Hi all

I am really devestated to hear the news of a fatal stabbing on Lordship Lane, in Goose Green ward. I am sure many of you will have seen it in the news.

Here is a statement from the police.




A man has died following a stabbing in East Dulwich.

Police were called at approximately 02:35hrs on Sunday, 10 February, to reports of a man stabbed in Lordship Lane, near the junction with East Dulwich Grove, SE22.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended.

The victim, believed to be aged in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene at 03:04hrs. Formal identification and a post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

Road closures remain in place around the scene.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating.

There have been no arrests at this early stage. Enquiries into the circumstances remain ongoing.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information, should call police on 101 quoting CAD 1048/10feb. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

We councillors are in touch with the police and the council. I will provide more information when it is available.

Please be very wary of posting any information on here or in public as it could jeopardise the ongoing investigation.

Best wishes
James

This seems trivial given the nature of your last post but the parking zone is an issue for local residents.

I understand you are Councillor for the Goose Green ward but East Dulwich residents in other wards also use the businesses within the consultation area and as they support the businesses I would ask to to confirm all responses to the consultation will be taken into account. Having looked at the report for the Dog Kennel Hill zone only responses from residents were considered valid. I can understand that for the majority of zones the impact is on residents but that is not the case for the East Dulwich zone
1. The consultation is not just restricted to parking but also healthier streets which impact all who visit the area
2. Other East Dulwich residents living outside the area of the zone support businesses in the zone. Without their custom the livelihood of the traders and vibrancy of East Dulwich may well suffer in the ways concerns have been expressed. Driving into the zone is probably less of an issue - we live in the Champion Hill ward but walk / take the bus to The Lordship which is under 1 mile away but in the 20+ years we have lived in East Dulwich we have supported a number of businesses and will continue to do so.
The questionnaire does give the option to choose that you are completing it as a visitor to the area so I trust this means views will be taken into account but would be grateful if you could support this.

I will also be emailing the Councillors for the Champion Hill Ward. I am sure you and your colleagues have already hd discussions on this.

Hello James, I have a further question re the proposed controlled parking zone in East Dulwich.

Please could you tell me how much it will cost the council to implement the plans they have set out in the consultation document?

Many thanks

Hello James, I wondered if you knew the answer to my question at all (cost the council to implement the controlled parking plans)?

I have heard form another source that the council has spent 2.5m on the east dulwich consultation alone. Is that figure accurate and were you or your fellow councillors aware of it in advance?

Hello James

I have a third money question for you! Did Southwark council give any money to Dulwich Hamlet in the last 12 months, and if so how much?

If you can't help with these 3 questions, do you know who at the council can please?

They are 1) cost of implementing the CPZ 2) cost of the CPZ consulatation and 3) how much money, if any Southwark put into Dulwich Hamlet football club.

Many thanks

Dear all

I am back from my holiday!

1) All responses to the consultation are considered. However, I have made a commitment - backed by the Leader of the Council - that the scheme will only be implemented in an area if the majority of residents living there respond to the consultation positively.

2) I do not know what the cost will be to implement the scheme. It will clearly depend on the size of the area of coverage, along with a number of other variables which are subject to the consultation. The revenue from parking permits is intended to cover the costs though.

3) The CPZ consultation will have cost nowhere near 2.5m. I do not know the exact figure for this consultation but in the past they have been around 20,000 - so less than 1% of the figure you heard!

4) I doubt that the Council put any money into Dulwich Hamlet FC but I can check to make sure.

5) Still looking into the Quietway, which predates me. ArtfulDogger, can you email me directly with a specific set of queries you want me to answer?

Best wishes
James

Hi James,
Just to be clear, by area do you mean the area in total respresented by you as a councillor or do you mean a majority positive response street by street, so that some streets are CPZ and others not? If the latter, are 'positive responses' counted per property or per person?

