Good news. Hither Green residents working to make Hither Green Green better for shopping, pedestrians and parents of small children have arranged for  Lewisham Council to open an official consultation over the use of available funds. There is of course hot competition for the money.

The Hither Green Residents Group carried out their own local consultation last year. Unsurprisingly, the Western side of Hither Green wanted less traffic,  fewer bottle shops and an improved retail offer.

Lewisham’s  consultation on Hither Green Green opens for comment this Friday 29 May. The proposal document can be found by clicking the link.

Local councillors Stella Jeffrey, Damien Egan and Joan Reid have helped make this happen and continue to lobby.

However Hither Green Lane is facing significant competition for the funding  so please can you provide your support by also emailing transport@lewisham.gov.uk with “Hither Green Lane – Streetscape Improvements” in the subject.

Make sure you have your say to make a better place to live and work.
