Loading bay on Fernwood Avenue 'no longer on the agenda'
Residents in Fernwood Avenue were unhappy with the idea to place a new loading bay at the top of the road where it meets Mitcham Lane. It was originally part of the proposals for changes to the area at the top of Babington Road where it meets Mitcham Lane by Streatham Green and the Manor Arms.
The area is the location for Streatham's new fortnightly street market and the intention is to create a better public space for it, less dominated by traffic, more suited to host the market and other community events, and better connected to Streatham Green.
We have also heard that the deadline for consultation has been extended for a week at the request of local residents in Dr Johnson House and William Dyce Mews who apparently did not receive information about the consultation.
The aim is to undertake construction on site is late June-September to minimise disruption to the market.
