Dulwich Society meeting to discuss “Getting Around Dulwich: towards a healthier, safer and more active future”. Air pollution and car ownership are high in Dulwich and many elderly people feel very dependent on their cars.
A parent, Dr Henrietta Collier, from Bessemer Grange primary school will tell them about the success of their street closure in keeping the school run at bay and encouraging more active travel. A complete closure is already in place around Bellenden School and school-run barriers are planned at Robert Browning JMI off the Walworth Road.
Dr Helen Wood, an academic at Queen Mary’s researching “The health effects of traffic-related air pollution”, MP Helen Hayes and Southwark Cabinet member with responsibility for Air Pollution reduction, councillor Richard Livingstone, will also speak.
More controversially the meeting will discuss Controlled Parking Zones and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.
