Safer streets thanks to 20mph zones and our new speed gun

People told us they were worried about speeding on our streets, so we introduced 20mph zones and raised funds to buy a dedicated speed gun for our police teams.

Following the welcome introduction of 20 mph speed limits on all of Wandsworth’s residential streets, we realised that only through effective enforcement would the new 20mph zones have real impact and cut out dangerous driving on our roads. Your local Southfields Councillors Kim Caddy, Guy Humphries and Terry Walsh, launched a campaign to raise funds to buy a dedicated hand-held speed gun for our Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhood Team to use in co-operation with local residents who are volunteering their time to help keep our streets 
safe. The support we received was truly amazing, and thanks to the extraordinary generosity of local residents we raised a phenomenal £2,400 in donations. This has allowed us to order a speed gun and to pay for police training to ensure that our community volunteers are able to operate the equipment safely and effectively. We are currently waiting to take delivery of the new speed gun, so you can expect to see community-led spot checks coming to your street soon to catch inconsiderate and dangerous drivers and  would-be rat-runners.

Improving Public Spaces

Improving public spaces

We want to make Southfields an even better place to live, work and visit, so the Council is investing to deliver major improvements to our public spaces, especially around the station and shops. Following detailed consultations, plans for how we intend to improve our public spaces will be ready to share with residents and businesses in January.

HEATHROW seeking to become even more noisy 

Noise from an expanded Heathrow will inflict more misery in all parts of the borough with many areas set to experience significant annoyance from aircraft for the first time.  This will be most acute for communities in West Hill, Wimbledon Parkside, Southfields, Earlsfield and Tooting.
