Malden Manor Healthy Streets Project

Kingston Council has listened to resident’s feedback about a range of traffic and highways issues in Malden Manor, Old Malden. As a result, we have launched an area-wide project across the Painters Estate, Malden Manor shops, South Lane and Sheephouse Way area.

Local residents have told us there are concerns around the speed and volume of traffic in residential areas, parking, access to public transport and road safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

A stakeholder management group has been formed which includes representatives from all roads in the area, local schools, local councillors and council staff.

We are asking you to have your say and feed into this group on the plans we are putting together which will directly shape the designs taken forward for consultation.

This website has been set up as a central hub of information so look out for regular updates.

    Overview:
    The Malden Manor Feasibility Study ‘Showcase’ will be an open drop-in session for the residents of the Painters Estate. The purpose of this session is to share ideas for design possibilities to tackle the issues raised by local residents relating to the volume of through-traffic using the Painters Estate.

    The design possibilities are focused on the Painters Estate, although the wider neighbourhood will be considered bearing in mind the ‘Liveable Neighbourhood’ funding bid that is being developed for submission to Transport for London.

    Objectives of the Session:

    The potential design possibilities to be showcased are not final or detailed designs. The session is not a formal consultation on any of the ideas, but is part of a wider engagement and the main objectives are as follows:

    • To understand the level of ambition for change from across the community.

    • To emphasise the need for compromise in order to arrive at a solution that will tackle the problem effectively.
    • To demonstrate that the data (both resident perception survey and speed/ volume) supports the need for intervention, i.e. 'people think there is a problem and the data confirms there is a problem'.

    • To test the level of support for permanent features to stop through-traffic using the Painters Estate (although measures may be temporary at first).

    • To understand level of ambition for tackling issues related to traffic volume on South Lane and Sheephouse Way.

    In addition, the ‘Showcase’ will feature information that relates to the ‘Liveable Neighbourhood’ bid – there will be an opportunity for the community to comment and share issues and ideas for wider Malden Manor/ Old Malden neighbourhood.

    Room layout and materials:

    Residents will be asked to sign in when they arrive. They will be provided with an oral overview of the event objectives and how best to negotiate the room.

    Residents will also be given a succinct A5 flyer, which will inform them of the following:

    • The design options are at a conceptual stage.

    • There will be a formal consultation prior to delivery.

    • Any scheme will be trialled over a period of months and monitored.

    • Next steps.

    The room will be set up with a series of A1 boards (on easels) and posters, including:

    • Overview of the project to date – including insight into engagement activities.

    • Presentation of data collected, including perception survey and speed and volume data.

    • Plans of potential intervention locations – to include, timed and permanent closures within the Painters Estate and immediate surroundings (i.e. Sheephouse Way and South Lane).

    • Overview for how a ‘trial’ would work.

    • A projector with Streetview (if wi-fi available).

    • Presentation of some of the comments collected to date.

    To support these materials, there will be the opportunity for residents to engage with these materials – leave comments, express preference for options etc.
