Cheltenham and Ivydale Road Resurfacing

Below is the text of a letter from the council that residents of Cheltenham and Ivydale Roads should have received today. Victoria, Renata and I are still working with officers to sort out the issues with the junction with Merttins Road - a more gentle profile on the raised junction to reduce vibration may be an option

Ivydale Road / Cheltenham Road – carriageway resurfacing

As you may already be aware sections of Ivydale Road and Cheltenham Road carriageway are failing. The Council intends to carry out a full reconstruction of these stretches of carriageway. As part of these works the road cushions and raised humps within the pinch point will be removed.

The works are programmed to commence on Monday, 15 November 2011 and will be completed January 2012 subject to good weather and unforeseen events. The road works will be carried out between 08:00 hours and 15:30 hours Monday to Friday and on Saturdays if necessary.

We shall endeavour to keep any inconvenience to a minimum and would like to assure you of our best attention at all times. Your co-operation with regard to parking your vehicle elsewhere during the course of the work would be greatly appreciated. This will enable the work to progress as quickly as possible with minimum disruption to you and all concerned. The ‘No Waiting’ cones and signs will indicate the extent of parking restrictions. As the highway authority we may exercise our powers to relocate obstructing vehicles at the owners risk and cost.

Note: for the Duration of phase 1works (Cheltenham Road) London buses will be on diversion via Stuart Road, Borland Road and the diversion ends at Merttins Road.

F M Conway, our partnering contractor, will undertake the works. Should you have any queries regarding the execution of the works, please do not hesitate to contact Paul Padfield at their Head Office on telephone number 020 8636 8822.

Free schools: A project cooked up by Tories who claim to be committed to social mobility has failed our children

(This post from Victoria about the closure of 'Southwark Free School', first appeared on LabourList.)

Last week saw the demise of yet another free school. Southwark Primary, which opened four-and-a-half-years ago in temporary buildings, will hastily close by February half-term never having made it to its permanent site, after being developed at great public expense. As Southwark council steps in to pick up the pieces and find places for children at other local schools it is difficult not to grind the axe about the government’s free school programme. We remain pragmatic that the programme is here to stay. However the government must reconsider the need for free school applicants to have a local and outstanding educational experience. At a time when many areas are experiencing a shortage of school places, and schools’ budgets are being cut, they must also stop wasting money building schools where there is no established demand. The story of free schools in Southwark makes clear …

A Proud Record. A Fairer Future

Vote for Victoria & Renata on 3rd May – Two Local Voices for Peckham Rye, with Labour Values
Being a councillors for Peckham Rye since 2010 has been an honour and we're seeking your support once again in the forthcoming local elections on 3rd May.

We are proud of our record since 2010. We have:-

- Introduced free swim and gym for all residents;

- Introduced free healthy school meals for all primary school children and now plan to roll them out to school nurseries;

- Raised standards across our schools and created more school places;

- We’re building new council homes and making existing ones warm, dry and safe with quality kitchens and bathrooms so now 97% are decent;

- We’ve kept all our libraries open and opened new ones;

- We have the best recycling rate in inner London; and we have made the borough cleaner, greener and safer.

We have done all of this while the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats in government have slashed the council’s budget and made it harder to deliver…
