The new Neighbourhoods Fund may be able to help www.southwark.gov.uk/neighbourhoodsfund

Worth £542,000 this single, new fund is to be launched on 5 January, combining the community council fund and the Cleaner Greener Safer Revenue fund into one simple application process.

Recognising the importance of local action by communities, in developing relationships, making neighbourhoods come to life, and increasing skills and abilities, this fund is designed to help your good ideas come into being and grow from strength to strength.




At the last Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Community Council which took place on Wednesday 28 January, Councillor Mark Williams, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and David McKenna from Transport for London spoke about transport issues in the area. During the ensuing debate, members of the Youth Community Council expressed their worries about safety for young people on buses and about teenagers being stereotyped unfairly by other passengers. Local residents and members also stated their concerns as to the C10 and 381 routes being frequently shortened to stop at the Rotherhithe Roundabout resulting in a poor level of service to Rotherhithe Peninsula. Driver behaviour was also something that participants felt needed improvement. People also brought up their worries with regards the impact of construction lorries on the local area brought about by the Thames Tideway Tunnel construction. The Bakerloo Line extension, the impact of a proposed new river crossing at Silvertown on the Rotherhithe Tunnel traffic and the extension of the bike hire scheme were other transport related items brought up, as were issues of safety at specific junctions. 

Presentations were also given by the Shad Thames Area Management Partnership who spoke about what they do. The  Southwark Planning team came next and introduced the new Southwark Plan consultation events. Zander Gibson, the borough commander was also at the meeting, introducing the work of the newly formed Southwark Safer Neighbourhood Board which is a newly formed independent body composed of professional, and community representatives that will hold Southwark Metropolitan Police Service to account, and will support and engage the community on matters of community safety and policing in Southwark. Councillors also decided on the 2015-16 Cleaner Greener Safer Capital scheme allocations.
