Have your say on Lambeth’s plans to collect residual waste wheelie bin once a fortnight from next year. Recycling bins, food waste and gardening bags will continue to be collected weekly.
To have your say please fill in the online survey here:
The consultation will close at midday on Friday June 30th. The Waste team will be in West Norwood on Sunday 4th June to speak to residents – drop by the Norwood Cemetery gates SE27 9JU between 10am and 4pm.
Paper copies of the survey form can be requested on 020 7926 9000
As households recycle more & more nearly half of London’s boroughs (including Southwark) already collect residual waste fortnightly from street properties. Councils see more households increase their recycling when they change to fortnightly collection.

The council is consulting on controls over dogs. The draft scheme specifies where dogs must be on a lead , areas dogs are not allowed, out of control dogs, picking up dog mess and number of dogs per dog walker.
Check the draft scheme to see if your local park or play space is covered: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/have-your-say-dog-control-lambeth There will be a dedicated Parks Enforcement Team. Once the scheme is formalised as a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) police officers can also issue fixed penalty notices.
The closing date for consultation on the scheme is Sunday 26th March .

The council is planning a controlled parking zone (CPZ) for West Norwood’s town centre. An informal public consultation is due to start in July 2023 on the new West Norwood Central CPZ.
Implementation in December 2024. The attached map suggests how a CPZ might look for West Norwood town centre ( coloured green). The one hour 30 minutes free parking bays should be retained.
Other parts of Norwood are due for a CPZ a year later.
For more details of the new CPZ programme for the south of Lambeth see: https://moderngov.lambeth.gov.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=8323
Two thirds of the borough of Lambeth is now a CPZ – where residents pay for a permit to park in the CPZ where they live. There is usually an hourly charge, typically £3.94 an hour, depending on the CPZ, for parking in marked non-resident parking bays. Diesels pay more. Details of Lambeth’s parking schemes are here: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/parking
The aim of CPZs is to reduce parking stress for local residents and businesses.

Streatham Wells LTN proposed map Have your say on the plans to trial the streets between Leigham Court Road and Streatham High Road SW16 as a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in 2023. This LTN is to be called Streatham Wells LTN.
Through traffic will go around the area marked by Leigham Court Rd, Streatham High Rd and Streatham Common North. See map:[ pdf ]
To look at and comment on details of the proposed scheme please go to: https://beta.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/streatham-wells-low-traffic-neighbourhood-0 The deadline for comments is 12 noon on Friday 23rd December.
The “Street Improvements” section includes plans to widen the pavement on Leigham Court Rd near Dunraven School and opposite the petrol station – removing parking from #153-213. A raised crossing is proposed for St Julians Farm Road opposite Julians school.
Reducing traffic in LTNs make the LTN area into a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for walking and cycling. Rat running traffic through the roads east of Leigham Court Road ( eg Knollys Road, Broxholm Road, Canterbury Grove, Leaf Grove ) may reduce too.
