Integrating transport in West Dulwich: Could Belair car park be available after dark for train and bus users?

By Alastair Hanton and Isaac Marks

Have you ever wanted to use the train or bus from West Dulwich but been deterred by the return journey home from the station or bus stop at night? This problem could be reduced if local residents could use nearby Belair car park after dark.

The Dulwich Society Transport Committee has discussed with the authorities the idea of controlled access to the car park after dark via a barrier in Gallery Road and a pedestrian gate opposite West Dulwich Station. This could be achieved by access via a card (like a credit card) issued to local residents for a fee.

Your comments will help the Transport Committee decide whether and how to take the matter forward. Please fill in the form below and return it to Alastair Hanton, 8 Gilkes Crescent, SE21 7BS
