Your views will help us to develop this scheme which is aimed at improving the pavement by removing and replacing trees causing noticeable defects to the pavement.
Bonnington Square has been selected for pavement resurfacing as part of the Highways Investment Programme 2015-2016.
Lambeth Highways identified a number of trees that will be a problem once works to resurface the pavement starts. Highways initial proposal was to remove all trees causing pavement damage and replace them with new trees. Lambeth officers attended a site walkabout with lead residents and thirteen trees were identified that will cause problems with resurfacing.
A local consultation was done by Bonnington Square Garden Association (BSGA) proposing that:
- Six cherry trees and a large ash could be replaced as part of longer-term urban renewal programme.
- Five gingkos that are heritage trees should be saved
The consultation was distributed to households in Bonnington Square, Vauxhall Grove and Langley Lane. A majority of respondents were in favour but there were complaints that this was not representative of the views of the residents as a whole.
