In order to guide any changes to the Streatham Wells area, Lambeth has identified the following key aspirations:Create a more climate resilient neighbourhood Introduce low-traffic neighbourhood interventions to reduce car dominance and remove through traffic Encourage a shift to more sustainable transport modes such as walking and cycling Make the roads safer Improve local air quality Deliver the Mayor of London’s Healthy Streets Approach Improve the local public realm like pavements and green spaces
Some of the ways we could achieve these aspirations:Make the area more climate resilient through reducing the amount of ‘grey space’ (i.e. asphalt or concrete areas) and increase the amount of ‘green space’ for example by planting more street trees, parklets or low-level planting. Improve local streets and spaces to enable safer walking and cycling. This could be done by enhancing existing cycling routes, increasing pavement space, calming traffic and providing more cycle parking spaces. Reduce the volume of (private) vehicle and through-traffic in the area by introducing modal filters and encouraging a shift towards public transport, walking and cycling. Provide more crossing points and tackle dangerous junctions to make crossing easier and safer. Address uneven pavement and install more dropped kerbs to make pavements easier to use for all. Introduce measures to reduce air pollution such as more electric vehicle charging points, more cycle parking, and encourage the uptake of bicycles and cargo bikes for residents and businesses.
