Southwark’s Labour Cabinet announces funding for school crossing patrols in Dulwich


10 February 2015
Andy Simmons Southwark’s Labour Cabinet has announced funding for school crossing patrols in Dulwich.

The Cabinet has announced that £18,000 will be added to the council’s revenue budget to fund 3 lollipop men and women in Dulwich. The additional funding will be found through savings proposed by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, including reducing printing costs for reports as the council moves towards doing more digitally.

In previous years funding for school crossing patrols in Dulwich have been funded through the council’s Cleaner Greener Safer fund. With the announcement of the newly launched Neighbourhood Fund, which combines the former CGS fund and Community Council Fund into one simple application process, the Cabinet has agreed to find additional funding in the revenue budget for the school crossing patrols, in order to enable communities in Dulwich to use this funding to bid for new projects.

Cllr Andy Simmons, Chair of the Dulwich Community Council, said: 

“School crossing patrols are invaluable in Dulwich for local parents and children, so it is very welcome that the Cabinet has now agreed to ensure ongoing secure funding for the patrols through the council’s revenue budget. Providing secure funding for school crossing patrols also means that residents in Dulwich can now bid for exciting new projects through the Neighbourhood Fund. I would like to thank the parents and schools who have supported the campaign.”
