You said, we did: Streatham Hill progress


Local Liberal Democrats Matthew Bryant and Donna Harris are campaigners who want to show up for you, championing the issues that matter most to ensure we finally have a council that works for you.

You shared concerns with us, and we took action.

Read below our updates on how Local Lib Dems are responding to residents' concerns.

Campaigners understanding key issues in Streatham Hill

You said, we did:

● We received reports of blocked drains in Kirkstall Road and Hydethorpe Road, often problematic in the Winter months. We’ve asked the council to ensure local street care teams check that drain grilles are not blocked by leaves and debris.

● We previously reported concerns raised with us about anti-social behaviour near shops on Streatham Hill with the Labour council. We have heard back from the Ward Sergeant for Streatham and a meeting is being arranged. We will be looking at what further action the police can take to tackle loitering, street drinking and threatening behaviour.

● TfL is due to reduce the frequency of 133 services linking Streatham Hill to London Bridge and the City, presenting another blow to local transport. Local Liberal Democrats have called for the cut to be reversed, especially as we face months of closure of the City branch Northern Line and reduced Victoria train service from Streatham Hill.

● Labour-run Lambeth Council is falling behind other boroughs in providing electric car charging points - planning for only 200 by the end of the year for over 130,000 households. To make sure Lambeth has a similar number of charging points to the significant number in Boroughs nearby, Donna and Matthew have called for there to be an electric charging point a 5-minute walk away from all Lambeth residents.

● Everyone has the right to a life free from fear and harassment - we know you stand together with us in caring about ending violence against women and girls so we’re bringing together your views in a Borough-wide survey so we can tackle the issue together (link to QR code)
