|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.
