A step forward for streetscape?


A local resident who visited a council tent at Lewisham People’s Day has heard that work is progressing on proposed improvements in Ladywell. An engineer from the Wearside Rd depot explained that his colleagues, currently busy making improvements in Sydenham, are starting to model proposed changes to the Ladywell streetscape. Good news. Perhaps local councillors can confirm that the preparatory work is indeed progressing! Anybody else heard anything? TonyM

Great to hear that Highways are keeping LVIG informed every step of the way ;)

I hear there are big guns secretly built at Navarone.. and an alien spaceship in the Nevada desert .. but nothing about the Ladywell streetscape ..

Keeping residents informed has never been LB Lewisham's stong point (aside from the 'window dressing' of the Ward Assemblies). Why oh why do so many Council officers still treat residents as if they were aliens. Hey, we live here don't you know! - so isn't it entirely reasonable for us to expect to be kept 'in the loop'?

So, has this project been sidelined? Any news?

The streetscape project will start in the Spring. There have been various delays caused mainly by problems reconciling the various changes in level. Les Senior, the Council officer leading on this, will be attending the next meeting of the Ladywell Assembly to present on this.
