Your source for what's happening in the ward
Now that Spring has arrived I find more of us our venturing out into our yards and into our neighbourhoods. It got me thinking about the importance of our neighbourhoods and what they mean to our City.
Ward 9 is more than a ward of London, we are Riverbend, Byron, Talbot Village, Lambeth and more. Byron with a long history still maintains a village feel, home to beautiful Springbank Park. Lambeth also maintains its village feel, close connections to the agricultural community and has significant historical cultural values. Talbot Village developed in 1999 as an example of how future subdivisions would look with front porches, different styles of homes and integrated stormwater management ponds and continues to grow and evolve. Riverbend continues to grow, with spacious parks, a gated golf community, bordered by Kains Woods, the Thames River and Warbler Woods. Riverbend is also home to West Five, Ontario’s most sustainable community.
We are fortunate to have community groups like Lambeth and Byron Community Associations as well as several neighbourhood Facebook groups. These groups add value to our neighbourhoods, providing experiences like Harvestfest, fundraising events, protecting our parks, community movie nights and street festivals right in our neighbourhoods.
No matter where you live we all want to matter and belong. So, get out and meet your neighbours, form bonds to improve street safety, protect our environment and let's work together! If you want to find out more visit NeighbourGood London's website www.neighbourgoodlondon.ca and get involved.
I encourage residents to contact me at email@example.com or 226-927-0439 to discuss concerns, issues or what's happening in your neighbourhood so that I can better serve you.

New Parking Restrictions on Shore Rd near St. Nicholas Catholic Elementary School
Due to the continued parking congestion in front of the school during drop-off and pick-up times, and with regard to student and parent safety, further parking restrictions have been put in place on either sides of the parking lot driveway and bus bay entrances in front of the school. There is still parking in the school area, but parking restrictions were extended from the edges of the driveway entrances to reduce congestion, improve visibility, and increase safety. If you drive your children to school please respect the new limits so that everyone is safe. See the details in the picture below. Note: these restriction are now in place.
In the early spring changes will happen in the neighbourhood of Byron Southwood Public School, with the installation of sidewalks to make the area safer for pedestrians. Sidewalks promote active lifestyles and help create an accessible community and sustainable city.
A dedicated page has been set up with details of each street section that will see these changes and includes contact information. Click on the button below to access the page.
We are at the beginning of the final phase of engagement to develop an updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This phase will run from March 11th to April 11th. This Plan will provide an overall vision, direction, and guidance for making decisions about parks, recreation programs, sport services, and facilities.
Based on extensive public input last year and additional background research (best practices, trends, demographic shifts, and growth forecasts), draft recommendations have been developed.
We are seeking Londoners’ feedback on these draft recommendations in 2 ways:
