We have been promoting our proposed amendments the roads schemes in Dulwich, which we think would be of benefit to all of our residents – in particular to get a permit scheme to allow resident access, and to replace the 24/7 closure at the Village junction with a timed closure, to reduce traffic displacement onto our roads.
You have seen the various representations we have made to Southwark objecting to the closure and suggesting alternatives. We have also been pressing to be involved in designing the forthcoming ‘community engagement/ consultation’ programme which Southwark have said they are designing, with a view to making sure that our voices are properly heard.
Another strand, (which we have raised previously and discussed at the AGM in November), is to reach out to and work with other groups which share similar goals to us.
A leaflet from the Dulwich Alliance will shortly be arriving in your letterbox, reminding you of the petition. Website is www.dulwichalliance.org.
The Dulwich Alliance currently comprises ourselves, The Dulwich Village Association (representing shops and businesses in Dulwich Village), The Dulwich Sports Club, Melbourne Grove Traders and One Dulwich. We expect more groups will join over time.
