South London needs more trains.
Even if you haven’t heard of our South London Line (SLL) you may well have used it. It runs between Victoria and London Bridge via Battersea Park, Wandsworth Rd, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye, Queens Rd Peckham and South Bermondsey. It makes a neat U shape through the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, City of Westminster, Wandsworth and the City of London. It is a vital radial and orbital public transport link for these boroughs and we particularly value it because, unlike long distance services, its possible to find space to get on at our inner London stations and moreover, it serves 3 of London’s most important hospitals – Kings and the Maudsley at Denmark Hill and Guys at London Bridge.

Mayor Boris Johnson (Chair of Transport for London) has agreed to cuts this vital transport line for South London and has ditched all plans to improve services.

If this goes ahead hundreds of local residents, patients and staff at the hospitals who had used the South London Line service to get to Victoria or London Bridge will have been robbed without consultation or warning. Journeys will be complicated by hitherto unnecessary changes en route.

South London badly needs more public transport services, Camberwell in particular. And has anyone mentioned climate change in all this ? Fewer cars should mean more trains!

We have until 2012 to fight off the loss of the South London Line so lets show Mayor Johnson, Transport for London, the Rail Industry and our Transport Ministers that we are not going to be robbed!

Please sign the petition to Mayor Boris Johnson as Chair of Transport for London

Following the successful Car Club conference in June 2008, where Lambeth officers met with car club operators, car plus charity, TFL to discuss who Car Clubs in Lambeth could be taken to the next following the trebling of membership in the past year.

 

Several companies operate across London, Lambeth has four, Car Plus is an overarching organisation providing a single point of contact for car club provision.

 

26 recommendations came out of the seminar which council officers are currently developing into an action plan. Areas explored included expanding provision of car club bays to housing estates, increasing the speed at which car club bays are designated and parking provision.

Please back a petition on the Number 10 website calling for a change in the law over the sale of knives to the under 18s. A recent investigation in Lambeth showed that 11 out of 23 shops who were anonymously tested sold knives to the under 18s. This sort of reckless behaviour only increases the chances of more stabbings and violence on our streets. The proposed change will tighten up the laws over selling of knives so fewer shops escape prosecution if they are caught selling to under 18s.

 

More details and to sign petition visit, the petition is open until 8 November 2008
