The council spends a lot of time looking at traffic measure such as CPZs and healthy streets. However, I think the problem is not just about too many cars, but healthy streets should be safe streets! East Dulwich residents should expect to live without fear of crime. How can we expect children to be safe walking to school, when there is such an epidemic of mugging children on the streets or in the parks. Parents will just end up driving their children to and from school. What is the council doing about that - nothing!

Just because you don't have a ready solution should not mean you are not entitled to point out a problem!

Agreed..... It's a shame really
They'll only do what benefits them financially!

It's down to the small people to pay for their cock ups!

Brexit is a fine example!

They have probably made a contribution actually. Just one example of - kicking out all of those people from Elephant and Castle to sell off their homes to overseas capitalist investors leaves some of those people feeling very Brexity.

Southwark council may or may not be responsible for Brexit but all the cutbacks filter down from the government

Brexit is just one example of where "our" money has been wasted!

Now someone's got to replace the money in those pots!
Why not screw us over for their cock ups!!!

Well technically, in the case of muggings and other violent crime, it's not really the councils remit to do much directly. That's the job of the police and central Government is responsible for the police. That'd be the central Government that have cut policing numbers to the bone...

The council come into it with things like social care, youth centres, support for deprived families and so on. But they get most of the money for that from central Government. That'd be the central Government that have cut the welfare budget to the bone...

My street is unhealthy.

It's filled with idiot parents looking at their iphones and not looking out for their kids.
They live in a world of social media induced paranoia and have no sense of actual risk.
They only feel safe bolted into a 4x4 armoured car guzzling fuel and destoying the health of the wheezing red-eyed street urchins that clutter their roads.

No doubt thier children will need gated communities and epipens in case they become "offended".

Southwark is responsible for brexit -the whole country knows it, everyone in the EU knows it. Stop lying.

See?? the Council ARE doing something about crime; they're cutting down trees so crims can't hide behind them.

Widescale studies suggest that more tree cover means less urban crime:
