Night Time Strategy For Wandsworth

Wandsworth Council are developing a Night Time Strategy to help understand how we can make the night time a better experience for everyone living, working, and visiting the borough.

From celebration and entertainment, work and rest, travel, safety, and enjoyment of public spaces, the night time is a place for many things that cover all parts of life.

About the strategy

The strategy will look at issues like conditions for night workers as well as the economic and cultural development of night time activities. It will include ways we can plan for safety, design, lighting and transport at night.

We want to make sure Wandsworth continues to be an attractive place for people to spend time at night, as a destination for socialising, arts and culture, work, sport and eating and drinking. The findings will be used to support our town and local centres to ensure they are vibrant, resilient, and safe, and to support businesses to continue to recover from the pandemic and beyond.

What counts as the night time?

We know everyone spends their time in different ways, so Wandsworth Council will be exploring the evening (from 6pm until midnight) and late night (from midnight until 6am).

How to get involved

The strategy will be informed by comprehensive public engagement, with a focus on supporting all users of public space at night, including women and non-binary people and night time workers.

Wandsworth Council want to better understand your experiences of your area at night. Please help by completing the consultation survey and sharing it with others. Click here for more details and the link to the survey. The consultation closes on Friday 29 April 2022.

Wandsworth Women's Enterprise Awards 2022

The Wandsworth Enterprise Women’s Awards will recognise some of the amazing female entrepreneurs in the borough across three categories.

These awards are designed to shine the spotlight on the inspiring work and achievements of these women, as well as champion their stories.
