Sorry for the delay in responding. As some of you may know, I am a primary school teacher as well as being a councillor (being a councillor is not, for most, a fulltime role) and the ongoing preparations for school reopening has taken up a huge amount of time, in addition to my usual responsibilities both in the council and in school.
Let me try to respond to all these points.
Rockets asked "Will you be alerting us to which plans are being implemented and when, there are a lot of great ideas that have been posted?"
Yes I will - the filter on Melbourne Grove south is going ahead in the next few weeks and we are looking at getting bike stands installed on Lordship Lane. All other proposals are still being considered. I'll keep you posted.
Toilets in parks
I am afraid I do not know when these will be opened yet. I agree that we need them open soon but this needs to be balanced with the risk of them being places of infection. I have flagged it up with the Cabinet Member though and emphasised the need to open them as soon as is safe.
I am trying to get bigger bins in parks, and them to be collected more frequently.
Thanks for raising this rahrahrah. Yes, we are looking at road closures and social distancing measures. Details on this thread: [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk
Please do add your suggestions regarding transport to the interactive map. Goose Green has the second highest number of responses so clearly lots of people are but we want the comments to be as representative as possible!
I hope this answers everyone's questions. Have a great weekend!
