Streatham is a part of the Borough of Lambeth, and it consists of three areas: Streatham Wells, Streatham Hill and Streatham South – each has an approximate population of 15,000. Arguably the most famous location is Streatham High Road which was voted the “worst street in Britain” in 2002 due to the daytime traffic.

As a response to that during the next two years the Council started work on Streatham Green. The Green lightened the load on the road and later won the ‘London Spade’ award from the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association for having the best open space scheme in the capital.
