Big Shift – May


As the weather is (finally) getting better, now is the perfect time to get outside! Lambeth’s Big Shift has opportunities for you to transform your street with a parklet or to help you get on your bike. See below for details.

Any questions? Contact us at bigshift@lambeth.gov.uk


Community Parklets 

Applications for Community Parklets phase 3 will be open from the 20 May to 30 June.

Parklets are parking space-sized parks placed in the kerbside. They are a space for community growing, a place to get to know your neighbours, an opportunity to take ownership over your streets, or just a spot to rest on your journey. Parklets can be customised by each community to best suit their needs, with successful applicants getting to choose from a catalogue of modular items to fill their parklet.

For more information and to apply - Community Parklet Scheme | Lambeth Council





Business Parklets 

Businesses can now apply to build a parklet in the kerbside outside their premises. Business parklets provide extra space for customers and help improve the street scene for everyone.
