Dulwich Village junction – allow access for emergency services, blue badge holders, SEND transport and carers

We the undersigned petition the council to honour its previous commitments and ensure that the layout of the redesigned Calton Avenue/Court Lane junction enables full access for emergency service vehicles, and also provides at a minimum such access to Blue Badge holders; SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) transport, including children living in Southwark travelling to a school outside the borough (and vice-versa); community first responders, NHS health workers and social care workers. We note that the equalities impact assessment prepared for Southwark Council and dated November 2021 assumed that much of this access would be given, in order to mitigate the impacts on protected groups. We also note that Southwark’s head of highways has confirmed that the junction redesign has the potential to allow such access.
