Dartmouth Road Consultation Feedback

 Following the publication of the consultation document by Lewisham Council regarding improvements to Dartmouth Road, the Forest Hill Society has responded with some of our concerns and priorities around the scheme.
  • Welcome more parking and longer parking times
  • Welcome more / better positioned bus stops serving the town centre
  • Welcome opportunity to reduce street clutter
  • Wish to see double yellow lines for the north section of Dartmouth Road, and improved parking enforcement
  • Concern over pedestrian priority crossings with unclear enforcement measures
  • Would like to see improvements for cyclists around Forest Hill

The full text of the response can be read here.

Dr Cotton has spent the last eight years researching these really important questions:

  • What will happen if we continue burning fossil fuels?
  • Will we be able to produce enough renewable energy in the future?
