Changes to the team

After four years as Brixton Hill's councillor, Alex Holland is stepping down at the coming election. Alex will of course remain active in Brixton - from swimming at the Rec to leading efforts to retain the character of Brixton's markets.

Joining the Brixton Hill team is Adrian Garden. A resident of St Saviour's Road for several years, Adrian is currently councillor for the area around Brixton Road. He is standing as Labour's candidate for Brixton Hill alongside existing local councillors Florence Nosegbe and Martin Tiedemann.

New surfaces for local roads and pavements 
We're pleased to announce that Doverfield, Rosebery, Thornbury and Bonham Roads have been selected for resurfacing this year. Rosebery will also get its pavements resurfaced. These are all roads your councillors nominated after local people got in touch, and were selected after all roads were inspected by experts.

Last year streets including New Park, Trent and Sudbourne Roads were resurfaced. We’ve made and will continue to make record investment in our road and pavement network. In the next 4 years alone we will tackle pot holes by upgrading more than 130 miles of highways and footpaths. If you feel your road needs treatment or a pothole has appeared, please let us know.

Supporting cycling in Brixton Hill
Thank you to everyone who has emailed in about the Space for Cycling campaign that the London Cycling Campaign has organised. Labour has pledged in its manifesto to making Lambeth the most cycling-friendly borough in London. Here in Brixton Hill we'll continue to work on slowing speeds on our residential roads and closing off rat-runs.

**TONIGHT** Wednesday 23 April at 7pm Chuka Umunna MP is organising a Public Question Time on cycling at the Grand Union pub on Acre Lane. As well as Chuka, Andrew Gilligan (the Mayor of London's cycling envoy) and other cycling experts will be along to speak.

Cycle parking
We were the first borough in the UK to introduce secure, covered cycle hangars on streets and estates for residents, such as on Dumbarton Road or here on Trent Road, without sufficient space in their homes. We've had requests for more hangars from residents of other roads - please email us if you have a suggestion.

We are also working with Network Rail and TfL to ensure secure parking at both ends of your journey.
Pledging to work for Better High Streets with Living Streets
We have been working with Living Streets, formerly the Pedestrians' Association, to support safer and better streets. Lambeth Labour has already pledged to introduce a borough-wide 20mph limit. We have also supported the creation of the Brixton Business Improvement District with a major remit to improve the 'streetscape' of central Brixton. 

We are very pleased that Lambeth's Labour Council Leader Cllr Lib Peck is one of the first in the whole of London to sign Living Streets' "Better High Streets" pledge. 

We have already pushed Mayor Boris Johnson to improve the A23 and were able to get him to resurface the road and commit to reviewing pedestrian crossings with the help of local Labour Assembly Member Val Shawcross CBE. We will continue to push Boris on sorting out the junction of Brixton Hill and Acre Lane and other dangerous junctions.

Let us know how you can think we can improve local streets and shopping parades.
