Controlled Parking in Herne Hill
Following requests from residents and our own findings in relation to parking congestion, we are investigating the possibility of implementing a controlled parking zone (CPZ) within the area enclosed by shaded red on the map printed overleaf.
We plan to undertake consultation on the controlled parking zone in two stages:
- The first stage will be to assess parking problems and to find out which residents and businesses in the area are interested in having a CPZ. Following this consultation, detailed design proposals for a CPZ will be drawn up.
- In insert date, a further consultation will take place with areas interested in having a CPZ to confirm whether or not they want to participate in the zone and to comment on the detailed design and operating times of the zone.
Thank you in advance for filling in the questionnaire. If you have any queries about the proposals or questionnaire, please call the Consultation Officer, Saleem Patel on 020 7926 8989 or email at email@example.com.

WARNING ON YELLOW PAGES DELIVERY
village ward safer neighbourhood team
Since sending out our November news letter, we have had some enquiries from people unable to find the survey on an extended swimming season on our web site.
Jeremy, Fusion?s Lido Manager, is conducting the survey to assess support for a longer season. We would welcome responses from swimmers as to whether you would make use of an extended season or not. Remember the Lido must be self-financing so only say yes if you really would make good use of the extra time.
The survey can be found here.
Links to the survey, our last news letter, activity timetables and othe current news can be found on the front page of our web site at www.brockwelllido.com.

42 bus latest
The long-running saga of the extension to the southern end of the 42 service continues (saga long-running, bus still short-running) but there are promising signs that a solution to a suitable terminus may be close.
The original short extension to North Dulwich station (as originally promoted by many residents and very much by several Committee Members of the Herne Hill Forum) will not take place, not least because this very popular bus often has double-deckers on the route: these could not negotiate the low bridge in Village Way).
Thus an extension from Sunray Avenue, via North Dulwich station, the new Dulwich hospital, Lordship Lane (to serve the many traders there) and on to Sainsbury's as a turn-round point is the option favoured by many, and among possibilities now under review.
TfL are examining the business case, bearing in mind that the cost of at least one extra bus will be needed. This is currently a very reliable service and it will be essential that there is no slippage in reliability. When the new Sainsbury's store-extension takes place in early 2007, improved bus facilities are planned.
This column, which forecasts that this bus will eventually be a double-decker, will publish further news as soon it is available.
VEHICLE ACTIVATED SIGN ON HERNE HILL
THE LONG-AWAITED AND CAMPAIGNED-FOR VEHICLE ACTIVATED SIGN HAS NOW BEEN INSTALLED ON THE ROAD CALLED HERNE HILL ON THE SOUTHWARK SIDE, BETWEEN HOLLINGBOURNE ROAD and RUSKIN WALK.
THIS SIGN WILL FLASH " SLOW DOWN" or "TOO FAST" AT ANY VEHICLE EXCEEDING THE 30 mph SPEED LIMIT.
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT AID TO ROAD SAFETY, CLOSE TO A DIFFICULT JUNCTION AND BEFORE A STEEP HILL. THE SIGN IS NOT YET "LIVE". OUR THANKS TO LAMBETH & SOUTHWARK COUNCILLORS FOR SUPPORTING OUR EFFORTS TO GET THIS SIGN INSTALLED.

Operation Freshview moves on to Herne Hill
?Operation Freshview? will see teams tackling graffiti and grime, removing street clutter, cutting back hedges and talking to residents face to face about local issues and how the area could be improved.
Staff from the council, police, fire brigade and other partners will be based by the entrance to Brockwell Park on Dulwich Road all day to meet local people, discuss local issues and provide information on local services. People visiting the ?roadshow? will be able to register for a free fire safety survey of their home by London Fire Brigade, as well as receiving a free smoke alarm.
Cllr Lib Peck, Lambeth Council?s Cabinet member for environment and culture, said:
?By working together with the police and other partners we are making a real, lasting difference to some of the more deprived areas of the borough. Operation Freshview has been a tremendous success in other parts of the borough and I am sure it will be just as successful in Herne Hill.
?I would really encourage people to come and visit the Freshview roadshow on the day at the Brockwell Park entrance on Dulwich Road. It is a great opportunity for people to talk face to face with council staff and police about local issues of concern, as well as getting useful information on a whole range of local services.?
The clean up in Herne Hill ward is the third phase of Operation Freshview, and follows the successful days of action in Coldharbour in September and Prince?s in October.
Successes in previous operations included issuing a number of on the spot £75 fines to litter louts, enforcement action taken against shops for not disposing of waste correctly, graffiti blitzed and hedges cut back, and arrests by police in relation to immigration, dangerous weapons and burglary, and a number of bags of pirated and illegal goods confiscated.

