The Big Shift Lambeth
This September the Big Shift is activating spaces across the borough! We have three different roads closing this month to allow for locals and businesses to use the spaces that are usually reserved for cars. Come along and enjoy the space!
The #LambethBigShift aims to help communities across Lambeth make the most of the of the new greener, healthier infrastructure being put in place. Find out more about our projects below or visit our website. Check back here for regular updates about current and upcoming projects.
Hannen Road Car Free Day
This Sunday Lambeth’s Big Shift is closing Hannen Road in West Norwood for the day. This closure will coincide with monthly Norwood Feast local street market.
This event is about reimagine Hannen Road as a commute friendly and more sustainable space. There will be a variety of workshops for children and adults throughout the day. These workshops are run by A Small Studio and Station to Station to gather locals’ opinions about how the space could be better suited to its current uses.
Come join us from 10am to 4pm on Sunday the 3rd of September to take a look, share your views, and enjoy some local produce!

Lambeth Council will be celebrating Car Free Day on Saturday 23rd September on Goding Street (SE11 5AW), just off Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, from 12 to 5pm.

Starting on the 8th of September we are closing Voltaire Road from Old Station Way to Clapham High Street. The closure will occur every weekend from 6pm Friday to 6pm Sunday, ending on the 1st of October.

Community Fund Parklets
Applications for Community Fund Parklets are still open.
A parklet is a repurposed parking space that offers residents a small green space, a place to rest or socialise, or anything your community would like!
