Big Shift News

Be part of the Big Shift to greener and healthier travel around Lambeth. Redesign Telegraph Passage, make free e-cargo bike trips from F Mondays, or create a community parklet on your road.

Our new #LambethBigShift active travel programme brings together several initiatives to help residents, businesses and schools choose cleaner and healthier ways of getting around the borough - such as walking, cycling and wheeling.

Find out more below or on our websiteabout how you can get involved in the Big Shift today and check back here for more information about up-and-coming projects.

Your Streets Your Way

Get creative, reimagine your streets and have the chance to win up to £750.

Lambeth Council, in conjunction with We Made That, are launching the second instalment of the Your Streets Your Way street design competition.

Your Streets Your Way gives those who live, work or travel through the borough, the opportunity to transform one of 10 locations. The competition gives the opportunity to create spaces to spend more time, connect with each other or to make it more attractive to explore by walking, wheeling or cycling.

The locations are:

  • Loughborough Road (Loughborough Junction)
  • Matrimony Place (Larkhall Rise)
  • Bromfelde Walk (Larkhall Rise)
  • Russell’s Footpath (Streatham Wells)
  • Leithcote Path (Streatham Wells)
  • Telegraph Passage (Brixton Hill)
  • Chestnut Road (West Dulwich)
  • 297-299 Coldharbour Lane (Angell Town)
  • 85 Angell Road (Angell Town)
  • St Martin’s pedestrian passage (Stockwell)
  • Telegraph Passage was chosen based on feedback from the Brixton Hill LTN consultations with local people.

    Find out more information and apply here.

    The first Your Streets Your Way competition was launched in 2021 and 8 locations were reimagined by our competition winners. 5 of the transformations have now been completed and the last 3 are in development. You can see the progress of the sites from Your Streets Your Way 2021.

  • upCYCLE LDN bike repair workshops

    Lambeth Council has partnered with upCYCLE LDN to teach young people how to fix their bikes. This FREE basic bike maintenance course is aimed at 13- to 18-year-olds and will take place during the Easter break.

    During the day you will learn how to set up a bike to fit, fix a puncture, adjust brakes and gears, and lubricate your chain.

    Drinks and food will be provided on the day. All you need to bring is you, we'll provide everything else! Repairing bikes can get a bit messy, so make sure you wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirt on.

    Find out more information and apply here.

    Cycle Hangars

    Lambeth Council are rolling out our next phase of cycle hangars onto your local streets. The 48 hangers will be installed from March – May 2023. This is just the beginning. We are working towards our commitment of 5000 more spaces by 2026.

    To suggest a location for a cycle hangar or if you are interested in space in an existing hangar find out more here.

    Community Influencers

    We have a team of brilliant, friendly volunteers who are passionate about getting more people to try cycling as a green and healthy way to travel around Lambeth.

    They’re all Lambeth residents, so they know the borough well.

    Many of our volunteers didn’t cycle at first. They wanted to, but they didn’t have a bike, didn’t feel confident out on the road or hadn’t even thought about it until we introduced the Community Influencer Programme.

    This spring, you’ll be able to meet the Community Influencers at events across the borough. Watch this space for further details soon!

    Lambeth Climate News

    We send a monthly climate change, clean transport and sustainability newsletter, which includes the latest on the Big Shift, as well as lots of other news and opportunities.
