ASSA have invited representatives of the architects Tibbald Planning and Urban Design handling the redevelopment of the South Lambeth Estate and representatives of Lambeth Council to a special public consultation event for ASSA members and other interested residents on

Tuesday 21st February 2017, 19:30 – 21:00
at St Stephen’s Church, St Stephen’s Terrace, London SW8 1DH

This relates to the redevelopment of the existing estate that abuts our conservation area along Wilkinson Street and the North of Albert Square. As you may be aware there have already been 2 public consultation events on this project, the last was on January 14th and leaflets have been distributed. Since then some of you have developed and shared views as to the merits of and issues with the proposals. This is a further opportunity to ask questions to ensure that everyone affected is well informed, and to help develop a representative ASSA perspective, should that be feasible.

Please note that our event is being held after the Council’s own drop-in planned on the estate on the same day, a timely opportunity for anyone who hasn’t yet seen the plans to peruse them and discuss with the planners. See http://estateregeneration.lambeth.gov.uk/south_lambeth_estate_drop_in_21_02_17_20170221

The plans are also available online at
http://estateregeneration.lambeth.gov.uk/south_lambeth. There will be two further rounds of consultation before the plans are finalised.

Lambeth Council has banned HGVs from using Fentiman Road. This was in response to a massive increase in HGVs in our area in recent months.

All those HGVs are now going to come through Albert Square and down Aldebert Terrace or down Dorset Road or Claylands Road instead.

Our councillors have told us they can apply to have an HGV ban here as well. But only if enough people sign the petition.

We urgently need you to spend 1 minute of your time by signing the petition here

We are working together with all the other resident associations in our area on this, including Fentiman Road. Please encourage your neighbours to sign as well!
