Southwark Council are looking at ways to improve the streets south of Burgess Park, with a view to making the area safer and healthier for all road users.

If you live in the area, or you regularly drive, cycle or walk in these streets, please join us for a series of workshops to help us design the future look and feel of these streets.

  • Session 1: Tuesday 30 January 6pm
  • Session 2: Tuesday 13 February from 3pm
  • Session 3: Wednesday 21 March from 5.30pm to 8pm

All sessions will be held at St Luke’s Church Peckham, Chandler Way, Peckham, London, SE15 6LU.

In the first session we heard from residents about some of the issues they experienced, such as difficulties with parking in the area, and challenges for pedestrians and cyclists, particularly on Commercial Way. We talked about what roads the next phase of the Southwark Spine cycling route should take.

In the second session, we had a walking tour of the area to look at the some of the issues identified, then residents worked with our specialist street design team to come up with ideas for improving the roads.

Our street design team have now drawn up some proposals for reducing parking pressures in the area as well as ways to help pedestrians and cyclists on busy roads such as Commercial Way and St George’s Way. The third session on 21 March will give local people a chance to comment on the design proposals and help us make further changes.

This is your opportunity to get involved in local street improvements right from the start, so please join us.
