We are proposing to implement parking restrictions to prioritise parking for residents in the streets south of Old Kent Road.
At the same time we would like to review the existing parking restrictions in Trafalgar zone (T). Permit requirements were removed in 2006 and we would like to determine whether this arrangement still works or whether we should reinstate the permit requirements.
We are proposing to make changes to Brenchley Gardens to reduce vehicle speed and improve safety for users by providing better facilities for walking, cycling and accessing public transport. Speed surveys have told us that the average speed of vehicles on Brenchley Gardens is 26.5mph which is above the speed limit.
Our proposals for Brenchley Gardens are focussed on reducing vehicle
speed in-line with Southwark’s 20 mph review. We are proposing
traffic calming measures including raised tables and carriageway
narrowing. These measures will also have additional benefits including:
• Improved pedestrian crossings
• Footway widening
Our proposals have been designed using national
design standards and best practice but to ensure the scheme meets the needs of the local community, we need to hear from you

Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood
Healthier and safer streets for Brixton. Join the conversation to develop ideas for your neighbourhood.
Formerly Quietway 7.
We are improving walking and cycling facilities on Sumner Street including the junction with Southwark Street. These changes will:
- Provide a more pleasant environment for people visiting Tate Modern and local businesses;
- Improve cycle facilities and the connection to Cycle Superhighway 7; and
- Create a healthier, safer street in line with the Healthy Streets approach.
We would like to know your view on our proposals for:
- Improvements to pedestrian and cycle facilities at the Dog Kennel Hill junction with Grove Hill Road and Champion Hill; and
- Making permanent the ‘No Entry' on Champion Hill.
These changes will improve safety, encourage cycling and walking in line with the Healthy Streets approach, and will enable the junction to form part of Cycleway 17. These changes represent the first stage of wider area changes as part of the Camberwell area-wide study.
The key measures proposed are:
- Segregated westbound cycle lane in Grove Hill Road;
- Separate cycle signal at the Grove Hill Road junction;
- Early release for cyclists at Champion Hill;
- Footway widening in Grove Hill Road; and
- ‘No entry' to be made permanent in Champion Hill.
Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich
Recent projects and engagement with residents in the Dulwich area have shown a common theme - there's too much traffic in the area - and this is having an adverse effect on local life.
We want to work with residents to address these concerns about traffic volume and its impact on the community.
- streets in the Dulwich Village area carry much higher than the average traffic on similar residential streets in the borough
- in the peak hours some residential streets are carrying more traffic than major A-roads.
- the peak hours are between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 8pm. This unusual traffic pattern shows that traffic using the area includes significant volumes of commuter traffic
- the pollution profile shows that air pollution is worse between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm
- there are very high numbers of pupils crossing the roads during the peak hours
- over 7000 through journeys are made in the area in a typical day. They enter and exit the neighbourhood within less than 10 to 15 minutes
We would like to know your views on our proposals along the A202 (Peckham High Street) between the junctions with Basing Court and Mission Place. The proposals aim to address identified safety issues, while providing a safer and more pleasant environment for those walking, cycling and using public transport in the area.
Tragically, along Peckham High Street there have been three fatal collisions since 2015, most recently in January 2020. TfL is seeking to eradicate deaths and serious injuries from our roads, in line with the Mayor’s Vision Zero policy for London. We believe that when people leave their homes each day, they should feel safe and confident about the journey ahead. By taking the following steps along Peckham High Street, we hope to create a safer road layout for everyone travelling in Peckham.
Our proposals also form part of the Mayor’s plan for Healthy Streets, a long-term vision to enable more people to walk, cycle and use public transport by making London’s streets healthier, safer and more welcoming.
