Cycling in and around Burgess Park
How can bike routes be improved?

 AGM Tues 2 November 7-8.30pm on zoom. 
All welcome

Ideas include
  • an orbital route around the park as a safe lit cycle route around the park; 
  • making the Wells Way the route for the Southwark Spine (rather than across the park);
  • cycle routes linking up around the park
  • other suggestions?
AGM review of last year, suggestions for the next year's priorities: woodlands, walkling, wildlife.

Planning and development
25-33 Parkhouse St

Last week the Southwark Planning committee agreed this scheme. At over 30 meters tall, it will be referred to the Mayor of London. 

The new proposed entrance way into the park was NOT agreed. Funds have been set aside for mitigation of the development impact on Burgess Park. FOBP has successfully made the case about the cumulative impact of the three planned developments beside the park.
FOBP First Tuesday monthly meeting.
Tuesday 2 November AGM,  7- 8.30pm
