Over the last few years, residents, the Friends of Streatham Common, SCCoop and others have campaigned to get long overdue investment into Streatham Common. The Friends of Streatham Common have held public meetings to find out what’s needed and paid for LUC to draw up draft plans to provide better facilities for both young and older children, within the existing playground and sympathetic to the area. The scheme also restores the lost changing rooms, and includes a new community meeting room and café with a terrace overlooking the playground. The Friends are now running the Streatham Common Consultation to show that there is community support for the proposed plans.
Lambeth’s ‘Cooperative Parks Programme’ consultation in 2013 found the strongest response was for a complete refurbishment of the childrens’ playground at Streatham Common, for better toilet facilities and a changing room development to support sports provision. Lambeth Council have now set money aside for this, but in order for them to proceed there must be another consultation and evidence of community support. If you support the plans for a new playground and facilities, like the ones shown on the proposed plan here, on Streatham Common, then please add your voice to the consultation before the closing date of 31st July 2015.
