New bike hangars on their way to Brixton Hill

A consultation has started on a series of new bike hangars across Brixton Hill ward. These are part of a phased programme to create 1,000 new hangar spaces across Lambeth by 2022 to support residents who have a bike but cannot store them at their home. We know that despite having more hangars than anywhere else, many Brixton Hill residents are still on the waiting list and have pushed hard for this investment in the ward.

The consultation runs from 19 August until 15 September and we need residents to make their views heard. Residents of the roads affected will be receiving a letter in coming days and an online survey is available at https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/have-your-say-on-lambeth%E2%80%99s-cycle-hangar-installation-phase-4

Roads affected include:

  • Baytree Road
  • Doverfield Road
  • Dumbarton Road
  • Felsberg Road
  • Glenelg Road
  • Hayter Road
  • Lambert Road
  • Margate Road
  • Mauleverer Road
  • Strathleven Road
  • Sudbourne Road
  • Wingford Road

Formal consultation launched on Controlled Parking Zones for Brixton Hill

Proposals around Morrish Road

From today residents can respond to a consultation on proposals for new controlled parking zones either side of Brixton Hill up to the South Circular. The council has taken the decision to proceed with the implementation of a Controlled Parking Zone, subject to the outcome of the statutory consultation.

This follows an informal consultation late last year, which showed support for controlled parking in those areas without a CPZ currently. The proposals have been guided by the detailed comments residents made, including the hours of operation. Efforts have been made to have a mix of areas that are residents only as well as metered parking, so that there are options for visitors to the area but commuter parking is deterred.

This follows a great deal of work by residents and councillors to highlight the issue and ensure the Council understood the need for parking controls to deal with increased pressure from commuter parking. Continue reading
