Neighbourhood improvement plan for popular shopping parade
Published: Friday 11th May 18
Wandsworth Common’s popular Bellevue Road could benefit from streetscape improvements if local residents and businesses back a series of council proposals.
A public consultation will be launched tomorrow (Saturday) which will ask local people if they support a wide-ranging improvement scheme for this busy parade of shops, bars and restaurants.
The ideas now being consulted on have been drawn up after a community engagement project was held in September when residents, shoppers, visitors and businesses were quizzed on the improvements they would like to see.
This has led to plans being put forward for new high quality York stone pavements, new street trees, more cycle parking, better street lighting, additional pedestrian safety measures, improved anti-theft security for motorcycles and the removal of redundant street furniture.
If approved, these improvements would apply to the stretch of Bellevue Road between Trinity Road and St James’s Drive.
Community services spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “These plans have been drawn up following the positive feedback we received when we first floated some of these ideas in the autumn. Now we need the local community to tell us what they think of these proposals.”
Residents and businesses in the area can find out more about the proposals and take part in the consultation, which commences tomorrow (Saturday, May 12) by visiting https://haveyoursay.citizenspace.com/wandsworthecs/bellevue-road-18.
People can register their views until June 15.
