Lambeth council is consulting on innovative ways of running our parks. The Friends of Streatham Common, for example, are setting up a co-operative of residents to oversee The Rookery and Common.

Following a day time meeting last week the council has arranged a further meeting for Thursday 3 October 7pm- 9pm at Elmgreen School, Elmcourt Road, SE27 9BZ (near Tulse Hill rail station). Come along and have your say about th future of our local parks.

If you cannot make the meeting you can stil have a say online via a short survey on: http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/Services/Environment/ParksGreenSpaces/CooperativeParks.htm?sl=cooperativeparks

Friends of Parks

Do you use your local parks?

Many of our nearby parks are supported by  ‘friends’ groups  made up of local residents. With the heavy spending cuts imposed on councils by the Tory/Lib Dem coalition  government the costs of all public  services will be under review. If you care about your local park this  is a good time to  join up with other like minded people and  make a difference to the running of your favourite park now and in the future.
