Lib Dems call for a more walking and cycling-friendly Liveable Lambeth

Lambeth Lib Dems think local streets should first and foremost be spaces for people. Walking and cycling should become safe, easy choices for all Lambeth residents, and the health and wellbeing of local people a higher priority. 

We’re delighted therefore to pledge our support for ‘My Liveable London’, an initiative from London Cycling Campaign and Living Streets. A Lib Dem-led Lambeth Council would submit a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhood bid, based in an area with high potential for walking and cycling, taking major steps to prioritise people walking and cycling over private cars in the area. At the time of writing, the Lib Dems are the only party in Lambeth to have made this commitment. 

We are privileged to have some of the UK’s most experienced and passionate campaigners in this field right here in our borough; if elected we will work closely with local cycling, walking and disability groups to identify the best opportunities to secure and use this central funding.

Lambeth thinks again on Mamma Mia after protest supported by local Lib Dems

Lambeth council’s planning application committee has deferred the decision on Mamma Mia’s abysmal visitor management plan.

The committee finally recognised the issues which local residents have been screaming about ever since this idea was hatched.

There are concerns around anti-social behaviour in an area of social housing and the regulation of movement of coaches and taxis in the already overly congested Stamford Street and surrounding roads.

The decision to defer is to the credit of many groups, especially those local residents that spoke at the meeting, Samantha Young, Barry Hetherington and Hannah Quigley.

The campaign has been led by local activists and campaigners, and residents from Waterloo’s Resident Alliance, Thames Central Open Spaces, Waterloo Action Centre and Waterloo Community Development Group, as well as our local Lib Dem candidates for Bishop’s ward for the upcoming local elections, Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett (wearing the yellow scarf), Audrey Eager and Charley Hasted.
