Lambeth council wants to phase out the use of glyphosate (or Roundup) from April 2021. While trying out non-herbicide methods of weed control this summer 2020 (corona virus permitting) the council will continue its normal weed control programme.
In the meantime if any group of residents wants to weed their street and keep it glyphosate-free this summer please get in touch before the end of Sunday 5th April using this online form: https://forms.lambeth.gov.uk/GLYPHOSATEOPTOUT/launch
If you contact your neighbours please do so online or phone in line with government instructions to stay at home and social distancing.

All are welcome to drop in to see the council’s plans to improve our local residential streets in Knights Hill ward on Monday 10th December between 3.30pm to 7pm at Macintosh Court, 269 Leigham Court Road SW16 2SB. A paper feedback survey will be available at this event.
Safety improvements are proposed for Glennie & Broxholm Rd and Knollys Rd, York Hill & Royal Circus and Knights Hill, Cheviot Road, Roxburgh Rd , Bewlys Rd , Leaf Grove & Lakeview Rd . And to the zebra by West Norwood station, to Devane Way and Thornlaw Road. There is an upgrade proposed to the green space at Tivoli Road- Holderness Way junction.
In March 2018 there was a strong response to the council’s request for ideas on how to improve our Norwood streets. Speeding traffic is a high priority for residents of Knights Hill ward. These ideas have been investigated and developed into plans and the council is now looking for final feedback before turning these plans into action in 2019.
For details see: Lambeth website
