Oval Ward Councillor Rob Banks has circulated the following news of the London Assembly Transport Committee's views on the Cross River Tram proposal, as he was ‘aware this was mentioned at the KOV meeting this week but nobody was certain about what had actually been proposed by the Committee.’ The sections below come from a letter from Geoff Pope, Chair, London Assembly Transport Committee dated 2 March.

Waterloo – Oval
2.7 The Committee supports Option 2 on this route, which runs down the Kennington Road and past the Imperial War Museum. This would increase tourist and visitor numbers, boosting the local economy. This route would also serve St Thomas Hospital, providing easier access for patients and visitors. The Committee would note that Option 1 serves the Elephant and Castle, which is already served by the Waterloo to Peckham route.

Oval to Brixton
2.8 The Committee supports Option 2. Both options on this route would benefit from transport priority measures and the regenerative effects the tram would bring. Option 1, via Stockwell, would best relieve congestion on the Northern Line and assist in regeneration of the Stockwell Park Estate. However, extensive traffic management measures would be required, particularly at congested junctions, to allow the tram to run down Stockwell Road.

2.9 Option 2 is a more direct route and would better serve the poorest areas in Lambeth, including Myatt’s Fields.

Brixton Town Centre
2.10 The Committee supports Option 1, via Brixton Hill and Effra Road on this route. Although Option 2 offers an interchange with the overground station, the Committee believes it does not offer as many regenerative possibilities. Option 1 would take the tram to the centre of Brixton, serving an area to be redeveloped as Brixton Central Square. Furthermore, this option allows the possibility of the tram being extended down to Streatham, which would relieve the pressure on the bus and tube interchange, providing better public transport for a badly underserved area.

2.11 The Committee would however like to see the possibility of terminating at Brixton tube station investigated.

Potential extensions
1.6 The Cross River Tram provides many interchange points, and will assist in the integration of London’s public transport. We would also like TfL to ensure that the tram is capable of being extended north to the Holloway Road and the Arsenal Emirates Stadium, and south to Streatham and New Cross. Furthermore, provision should be made to enable the CRT to link at Holborn with the proposed Oxford Street Tram.


March sees the 200th Anniversary of the Act of Parliament banning British ships form invoplvement in the slave trade. Although a year later the United States also made it illegal for American ships to be involved, the British Navy’s anti-slavery patrol off West Africa intercepted illegal Americna slave trading ships often flying flags of other countries. It was not until 1834 that Parliament passed the Act emancipating the slaves in British colonies. However an apprenticehsip scheme was introduced, to be ended in 1838 following abuses. Parliament also compesnated the slave owners with £20m. This year sees an enormous number of projects arouind the them of slavery and abolition, plus ongoing forms of slavery today.

Ellen Craft: MOJ OF THE ANTARCTIC: An African Odyssey
Oval House Theatre’s contribution is about Ellen Craft, who with her husband William, was a popular black American abolitionist campainer when they visited Britain. The play MOJ OF THE ANTARCTIC: An African Odyssey by Mojisola Adebayo, directed by Sheron Wray, is a piece ‘inspired by the wonderful true life story of Ellen Craft, a 19th century African-American slave woman who escaped to freedom by disguising herself as a white man. Ellen’s amazing story of race and gender cross-dressing is one of the forgotten gem’s of Black history, and the history of drag! Moj of the Antarctic extends Ellen’s amazing biography into a flight of theatrical fantasy where upon arrival in Victorian London, she finds work as a sailor on a whaling ship bound for the Southern Seas. Life on the ship is tough and even stranger is the men’s obsession with Black face minstrelsy. Eventually the ship arrives in Antarctic waters ripe for gruesome whaling, and Moj becomes the first Black woman to step foot Antarctica. This innovative total theatre piece incorporates video, text, dance, music, storytelling, song and stunning original photography created for the piece on location in Antarctica by …. visual artist Del LaGrace Volcano. Moj of the Antarctic is not only an allegorical historical show; it is an important ecological creative exploration. The performance highlights important connections between Antarctica, global warming, rising sea-levels, desertification, drought, famine and the coastal erosion of historical slave sites in Africa.’ Wednesday 7 - Saturday 24 March at Oval House Theatre, 52-54 Kennington Oval. Box Office: 020 7582 7680. www.ovalhouse.com. Free Post-show discussions on Wednesday 9, Tuesday 13 and Tuesday 20 March.
Details about Ellen and William Craft can be seen on the New Georgia Encyclopedia website: http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/nge/Article.jsp?id=h-622

The Vauxhall part of Prince’s Ward is to be a key area in the Council’s revised Economic Development Strategy being considered by the Cabinet on Thursday 15 March.

The third strategic aim includes ‘providing enterprise support services, to sustain investment into local community and voluntary organisations’. The paper can be seen on the Cabinet page of the Committee Minutes. Reports and Agenda page through the Community & Democracy section of the Council website: www.lambeth.gov.uk .

Are there any particular areas where rubbish or abandoned cars have built up that you think need removing? (Please state whether this is on an estate or a public area)

Sarah O’Connell (local resident) writes: The developers behind an application, Founders Place, to build on the land to the north of Archbishops Park have appealed against Lambeth's refusal of their planning application, The Secretary of State, Ruth Kelly will now make a decision on the basis of advice from her Planning Inspector, and following a public inquiry due to start on 19 April and which will last around three weeks. Much of the local concern has focussed on the impact the development will have on the Lambeth Palace Conservation area. Buildings and trees within the development site will be removed, including the former Holy Trinity School building to the north of Archbishops Park. Instead five storeys of private flats will face directly into the foliage of trees in Archbishops Park to the extent that a regular cycle of pruning will be required. The main concern is that the design of the buildings, with the main living room windows facing directly south into the trees, will cause new residents to seek pressure to have the trees pruned back further or even felled, so that they can enjoy sunlight and park views. There is no objection to development per se on this site, but a belief that proposals should be in accordance with Lambeth's planning and conservation policies, and not impact adversely on the park

If Lambeth lose this appeal, they may, as they did when they lost the appeal for a 40+ storey building by Vauxhall Bridge, have to pay the developers costs. So there are important issues, not only in the context of the Lambeth Palace Conservation area, but possibly in terms of Lambeth's future willingness to defend its conservation and green space policies robustly elsewhere in Kennington or indeed across the borough.

If you share this concern could you add your name to an online petition at  http://www.PetitionOnline.com/rclens1/

In the first instance we will use this petition to provide evidence of public concern about the impact of the development proposals on the conservation area. The deadline is 18 March. However the final decision will not be made until autumn, and so if you know of others who may be interested please could you let them know.
As the petition will be submitted as evidence to a public inquiry, we need to ask for your address. However if you are reluctant to give a full address I would hope a shortened form would be accepted.
We will also be collecting signatures on paper for those who do not have access to email. If you would like to sign or are willing to collect signatures - say if you plan to attend an event with people who are likely to be supportive - if you would be interested in attending a day or two of the inquiry or if you would like further details, please contact me at sarah@fergalh.fsnet.co.uk  or 07951 587 870. .

Update on cuts to Lambeth adult services provision.
