Quietway through Dulwich Village expected to go ahead

Southwark Council planners want to move ahead now with the Quietway from  Elephant & Castle to Crystal Palace through Dulwich Village.

Dulwich residents were active in raising objections to the Quietway Scheme and discussions have been continuing with the Council.  Southwark’s planners are now recommending that the scheme proceed.  Shortly, Cllr Wingfield, the responsible Southwark Councillor, will decide whether to accept the recommendations.

The full proposals are at http://moderngov.southwark.gov.uk/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=50014361&Opt=0

Depending on the decision Cllr Wingfield makes and the reasons he gives for his decision there will be a few days to decide whether the Councillors on the Overview & Scrutiny Committee should be invited to challenge that decision and recommend ways he can improve it.

Once Cllr Wingfield’s decision is made public our local councillors will want to hear residents’ views before determining whether they should call the decision in for scrutiny by Southwark Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee.  

The decision will be made by Thursday 27th July and call ins must happen within five days thereafter.

Already Council formal notices are appearing on lampposts:
