1. Presentation by Janet Morris, chair of STAMP (Shad Thames Area Management Partnership) re the Shad Thames traffic survey on how delivering and servicing in the area affects noise, pollution and safety. Two surveys took place: residents (100 responses) and businesses (20) and CCTV observed.
LB Southwark paid for consultants Steer Davis Gleave to produce a report with recommendations. This may include consolidations centres for deliveries and working with businesses to reduce number of refuse/recycling companies (currently 11 different collecting companies used by 20 businesses). Also, need for behavioural change by residents re deliveries.
Janet to forward draft report and info re 5/10 St Saviours Dock meeting to Erina fro distribution.
2. Healthy Streets – the group looked at the suggestions of signs or evidence of healthy streets (list the group had previously suggested) and assigned them to the 10 Indicators of a Healthy Streets.
Next step – to take the list to a local street and test it.
List of streets to be agreed.
3. Camberwell Grove Street Party went very well.
Bridge is still closed and consultation on this will take place October / November. Concern expressed that a traffic management strategy for the area is needed.
Noted that permission for road closures for street parties is coming through very slowly – Peter W to contact Ian Wingfield to ask him to investigate and improve.
The wrong street has finally been corrected.
Town Centre scheme – looks as if LBS may agree to unsatisfactory TfL scheme.
5. Borough – Erina’s Twitter campaign re A-boards and bins continues. Next step: to get TfL to remove temporary road signs where redundant.
6. Harper Road – now 1 year since major changes at E & C – group is monitoring changes on Harper Road.
7. Twitter – 1800 followers of SLS Twitter.
8. Cycle Hoop – visit to this small business (also produces “park-etts”) in SE26 27/9/17 at 5pm with Alastair.
9. Road maintenance – new scheme similar to Cleaner Greener Safer starting up: local residents will suggest roads needing attention to Community Council who will hold roads maintenance budget for area.
Unclear whether this is for basic maintenance or improvements.
