Fallen wall hazard - Green Team on the case

Nicole Griffiths and Cllr Scott Ainslie clearing up
The Streatham Green Team is pursuing Lambeth council officers to resolve the issue of a fallen-down garden wall causing a hazard on the corner of Fairmile Avenue and Conyers Road.

A local resident reported the wall, dangerously leaning and overhanging the pavement, in early January. Green councillor Scott Ainlie immediately raised the matter with building control officers at Lambeth Council.

It took over a month for a a structural engineer to visit and view the wall, by which time it had collapsed onto the pavement.  

Attempts to trace the absent owner of the property have so far failed and Lambeth's Highways Department has now been asked to deal with the hazard. The Green Team will stay on the case.
