Friends of Lambeth Walk Doorstep Green
Have your say about how the Green is run……
Lambeth Walk Doorstep Green (the Green) is a wonderful community open space bounded by Lambeth Walk, Fitzalan Street, Lollard Street and Kennington Road. It also includes the nature garden outside Roots & Shoots on Fitzalan Street.
If you live or work in those streets, the Ethelred Estate or in other nearby roads and premises you will already know that the Green is a lovely natural space for us all to enjoy. But it needs to be treasured and kept that way.
It was saved from the threat of development some ten years ago and now has mature trees, some wild flower areas, a children’s playground and extensive grassed areas. It is used by local families and schools, by dog owners and many others who enjoy it as an oasis of nature and calm near the busy centre of London.
Whilst the status of the Green is now protected and recognised by the London Borough of Lambeth, it still needs to be maintained and developed to ensure it remains the safe and attractive shared place it is intended to be.
With extensive new developments ongoing on the old Lilian Baylis site and proposed on Lollard Street (as well as others nearer the river) it is important that existing and new local residents’ views are foremost in protecting and guiding the future of the Green.
How you can get involved…
The LWDG Friends Group is currently being re-formed by some local residents and users of the Green. It will be important to get as wide involvement as possible. If you would like to get involved in any way please get in touch. Involvement can range from just keeping informed by newsletters and providing feedback to more active participation in representing views to and working with the local authority or helping to organise events.
