Works are about to start in Lavender Gardens to create a new access path to Asda from the Dorothy Road – straightening the pathway and removing the steps.
The main benefit is accessibility for those with prams or who struggle with steps.
And coupled with the new street light installed not too long ago, it’ll also improve sight lines and visibility.
As part of the works, the benches currently facing Dorothy Road will be relocated inside the park. The two pictures below are the artists’ impression of what the passageway will look like (looking away from Asda, and towards Asda) once works are complete.
This small project is being paid for by the Wandsworth Local Fund
– money the Council secures from the developers of new flats in the Borough as part of their planning permission, which is used to make improvements to the neighbourhood.
