Since then we have been working with Lewisham Council and Sustrans to engage residents, park-users and schools in the project. The DPLN area has grown. We've put a temporary modal filter on Prince Street outside the Dog & Bell. This has had a dramatic impact on road safety.
Children deserve better. This area has a child poverty rate of 49%. Let's get an amazing playground for Folkestone Gardens for everyone to enjoy. Street safety will be improved for everyone if children and families are using this space more. Air quality can be improved with street closure, trees and greening.
We're campaigning to have an amazing new playground in Folkestone Gardens. This was Park Users Number 1 priority in our 2016 survey. The promised play never happened during the council's "Skate & Play" project in 2015. Please make a comment on the council's NCIL map and ask for a playground. Read more about the campaign HERE.
