Residents agree a Code of Conduct with the Velodrome

Residents have agreed a Code of Conduct with the HHVT prior to the planning consent meeting for Herne Hill Velodrome on 29 January

The Southwark Planning Committee meet to consider proposals to add flood lighting and to build a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and an  Inner Track at 7pm on 29 January at  160 Tooley Street. BRRA and TRRA will be represented at the planning meeting.  In advance of the planned  developments, Burbage, Turney and Village Way residents met with representatives of the Velodrome’s management team to agree a Code of Conduct which will cover the times of use of the site for cycling, lighting, security,  traffic and noise limitation. This code is:HHVT with residents, Code of Conduct, 10th January 2013. The code will be fine- tuned over the coming year and subject to regular review, as is the case with the guidelines which are in place for our other neighbouring sports facilities. Any comments are welcomed by the Chairs of BRRA or TRRA.

A number of additional specific residents’ concerns have also been addressed and the Friends of the Velodrome have offered to pursue tree screening for residents who back on to the site ( with the kind support of the Dulwich Society); to improve the safety of the entrance to the Velodrome ( through a bid for a Southwark Community Council Grant) and to investigate alternatives to the use of the Derney Pacer Bikes.

The HHVT have commissioned a prototype of the new lighting which will be set up for us to see on site very shortly and details of this will follow. If you would like to see the actual lighting in current use there is an example visible at a car park at Heathrow airport and details are on the map above.

In the meantime the Velodrome extend a warm welcome to residents wishing to use the facilities: and a schedule of all the key events planned for this forthcoming season is attached above so that you are aware of when noise, parking and other disruption is likely to occur.
