London's Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is expanding from Monday 29 August 2023 - from the area within the North and South Circular Roads to the whole London Borough area (with a few minor exemptions).
Pop up school uniform shops are opening across the borough to support families during the cost of living crisis and to help them cut down on environmental waste. The shops offer families free items including clothing, stationary and other items needed for school. Families can also bring items they no longer need, which can be swapped for items they do need. The shops are open on specific days until 1 September 2023.
The Council has now published its plans to introduce the ward-wide Streatham Wells Low Traffic Neighbourhood in September/October 2023. The scheme has been amended a little from the original proposals to reflect some comments received during the in-ward consultation exercise.

There will now be further night time works on Wednesday night 20 September 2023: 10:00pm until 6:00am.
