A FURTHER MEETING TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK TO MOVE THIS PROJECT FORWARD
The massive repaint of the station is still going on.
The COmmunity Safety officer for this area Kate Newham is endeavouring to get measures in place to prevent cyclists fronm speeding through and out of the foot tunnel and also in conjunection with 198 Art Gallery to brighten the foot tunnel.
On Friday a group of residents and councillors from both Lambeth ( Jim Dickson )and Southwark Michelle Pearce and Toby Eckersley chair of the Dulwich Community Council, turned up for a photo shoot with several local newspapers .
The protest was against Souithwark Council's downgrading of the identity of Herne Hill. This matter was debated at the full council executive last Thursday and a rather dismissive reply was given to Toby but no dount this will not be taken lying down.
The Herne Hill Society will fight for the best outcome.
An application to allow the pub to open on a 24/7 basis as required has been tunred down by Lambeth Licensing committee.
There is still an outstanding application for a late licence aT 127 Dulwich Road know as the Rum bar.

works have started to improve pedestrian safety at this dangerous junction where effectively
five roads meet and make it very hazardouse for pedestrians. as a result the priorities wioll be changed and hope fully a much safer area will result.......
works have also started in Redpost Hill so far the expected diversion of the 37 away from HAlf Moon Lane has not taken place but be alert in case you find yourself waiting too long it may happen a few days later
.............a car was followed into an alley in the Croxted last Friday evening the driver got out and fired at least three rounds at unarmed police........he got away the passenger was arrested.
The Police have blocked incomNig calls to the telephones at the station ( the public ones) to interrupt the drugs trade. measures will be put in place shortly to stop cyclists belting through the Herne Hill foot tunnel at the station and 198 Art Gallery have been commissioned to to a mural there as well and a feature will be added to maked begging more difficult.
Clt Toby Eckersley assures us that the new siging welcoming peeople to Dulwich outside No 3 Half Moon Lane has been put there against the wishes of the Community Council and hopefully this will go in the near future apparently others have appeared including one at the top of Sunray Avenue.

watch this space the the demolition squad has moved in ..........amongst other things we
hope there will be planning gain for either the Junction or Brockwell Park.
email paulreyn@aol if you hear anything about this site.
We find that the neglected area behind Sainsbury's Dog Kennell Hill is on a lease to Dulwich Hamley Football Club. The council announced that they at are the early stages of planning a state of the art playingfields and sports facilities changing rooms etc to serve the many schools in the area.
proposasl to extend and vary the current scheme will be decided on by the Gill Davies the Executive for Environment and Regeneration. It is hopew that Warmington Road and Howeletts will be included. Ruskin is planned to go in as well as Carver. There are plans to reduce the hours of operation to 11-1pm. Carver want residents only but that wont allow for any business or shop users at Herne Hill End
Following the establishment of the Prohect Board last August a lot of progress has been made in
moving towards detailed drawing of the scheme. It is planned to get a newsletter out to all households in the area in the next few weeks. Conbstand vigilance is required by the community to ensure that this project is kept on the agenda as we are still to secure full funding .
Lambeth is expected to announce the proposals of the Lottery Bid for improvements renovations to Brockwell Park following a presentation to councillors this week.
Yes Southwark have renamed that part of Herne Hill starting at the Junction of Herne Hill and
and Half Moon Lane its now Dulwich- I have written on behalf of the Forum asking for our identity back please and for the sign to be changed or moved ( to say the start of Village way or Half way up Burbage Road not put forward but obvious locations for the boundary line of Dulwich.
The Forum has learnt that discusssions are taking place about the withdrawal of weekly travel cards covering suburban rail and underground/bus journies. We should have more information later this week.

we have one in the Herne Hill ward and the Mayor has announced that all remaining wards in London ( another 340 and including Village Ward will have a team in place. Timnetables move but at present APril is being quoted.
The news teams will have 4 officers instead of the present 6. I think this is to allow for recruitment and officers can be added at a later date.
The Herne Hill team has a community panel made up of local people and the forum has three
reps on it. They meet quarterly and discuss crime and priorities. They last met 10th January.
Considerable progress has been made in problems tackled. The great benefit is that the policing can be proactive rather than reactive also a necessary service nevertheless).
with the establishment of the project board i August a lot of progress has been made. The Forum are at present drafting up a newsletter and this will be distributed widely and it is planned to have a public meeting towards the end of February.
Starts from the Clocktower 2pm Sunday 15th January it is proving to be a great hit. Lead by Susy Hogarth who is the Friends Brockwell Park Ornithologist and volunteer manager.
Susy also produced the first of Brockwell Park christmas cards this year and they sold over 1200
takes place at Herne Hill Baptist Church Hall Half Moon Lane 19th January 7pm.
