Market 7 days a week???


Some of you may have received a letter from Lambeth Council detailing proposals for a market trading 7 days a week, from 8am until 11.30pm in Station Square on Railton Road.


The letter was very poorly worded and has caused understandable consternation and confusion in the community. There will be a meeting to discuss this and allay people’s concerns - details coming soon.


Planning permission has been sought from Lambeth to make the popular Sunday farmers’ market a permanent fixture. However, no application has been made, or will be made, for a 7 day a week market. There is no need or desire for this.


The planning permission currently being consulted on is to allow the following;

  • A weekly farmers’ market
  • The ability to organise ‘one off’ events


Public meeting: Planning the future of the Bath Factory Estate - Wednesday 19th April

The Herne Hill Forum has asked Southwark Council planners to attend an open meeting with local residents and business owners to discuss the future of the Bath Factory Estate and their vision.

The meeting is on:

Wednesday 19 April
7pm start (6.30pm for tea and coffees) 
Herne Hill Baptist Church
Corner of Half Moon Lane and Winterbrook Road

Please join us and spread the word as we’d love to have as many attendees as possible to ensure the council engage with us all and hear our requirements.

Shocking decision by Lambeth...

It would appear that Lambeth Council has decided to unilaterally go ahead with their planning for "significant regeneration", another word for demolition, of Cressingham Gardens at the edge of Brockwell Park despite overwhelming objections by residents and the community.   Cllr Jim Dickson, Herne Hill Councillor and member of Lambeth Cabinet, has apparently agreed to this without making any objections or comments at the Lambeth Cabinet meeting despite its impact of this potential development on Brockwell Park users and the Health & Wellbeing of the wider community. 


More written about this on the Save Cressingham blog, including Cllr Dickson's response:


Cressingham Gardens residents have also set up a community-funded Fighting Fund to challenge Lambeth council.  If you wish to donate:

Half Moon Pub to be developed, live music area may go and stable blocks turned into a private house

Dulwich Estates have made available all the plans for the redevelopment. They are available for download here
