Residents have been in touch asking if the Council can spruce up the stretch of shops next to Oval tube. This area - including the pavement - is actually a TfL stretch of land! But we've still been seeing what could happen to improve the area.
We've invited our local assembly member Flo Eshalomi to visit the area with TfL officers to share some of the disrepair of the paving - and some of the parking on the pavement that happens. In addition Council enforcement officers have visited the shops and are seeing if there changes which could be made to their waste collection contracts so we have fewer large commercial waste bins along the pavement.
We also think that the Vauxhall Business Improvement District should cover this area and the BID have had a walk about with residents and are considering looking to include this area when they re-ballot members. Watch this space!
