DUCKS FIRST COMMUNITIES LAST
BROCKWELL PARK PROPOSAL TO MOVE THE CHILDREN'S
when is an option not an option ???
when one of them is offered as a proposal unlikely to receive planning approval.
A further CONSULTATION took place on Saturday and was very well attended.
If you want to make a comment on the proposals contact Trevor Uprichard at Lambeth, the project officer email@example.com.
There are two options only- one of which is viable- to move the pool and create a pool/ water feature by the present children's play area.
The alternative is to site it between the main pond and the houses in Brockwell Gate- the pros and cons were loaded against the scheme and largely subjective . The cons also stated that it is likely not to get planning approval.. so where is the option.?
COMMUNITIES FIRST? or is it ducks. The present paddling pool is to be demolished to make way for a wildlife pond and wetland area.
CONTROLLED PARKING ISSUES.
CONTROLLED PARKING PROPOSALS TULSE HILL/HERNE HILL-
(Croxted/Rosendale/Guernsey/Hawarden inter alia.
The following text is From Clr John Whelan, Thurlow Park Ward and leader of Conservative Group Lambeth Council
Subject: RE: Tulse Hill Controlled Parking Zone Extension
I have been advised by Lambeth Council officials as follows about the timetable for the consultation over the proposed extension of the Tulse Hill Controlled Parking Zone. The officer says the lead person on this has left the council and they are recruiting a successor - it took some two weeks for Lambeth officers to own up to the fact that this particular officer had left and no one had taken over his responsibilities. Where I work when not on council duties that would mean someone getting the sack.
The rest of the advice is in quotes:
"The intention had been to conduct the initial consultation in the summer, the detailed consultation in the autumn, and implementation next spring. Since there was some disagreement over the boundary of the consultation area, this will be subject to a Delegated Decision. The report is currently being checked prior to circulation. I expect the decision to be made and a new project manager to be in place in time to commence discussions with key stakeholders and the first stage of the consultation in June/July."
To my mind this is nothing short of a fiasco since the scheme was originally due to be put out for consultation in July 2005. Nor can I understand the reticence over disclosing the areas where consultation is to take place. I have also received separately some concerns expressed by a local resident which I am circulating more widely as I think they pose concerns regardless of whether people agree with having controlled parking or not:
"I recently had a conversation with a friend who lives in Brixton, regarding the consultation process for a CPZ on their road. It would seem that someone had managed to photocopy the response form, which was then distributed to all and sundry (including people who regularly used her street as a car park). The result of this part of the consultation was a huge NO!, despite the fact that the majority of residents wanted the CPZ. It may worth ensuring the robustness of any future postal consultation.
In the advice mentioned above, it talks about a "delegated decision" meaning that it is a decision taken by officers not elected members. However, a delegated decision can be "called in" by members for review, especially if it is unreasonable. I am planning to seek a high level briefing about this project invoking what is called the "councillor's need to know" right and will come back to you in due course keeping all options open for the time being
Thanks you for reading this - please feel free to forward this advice to anyone who you might think has an interest in the matter, which is potentially the most important change in the street scene for many years in our ward. It goes beyond which streets are to be included because it must take account of displacement at the boundaries of the scheme as well as the existence of nearby Southwark CPZs.
With a scheme of this kind there are not only issues around the hours of operation but also the signs and lines will be changed. Once the scheme is in place there will undoubtedly be aggressive enforcement and finally the basic permit charge has now been increased to £115 a year.

REGENT ROAD NEIGHBOURHOOD WATHC
REGENT ROAD NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH INVITATION
Dear Herne Hill Forum,
We're starting up Neighbourhood watch in Regent Road, and thought it would be good to let members of the forum know in case anyone else is interested in starting up their own Neighbourhood watch.
The whole of Regent Road - and anyone else who's interested - is invited to a meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 5 June
in the upstairs room of the Prince Regent Pub
at the end of the road.
After several burgleries in the area we'd like to set up Neighbourhood Watch.
We'd also like to hear everyone else's ideas for Neighbourhood Watch.
We're not expecting it to be an intensive curtain twitching exercise with monthly meetings, but just a chance to get to know each other and keep a look out.
The meeting will finish in good time for the pub quiz at 8pm.
Perhaps you could publish this on your blog. Let us know if you've got any ideas or suggestions, we're already in contact with the long established group on Dorchester Drive.

This is Lambeth's is proposal to change the method of engagment with communities
At the meeting of the Brixton Area Committee this evening representations were made from the floor that the radical proposal
to introduce Councillors into the SNT Communiy panels and extend the remit of these panels .had been introduced after the consultation had been completed. Whilst this maybe a good idea the implications
have not been discussed nor public views on it sought.
The Committee passed a resolution to go to Cabinet Thursday morning that the further discussion on this matter be held with Forums.
BRIXTON CENTRAL SQUARE
BRIXTON CENTRAL SQUARE ANOTHER STEP CLOSER.
The Brixton Area Committee was told tonight that all funding is in place. £3.5m from Transport for London and £4.5million from London Development Agency. It is hoped to have the planning process completed by September.
The scheme will integrate all the spaces , Tate Gardens Windrush Square and St Matthews Peae Gardens. The road in front of the Town Hall, Brixton Hill A23 will become two way with only buses being permitted through Effra Road , 2,432,3,37,196,,415, and schools services ..Safety within the reshaped open space featured high on the design priorities.
The latest pamphlet indicates buses and cars through Effra Road, so clarification need on that point.
There will be an exhibition at the the Central Library, Tate Gardens from 14-25 MaySATURDAY 19TH MAY THERE WILL BE A PUBLIC EVENT IN TATE GARDENS 10AM-4PM WHEN OFFICERS WILL BE ON HAND TO ANSWER QUESTIONS
