Green Corridors in Camberwell – have your say!

Thursday 24 February, 7pm 

• Which streets would you choose to walk or cycle if there was less traffic and car pollution?  
• How can we link up our parks and open spaces to create routes not just for people, but for nature to link up?
• Come and hear about the green routes planned for SE5.  
Join neighbours and local community groups for a Zoom session to map out routes for Green Corridors. Let’s get ahead of local policies and planning, so we can be proactive and clear about our community’s priorities.  

To book tickets, go to:
The Trees and Green Spaces group is an initiative by SE5 Forum for Camberwell and the Camberwell Society

Graffiti in the town centre: take our survey 

How do you feel about the graffiti around Camberwell town centre? Would you like to see your council do more to remove it? Or perhaps it doesn’t bother you. Do you have any concerns about dog fouling on pavements? We want to know what you think so we’ve created a super short survey  to get your views so we could present any specific issues to the council. Many thanks if you could take a few minutes to fill in our survey here:

Cycle parking around the station
