Vassall to benefit from neighbourhood enhancement programme

Lambeth's Vassall Ward has been chosen as one of the first areas in Lambeth to benefit from the Neighbourhood Enhancement Programme of environmental improvements.

According to the Lambeth website "The Neighbourhood Enhancement Programme (NEP) changes how we manage traditional engineering schemes by looking at all the transport issues over an area - complementing any works, such as local road safety schemes and 20 mph zones, with other environmental measures such as improving cycle parking and cycle training, setting up car clubs, tree planting and removing street clutter such as unnecessary bollards, railings and redundant street signs"

A series of events are taking place around the borough.
  • 9 November, 2.30 to 6pm - Brixton Library, Brixton Oval, SW2 1JQ
  • 15 November, 3 to 6pm - Minet Library, 52 Knatchbull Road, SE5 9QY
  • 18 November, 2 to 6pm - South Lambeth Library, 180 South Lambeth Road, SW8 1QP
