Councillor Jayne McCoy, Chair of Housing, Economy and Business Committee said:

“People in Rosehill and St Helier are rightly proud of their area and the local culture and community. These events are an opportunity for residents to discuss what changes we think would lead to the biggest improvements for our community. 

“It might be that people want to expand existing projects like the St Helier and Tweedale community orchard, revive and reinvigorate a local tradition like the Rosehill market or start something entirely new - the canvas is blank and ready to be brought to life with local ideas and visions. We have ambitious plans and I’m sure residents do too. I encourage anyone with an idea - no matter how big or small - to share it.”

Following previous engagement with local people, the Council has already committed to improving making some changes in the area, including:

-Stavordale Road will be made a 20mph road (agreed through St Helier, The Wrythe and Wandle Valley Local Committee)

-Junction improvement at Wrythe Lane and Tweedale Road (agreed through St Helier, The Wrythe and Wandle Valley Local Committee) 

-Planning permission has been given for the Wrythe Lane garage and Assembly Walk sites and work to build new housing is expected to start by late 2020

-Rent-free lease of Hill House to Community Action Sutton to secure long-term community use of the site
