• Protection of the raised flower beds (north end)

• Traffic light phasing at the Calton Avenue / Dulwich Village junction—excessive time allotted automatically to pedestrians, often when there are none

• Possible parking restrictions between Calton Avenue and Dekker Road to allow passing of vehicles

• Improved lighting along the length of the raised flower beds, (east side, north end)

• Overflowing rubbish bins opposite the park gates
