Venn StreetHere is a notice we have received regarding loading and unloading in Bromell’s Road.


[NOTE:  This notice is about proposals to (a) ban the loading and unloading of vehicles at any time, at and near the junction of Bromell’s Road and Venn Street, for safety reasons;  and (b) convert a pay and display parking place in Bromell’s Road into a loading place, so as to provide an alternative loading/unloading facility for goods vehicles. Objections may be made – see paragraph 6.]

  1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth propose to make the Lambeth (Clapham “C”) (Parking Places) (No. -) Order 201- and the Lambeth (Waiting and Loading Restriction) (Amendment No. -) Order 201-, under sections 6, 45 and 124 of and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
  1. The general effect of the Orders would be to:
  • ban the loading and unloading of vehicles at any time on both sides of Bromell’s Road and Venn Street between the junction of those two roads and the parking places nearest that junction (this would be instead of the ban on loading/unloading which currently applies between midnight and 7 a.m. on Mondays to Sundays);
  • convert a pay and display parking place on the south side of Bromell’s Road, outside Nos. 40 to 48 Bromell’s Road, into a loading place (the loading place would operate at any time and be for the use of goods vehicles only for periods of not more than 30 minutes, no return within 2 hours).
  1. The proposed Orders are required because the loading/unloading of vehicles at and near the junction of Bromell’s Road and Venn Street is obstructing drivers’ visibility and it is therefore necessary to ban this so as to improve road safety. A new loading place would be provided to offer an alternative loading/unloading facility for goods vehicles.
  1. If you have any enquiries, please telephone the Council’s Transportation Group on 020 7926 1060.
  1. A copy of each of the proposed Orders and documents giving detailed particulars about them (including maps) are available for inspection between 9.30 am and 4.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays inclusive (except on bank/public holidays), until the last day of a period of six weeks beginning with the date on which the Orders are made or, as the case may be, the Council decides not to make the Orders, at: the offices of Lambeth Borough Council’s Transportation Group, 2nd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP. To arrange inspection please telephone 020 7926 0209.
  1. All objections and other representations relating to the proposed Orders must be made in writing and all objections must specify the grounds on which they are made and should be sent to Barbara Poulter, Transportation Group, London Borough of Lambeth, 2nd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP, by 7th November 2014. Any objection may be communicated to, or be seen by, other persons who may have an interest in this matter.

Consistent campaigning by Clapham Labour has delivered a host of new improvements to our local area.

Following years of inaction when the Tories and Lib Dems ran Lambeth,  Labour has successfully won millions of pounds from Transport for London which will result in a new town square in Clapham Old Town, adding to the previous development by Clapham Labour in Venn Street.

Councillor Haselden speaking about the development said ‘Despite Tory opposition to the project we have been able to drive through an ambitious project that will transform Clapham that everyone can enjoy.

‘Throughout the project we have worked hard to minimise the impact of the works on local people. However, I have been struck by the excitement of many in the area looking forward to its completion.’

By contrast when the Tories ran Clapham they failed to deliver any major projects and only used Clapham as a cash cow to use for projects elsewhere in Lambeth.

Clapham Labour has a fantastic record of driving investment into the area and that we will continue.

Nigel Haselden and Christopher Wellbelove

Clapham Labour joined a national campaign day celebrating 65 years of the NHS and protesting against the Tory-led Government cuts which are having terrible effects.

Labour Stall in Venn Street

Labour Party members from across Vauxhall came to support the NHS 65th Birthday stall

Despite David Cameron promising that the NHS would be safe in his hands, since the Tories took power:

–       4,000 nurses have been cut

–       Billions have been wasted on a damaging reorganization

–       Ambulance queues up by 50%

–       A & E waiting times are now at a nine year high

The Tories have broken their promises on the NHS and patients are paying the price.

Clapham Tories are silent on the brutal cuts by their government to our NHS and are failing to fight for our local services.

As part of our continued efforts to make it easier for people living in Clapham Town to meet and talk to their local councillors on Saturday 25th October the three councillors for Clapham Town held four surgeries over seven hours.

Councillor O’Malley started with the regular surgery at Clapham Leisure Centre. Councillors Haselden and Wellbelove then held the first ever surgery at the Clapham Community Project in Venn Street where we were visited by several local people with a wide variety of issues for us to help with.

Councillors then moved onto the Virgin Active gym in North Street, another first, where residents from Bobbin Close came to discuss concerns about dumped rubbish and graffiti which have now been reported and will be followed up on by councillors to ensure they are resolved.

Finally Councillor Wellbelove visited Heather Close sheltered housing where he met several residents, many who had concerns over increasing bills and ensuring that their payments were up to date.