THE MYSTERIES OF HERNE HILL
The pavements and carriageway have now been replaced / resurfaced more or less on schedule, and first reactions of shopkeepers and residents are very favourable.
Mystery a) Who owns the fallen tardis-likemobile toilet close to Hollingbourne Road? (Of course I don't mean Dr Who owns etc..)
2. The X68
This column has always championed a northbound stop at Herne Hill for this express route non-stop to Waterloo, as it is a fact that the buses are not full at this point. There is also no direct train service. As there is no such stop the question was continually asked: why does it need to come through Herne Hill Junction at all? Mystery b) Have you noticed the route has pretty well gone missing from the road called Herne Hill? Three were seen in Brixton yesterday plus a couple in Tulse Hill. You hear these things here first.

Enter the Lido from Dulwich Road steps - Whippersnappers reception is housed in the recently excavated spectators? ticket office, also the way in for Yoga, Pilates, Meditation - the usual varied, seven-days-a-week all-year-round programme ( timetable on BLU web site). Try the park side to view the building site. Awesome! But it?s almost on schedule, just a small glitch when Thames Water arrived on time but encountered a problem when switching to the new main. Lido works continue and Thames have committed to complete the works shortly.

an excellent, lively, well attended meeting.
Thanks to 3 Fusion staff, Peter Kay (Chief Executive), Carl Bentley (operations manager) and new Lido Manager Jeremy Lake as well as Lambeth Officer, Paul Harvey who were there to update Lido plans, hear comments and suggestions from users and answer questions.
Positives from AGM floor included: good value season tickets; all staff fantastic; 6.45 opening and late closing appreciated; great food from the Beach Hut at reasonable prices.
Negatives included: short season; poor condition of Dulwich Road steps and floor of pool; low water level; prices; long queues; lack of signs explaining building plans to public.
Wishlist included: bring back barbeques; longer hours and season; all-year-round café; cleaner changing rooms; more bike provision; fast track entry for season ticket holders; involve more young people; be sure to invest in pool machinery.
Comments collated by Yvonne Levy were discussed with Lambeth and Fusion in October?s Lido Steering meeting.

- Chair’s Annual ReportThe Chair spoke to his written report, which had been circulated. He told the meeting that the HLF had agreed £4.5m for the refurbishment of the Park, which was a great achievement for everyone involved. Around £196,000 would be available for Stage 2 consultations. The MAC should be proud of all that it had done. The positive HLF response was a testament to the MAC’s commitment. As Chair he had been greatly helped by many members of the MAC and others, and wished to thank, in particular Cllr Clare Whelan, his Vice-Chair, Nic Pond and Laura Morland (EC co-optee) and Ann Kingsbury (MAC Secretary).
- Vice-Chair’s reportThe Vice-Chair, Nic Pond reported that after two years as the Vice-Chair of the MAC, he was stepping down because of work commitments and having moved out of the area. He had enjoyed his time as Vice-Chair and thought that the HLF project was extremely valuable. He was now moving on to become ecological regeneration manager for Greenscene in Lewisham. He wished to thank everyone he had worked with in the MAC and commended the drive and commitment of the Chair, Derek Hoare as one of the important factors in the success of the Bid. He also thanked Lambeth councillors and officers and members of the MAC EC.
- Treasurer’s report A written report and audited accounts were presented.

He explained that the purpose of the subcommittee was to mitigate the difficulties faced by small community groups wanting to run events in the Park. Through the subcommittee community groups would be able to apply for funds to support their activities and would be covered for public liability (required by Lambeth for any event in the Park) by the MAC’s insurance policy.The AGM approved the setting up of the subcommittee. Andy Walker was thanked by the Chair for all he had done for the Five Parks Walk and in setting up the proposals for BCE.
- ResolutionsMary Hill proposed the following resolution:”The meeting commends the excellent work done to date by the BPMAC HLF committee in bringing the Lottery Bid to such an advanced stage. However, the next stage takes us closer to implementation and demands that a number of important decisions be made that will influence the park for many years to come. We recommend that a temporary working group be established by this meeting to review the structures and processes for consulting and making decisions about the HLF Bid. The brief of the committee should be to recommend a process to- allow for greater sharing of the enlarged scope of the work- improve communications between the stakeholders, the committee and the Project Board- to ensure that the differing opinions on controversial issues are presented clearly to the decision-makers and that the decision-making process is transparent.The committee would circulate recommendations to all stakeholders and ask for comments and a vote should be taken at an EGM at the earliest opportunity”The Chair proposed that the meeting should note the resolution and take action on it; this was carried. It was agreed that Todd Strehlow, the Vice-Chair, would be asked to convene the sub-committee. Interested parties were asked to put their names down to be included.Following the resolution, there was a brief discussion of some constitutional issues. It was agreed to return to these at another meeting.
The Chair thanked everyone for their attendance and closed the meeting.
