Burgess Park South

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.

We held three public workshops to discuss proposals for the area south of Burgess Park earlier this year:

  • 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 were 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 then drew 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 gave local people a chance to comment on the design proposals and helped us to make further changes.

We are currently in the process of using your ideas to come up with more detailed designs to present to you in a consultation.

We will send the designs including details of the proposed parking restrictions later in 2018 for your comments. Drawings will also be available on our website and our consultation hub.
