Anti-Social Behaviour on the Kennington Park Extension

We are all aware of the major disturbances that we had to endure during the summer of 2020, with noise, all night parties, and general disruption to our peaceful existence last year. With the Easter break approaching,  the easing of lockdown, and better weather on the horizon, we are expecting similar breaches and anti-social behaviour to begin again. We have raised these issues with various departments within Southwark, and a number of Zoom meetings have taken place to try and develop some coordinated strategy across Southwark & Lambeth to minimise the problem this year. Southwark have distributed a letter to all residents, a copy of which can be found here.
