Lambeth council’s “improvements” to Electric Avenue are scheduled to begin in October.

The council has published its final draft detailing its proposals for Electric Avenue.

The plans, which are expected to be approved at the council meeting next week, includes a revised layout for market stalls that maximises pedestrian space, the introduction of new LED street lighting, one way working (except cycles) in a southbound direction and the introduction of entrance features to the three market streets.

According to the document the proposals are designed “to help both market traders, local businesses and local residents” because “Electric Avenue in particular has a rundown and neglected feel”.

The total cost of these improvements are estimated at £935,000.

The money is made up of £505,000 from the Mayor’s High Street Fund), £180,000 from the council’s Borough Roads Investment Programme and £250,000 from the council’s 2015/16 Local Implementation Plan programme.

The deadline for residents’ comments on the plans is September 4, you can see the detailed plans here.  Email
