Southwark Council has launched an online survey to gather views on a proposal to close Mermaid Court to through motor traffic.
"Mermaid Court is currently one-way from Borough High Street, and many of the vehicles that access the street use it to avoid the junction with Great Dover Street by St George the Martyr Church," says the council in its online consultation materials.
"The benefits of doing this include freeing up space to make it a safer space for people to walk or cycle through, allowing more space to support physical distancing, providing more space for on-street greening, cycle parking or seating."
The online survey is open until Monday 31 May.
