Local MP Helen Hayes hand delivered a letter to Moya Green, Royal mail CEO - the text is as follows:
As you will know, last year, Royal Mail announced plans to close the East Dulwich SE 22 and West Norwood SE 27 delivery offices in the Dulwich and Westwood constituency. These proposed closures would have significant and highly detrimental consequences for residents in both postcode areas. Residents in SE 22 would have to travel to the Peckham delivery office, which is in an inaccessible location with no on-street parking. Residents from some parts of SE22 would have to catch two buses. Residents in SE 27 will be required to travel even further, to the Penge delivery office, catching two buses on a journey which often takes an hour in each direction.
The Society’s Licensing Group attended the Local consultation meeting on 20th February: A brief summary of their report:
The Council is continuing to seek feedback on the new road layout. The link can be found here. You will also find a report summarising the outcomes of site visits and road safety audits carried out so far - this includes recent responses to safety concerns from TfL. This report will be continually updated as further monitoring is undertaken. There is also an updated design drawing showing further changes to signage and road markings at Dulwich Village to address some of the initial concerns. The link to the online form is here.
The Mayor’s office has been consulting on a planned Ultra Low Emission Zone in central London. Starting from 8 April 2019, this will apparently replace the T-Charge with an even tighter emission standard for older less efficient cars and diesels. The South Circular is the boundary.
