Our Petitions 2010 & 2011
The Save Clapham Common Group ran two petitions,
which between them raised almost 2,500 signatures, most from
people who lived or worked in the Old Town Area, although Lambeth
continually tells us that there was one signatory from Bombay and we
apologize for this if true. Was Lambeth trying to rubbish the other
The 1st petition to Lambeth - 2010.
We petitioned Lambeth so that;
There should be no bus stands
or bus stops located on road "The Pavement" and that no part of
the road "Old Town" should be closed off.
The 2nd petition to Lambeth & Transport for London
the proposed Clapham Gateway scheme so that there should be;
A - No Bus Parking Stands on
the road called "The Pavement".
B - No Bottleneck by Bromells Road/The Pavement.
C - No Bus Stops in front of shops on The Pavement.
D - No loss of overall parking,
("overall parking" meaning residents
parking, evening or weekend
parking on single yellow lines).
In this petition signatories were given the option to select all or
any of A, B, C or D. The vast majority ticked all boxes.
Our clear aims above dispel any accusations by the small number of
our opponents that we wish to scupper the Gateway Scheme.

Area, provided they do not detrimental to the bus service and benefit the wider community.
Below are pictures of our one-line petitions, which again were quite clear
about our aims.
