The next Ladywell Assembly meeting will be held in person in the school hall at St Mary’s CE Primary School on Lewisham High Street on September 27.
It will be the first assembly meeting held under the new ward boundaries which now include part of the old Lewisham central ward.
Urgent appeal for volunteers!!!!!!
The Ladywell Assembly, where local residents can help shape the future of their neighbourhood, needs volunteers to help organise the local assemblies and support Ladywell-Live. The coordinating committtee which works with Ladywell councillors needs volunteers to help expand assembly attendance and ensure the assembly reflects the make-up of people living across the new Ladywell ward. Contact Assembly cordinator Adeyinka.email@example.com
Ladywell-Live, the community website set up by the Ward Assembly, plays an important role in discussing the issues that affect your neighbourhood (planning, pollution, parks, and local politics), promoting the work of community groups, local businesses and shops; writing about local history, and keeping you all up to date on some of the events happening in your area. But it relies on your support. If you have ideas for stories on the website, want to help run the website or write about your community group or local business contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Adeyinka.email@example.com
The agenda for the next assembly meeting will include:
Safer Neighbourhood Update – PC Andrew Dobson will provide update on policing in the ward.
Plans for developing Place Ladywell site – Officers from Lewisham homes and architects from the team involved will attend the assembly to discuss the proposals which involve moving Place Ladywell flats to make way for around 200 homes in four blocks of up to 10 storeys.
The council has said 50 per cent of the homes will be let at ‘genuinely affordable’ rents. The relocated Place buildings will be used for temporary housing for homeless families.
TFL Healthy Streets – There will be a discussion of changes to the Lewisham to Catford walking and cycle routes. TfL has launched a six month consultation on the future of the changes made to stimulate active travel (walking and cycling) and reduce pollution levels.
Other items on the agenda will be an update on NCIL funded projects and an update from councillors.
