To celebrate there will be music, drink and food as well as a chance to walk around the new area. In addition Lambeth's Dr Bike team will be on hand with cycle mechanics offering basic bike repairs and advice.
The initiative has come about through a partnership between Lambeth Council and local group Streets Ahead (first featured here in February 2012) and is inspired by the Dutch 'home zone' model where the needs of local residents, pedestrians, cyclists and children are prioritised over the needs of cars.
