Parking in Devane Way

Parking bays on Devane Way

Parking is very limited in Devane Way SE27 –  the road leading  up to West Norwood Health  & Leisure Centre. Most people access the centre on foot.

Next week the parking bays will be repainted to clearly indicate where parking is permitted for up to 10 minutes. Parking enforcement teams will visit from time to time. They will issue tickets to vehicles they see parked for over 10 minutes.

Barrier with buzzer

 

There are 5 parking spaces for blue badge holders right outside the Health & Leisure Centre. Anyone with limited mobility who needs to park or be dropped off must use the buzzer beside the barrier to speak to reception.

Clean Up London’s Air

The south circular – Christchurch Road & Thurlow Park Road is proposed as the southern boundary of a new Ultra Low Emission Zone –  ULEZ in October 2021. To have your say by 28th February on this proposal see: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/environment/air-quality-consultation-phase-3b/?cid=airquality-consultation
In a ULEZ  to avoid paying a £12.50 daily charge diesel cars &  vans will have to meet the Euro 6 standard for NOx and particulates;  petrol cars & vans will have to meet Euro 4 NOx; and motorcycles & scooters will have to meet Euro 3 NOx . The daily charge for lorries and buses exceeding  Euro 1V is £100.
central London ULEZ will start operating in just over a year’s time in April 2019.  It will cover exactly the same area as the Congestion Charge Zone  and the current T-charge zone which is charging £10 a day for vehicles not meeting the Euro 4/V1 standards.
The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) across most of Greater London 24/7 has been operating since 2008. It charges the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles but London’s air is not clean enough – hence the need for Ultra Low Emission Zones.
To check the emission level of your vehicle enter the registration number here: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ultra-low-emission-zone/vrm-checker-ulez

Clean air buses

London Mayor Sadiq Khan is cleaning up London’s bus routes. In West Norwood our #2,  #415 and  #249 buses are some of the cleanest with  Euro VI Hybrid engines. The #3 and #68 are new routemasters and have  Euro VI engines.

Some of the older buses #417, #432 and P13 with Euro V diesel engines are retrofitted with ad blue to reduce nitrogen oxides and thus to meet Euro VI standard.

Your Labour councillors are campaigning for all West Norwood buses to have clean engines. To support our campaign email Florence Eshalomi, our representative on the London Assembly  Florence.Eshalomi@london.gov.uk

The council works with the Mayor on cleaning up London and helps  to clean up our air by  promoting electric cars & charging points, more cycling and  more street trees.  Householder need to rethink wood burning stoves too. And we can all campaign to make sure the Conservative Brexit keeps Europe’s tough pollution controls.

Policy for planning application decisions

The Lambeth Local Plan  sets out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development of  the built environment development in Lambeth. The Plan covers matters from telephone boxes to housing, work places, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment and historic buildings. Together with the London Mayor’s it forms the statutory basis for deciding on planning applications.

The council is now starting  a 2 year process to update the 2015 plan. The first stage – ending on 4th December 2017 – is consulting on the issues to be reviewed.