Hi James

To reiterate my question, what are the design differences between the consulted on implementation of the quietway and what the council are now proposing to implement ?

messageRe: Goose Green councillors - how can we help?
Posted by jamesmcash February 21, 05:24PM

Hi firstmate

This could mean partial implementaion within a subarea of the area consulted but it would not be street by street, rather a more substantial section i.e. the streets around East Dulwich station.

I outlined this earlier in the thread:

The responses are counted per person.

Re.East Dulwich CPZ consultation

James - how are responses from those living outside the proposed CPZ area going to be treated. There are many reasons why those living outside the area could be concerned - e.g. they could live elsewhere but use their car for shopping in East Dulwich or they could live just outside the zone and be fearful of having a parking problem in future when they haven't got that problem now. Some roads go across the boundary so part of the road would be in the zone and part would not.

How much weight will be given to their objections or will they count for nothing?

James, I am still waiting for your response on the quietway (see above)

messageRe: Goose Green councillors - how can we help?
Posted by jamesmcash March 13, 02:39PM

Hi Abe_froeman

I have a response to your question about money to Dulwich Hamlet FC. Thanks for your patience.

The council has not paid any money to DHFC in the last 12 months, or indeed in the last 5 years. Prior to this the council did make a series of small payments to DHFC for room booking or pitch booking or similar services. These were each below 600 and they ended in December 2013. In the 8 year period up until that point the council paid a total of 7,300 to the club.

I hope that this answers your question.

Best wishes
James

Have you manage to find out what the design differences between what was consulted on and what is now proposed for the quietway in east Dulwich ?

Hi James

Are you familiar with the Bassano Street garage proposed development? If so can we have a meeting with you.

Many thanks.

James - please would you respond to my question above (25th Feb) on how much value, if any, will be given to responses from those who will be affected by the proposed CPZ but whose address is not within it- was responding to the survey a waste of their time?

messageRe: Goose Green councillors - how can we help?
Posted by jamesmcash March 20, 12:12PM

Dear all

I hope you are all having a pleasant week.

TheArtfulDogger - There are two key changes to the implementation of the Southwark Spine, which derived from the consultation responses. The first is the retention of a small number of parking spaces which were previously earmarked for removal, and the addition of three sinusoidal speed humps on Adys Road. The second is the introduction (subject to TfL approval) of a cycle early release. This is an additional phase in traffic lighting to allow cyclists to have a head start over the vehicles behind them.

As I said before, this consultation predates my time on the council so I was not directly involved in it.

Gerry - Yes I am familiar with the proposals. There is a drop-in event on 9th April between 4pm and 7pm at Dulwich Library which I am attending. If you have specific points to raise then please do drop me an email at James.McAsh@southwark.gov.uk

slarti b - Let me get back to you.

kiera - As I am sure you are aware, the consultation included a range of different questions. One of these asks whether the respondent supports or opposes the implementation of a CPZ. The other questions cover how this would be done if indeed it is implemented. My pledge to all residents is that I will only support the implementation of a CPZ if it is supported by the residents who live in the area covered. And I have secured a commitment from the Leader of the Council, Peter John, to honour this. Those living outside the proposed area will still have their voices heard regarding how such a scheme is implemented (if it is implemented at all) so they have not wasted their time responding to the survey. But ultimately the decision whether or not to implement a CPZ in a given area will be determined by the views of those living there. I hope this makes sense.

Best wishes
James

Yes, they are being removed to encourage crossing at the new raised junctions.

Can you give any detail on when the charges for garden waste collection will be introduced and what will happen about food waste collection?

Will the Council take away the brown wheelie bins for those not paying the charge?

Ive found the report and can see what the charges will be but have not been able to read the report but Appendix G indicates charges will apply from April.

James,
Removing most of the parking in CPR while implementing a CPZ is madness. Adding the extended double yellow lines and conversion of white lines into more extented double yellows lines into the mix will not increase parking space by 40% as the woman who talked about it at the DCC meeting and drop in session claims.
