Wandsworth Living Streets Group Launches

Working towards safe, attractive and enjoyable streets

The Wandsworth Living Streets Group will be campaigning for better streets in Wandsworth, which means wider pavements, better crossings and comfortable places to sit down. They are aiming for “streets that everyone can use, a convivial public realm, quieter and more peaceful roads, cleaner air….” If you would like to be involved, the inaugral meeting is on Monday November 8th at 7.30pm at The Alma Pub, 499 Old York Road, Wandsworth SW18 1TF, opposite Wandsworth Town Station. The agenda for the evening is as follows
