Open letter to Green Party councillor Becca Thackray

Dear Councillor Thackeray

Your leaflet has just been posted through my door, and I was surprised to read in it that you have asked the council to to introduce a car exclusion zone around the school my kids attend - Jessop Primary.  

You say this comes from you meeting with parents, which is where I am puzzled. Perhaps some parents would support an exclusion zone, perhaps others would not. The point is neither you nor I know, because we haven’t asked them!   

Herne Hill Neighbourhood Plan public meeting and EGM

What is your vision for Herne Hill over the coming years? 

What does it need; housing, transport, environment, amenities, planning, economy?

Herne Hill is developing a Neighbourhood Plan that will be the blueprint for how development can take place in the local area. The Neighbourhood Plan is written by the local residents and traders who live in the area, thats you!

The meeting on the 27th is the start, getting your ideas, priorities and contributions that will make up the Neighbourhood Plan. It will be a hands-on event, everyone able to contribute. 

Aftermath - day after the flood in pictures + trader, traffic news

Lots of queries for aftermath status images, so here you go. Day after the flood and Half Moon Lane remains closed to traffic and difficult for pedestrians between Winterbrook and Stradella. As of 4pm today almost all shops both sides of the Half Moon Lane parade after Herne Hill A215 heading east remain shut. Some are locked up with water damage visible on floors, a few are currently being pumped. We spoke to the proprietors of Tales on Moon Lane who were just getting their cellar and shopfloor drained by flood services. They said they really weren't open for business because they still don't have power and there's no way to make change - but could agree to a sale if a customer had exact change. Also, they've removed all their electronics. Insurance will cover losses, but they said they weren't sure how much "work day" loss will be covered. Elswhere, Number 22 is shut and like other shops you can still see pooled water on their floor. Again no power, so lots of ice chests about. We spoke with Simon at the Half Moon Pub and he expects to be out of business for between 2-3 weeks - larger premises, greater damage, cellar still flooded.

Ruskin area 20mph limit zone

The attached link details the proposals for what is now advertised as a 20mph limit zone with speed calming measures.  This is now at statutory consultation = to the wider audience.  The information appeared on lamp-posts in the area but in many areas was removed shortly after.

Check your street that it accords with expectations as some street plans have changed since the previous ‘final design’.

Cllr Jim Dickson is pursuing enquiries as to why some plans have changed: e.g. Brantwood Rd. has gone from 2 raised tables to 5 sinusoidal road humps; the “island crossing point” in Poplar Walk does not feature.
