I recommend that anyone going to the next meetings takes a look at the limited data modelling provided so far. Most of what is expressed on the Council consultation feedback documents and supporting documents is not clear on that.
We should request I suggest, the LinSig documents and other modelling that has been done for traffic flows with dates etc to be loaded on the Consultation website so that these can be looked at - not just the summaries that Southwark has chosen to present.
The council presenter said yesterday that these are limited samples on street because the cost of detailed air quality monitoring is prohibitive (mentioned Google car and £500k running cost). Perhaps Google will let us have this data so that we can see it in context.
You can see the summary of the earlier consultations and the 'supporting' evidence at this link:
Worth a look at the final pages of the Summary of Feedback document. Understandable that Mums for Lungs and Clean Air for Dulwich have sent in their organisation's views but the Dulwich Society commenting on our behalf I do find unacceptable. I pay my subs but I certainly do not give them permission to represent me. Does Southwark treat them as a consultee?
The Dulwich Society, 12 December
Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich
The Dulwich Society responds as below to the consultation on phase 2. The Society has a membership of over 1,100
households, mainly in Dulwich and in the area affected by the potential solutions.
The Society has been active in encouraging its members to engage with the issues.
While the Society has not carried out a systematic survey of its members’ views, it appears clear that the membership
is in favour of radical solutions to the problems of:
• traffic generated air pollution;
• traffic congestion due to an excessive volume of vehicles using the roads and junctions;
• through traffic from outside the area in Dulwich Village and elsewhere;
• road safety, especially for pupils getting to and from school;
• inefficient use of the limited amount of car parking, partly because of all-day parking by commuters using the railway
• general impact on the public realm from domination by motor vehicles.
I attach a list of local stakeholders which we think the Council should consult. We can help you with contacts (subject to
The Society believes that measures such as the first seven listed in the consultation leaflet would have the potential to
solve these problems.
The Society therefore supports the proposals you are working on.
