The Blackheath Society
Blackheath, with its Village and adjacent Heath, is a unique London environment. The Blackheath Society, one of the country's oldest amenity societies, formed in 1937, exists to preserve and enhance our area. Please join us in helping to do so. In this site you can see what we do, and how you can help.
The Blackheath Society has prepared an online survey, open to everybody (members and non-members) to assess the impact of the OnBlackheath festival on local residents and others who may have been affected.
How did OnBlackheath affect you?
The Blackheath Society has prepared an online survey (see above) open to everybody (members and non-members) to assess the impact of the OnBlackheath festival on local residents and others who may have been affected.
This survey will be available after the event on Sunday night (the link will open at 21.30 on Sunday 14th September). It can be accessed here, or through any browser at:
We will publish a report and the results will feed in to the Lewisham Borough Council's Post Event Evaluation.
There are questions on pre-event information, local attendance, perceptions of the event, experiences of the event and local business issues
If you were affected in any way by OnBlackheath please do complete the survey so your experience can be fed back to Lewisham. You may complete as many or as few sections as you wish but please do insert your full postcode to validate your response.
Members may be aware that a major reconstruction of the Lewisham Roundabout, which will continue for some years, is just commencing. This will affect any Lewisham Station users directly, as well as its indirect implications for traffic.
Lewisham residents should receive flyers directly, but details can be accessed via the dedicated website
Lewisham Station - Platform 4 Gate
The Lewisham Gateway construction works now mean a significant detour for pedestrians to Lewisham Station. This could be mitigated by the re-opening of the gate to Platform 4 - a campaign that the Society strongly supported several years ago. There is a petition in favour of the re-opening of the gate - the link is as follows:
