Wandsworth Council Seeks Views On Bellevue Road Improvements

Published: 25/05/2018

People are being reminded to take part in a public consultation into plans for a series of streetscape improvements on Wandsworth Common’s popular Bellevue Road.
The consultation is asking local people if they support a package of measures designed to enhance this busy parade of shops, bars and restaurants.
The proposals were drawn up following a community engagement project in September when residents, shoppers, visitors and businesses were asked about which improvements they would like to see.
This prompted the current plans which include 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. 
Transport spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “Now that these plans are out for consultation we’re keen to make sure we hear the views of local residents and businesses.
“The proposals were drawn up following the feedback we received in the autumn. Now that we’ve come up with some specific ideas we need the local community to tell us what they think.”
Residents and businesses in the area can find out more and take part in the consultation by visiting https://haveyoursay.citizenspace.com/wandsworthecs/bellevue-road-18. The consultation concludes on June 15.
