or all elements of the design and layout. A significant number suggested Area B should be developed into a natural green space that could be used by the local community and enhanced biodiversity, rather than a traditional burial ground.

We Did

We have made changes to our proposals that better address your concerns and suggestions.

We Asked

We want to improve our services for council homeowners (people who have bought an ex-council home). We asked what you thought of our proposals.

You Said

We received 665 responses. 92% supported our proposals for the new service.

We Did

We plan to launch the new service shortly.

We Asked

We know many businesses and flats on Walworth Road don't have enough space to store their rubbish, meaning it's often left on the pavement. We proposed 'timed waste collections' so you could leave your rubbish out at a set time to be collected promptly. This would mean that for up to 20 hours of the day, there would be no waste on the pavement. We asked when would be the most convenient times for you to leave your waste out for collection.

You Said

We received 65 responses. The most popular times were 8 - 9 in the morning (45%) and 6:30 - 7:30 in the evening (38%).

We Did

We started piloting timed collections at the most popular times from 1 February 2016.

We Asked

We are working with with Transport for London (TfL) to make Peckham town centre safer for pedestrians. We asked what you thought could be done.

You Said

We received 229 responses. We have used this feedback to develop a number of suggestions to make the town centre safer for pedestrians.

We Did

This project includes roads managed by TfL. We are waiting for TfL to confirm timescales. We will provide an update by early 2017. In the meantime, we are using the feedback from this consultation to inform other projects, such as Peckham Square.

We Asked

We want to improve the shopping parade on Westmoreland Road (off Walworth Road). We asked what you thought of our proposals to improve the footway.

You Said

We received 103 responses: 93% supported the proposals, 4% opposed them and 3% had no opinion.

We Did

The proposals were approved by Borough, Bankside & Walworth Community Council in September 2015. We are preparing a more detailed design based on the initial proposals and statutory consultation will start in January 2016.

We Asked

Walworth Town Hall was damaged by a fire in 2013. We asked what you thought of our proposed design for the new Walworth Town Hall.

You Said

The feedback stated that a lot of thought went into the stage one design which reflected an overall sense of community. It also stated that design achieved the vision for the redevelopment as it integrated the different functions of the building, the new building design with the original features of the building, and the main entrance with the new Walworth Square.

We Did

Unfortunately, the cost of refurbishing the building increased beyond our budget. We carried out a second consultation to find out how you thought we should proceed. We are currently looking into a solution and will confirm our next steps as soon as possible.

We Asked

We use parking zones to restrict parking in certain areas during busy times. We do this to make sure residents and local businesses have enough parking spaces. We asked whether you were happy with the current arrangements for the parking zone in East Camberwell, which runs from 8:30am - 6:30pm, Monday - Friday.

You Said

We received 204 responses. 50% wanted the hours to remain the same and 78% wanted the days to remain the same.

We Did

There will be no change to the current arrangements for the parking zone.
