Gasworks Redevelopment Consultation

We still know that more homes need to be built for Lambeth residents with a Labour manifesto commitment to 1000 extra homes. We want to see as much social and affordable housing as possible in the scheme and we want it to go to local people.

We want opportunities for young people growing up in Kennington and Oval, with strong competition for jobs they need the best start. We want to see investment in young people’s employability right now, not when the scheme is built in three years time, and a permanent job shop for young people so they can get the experience they need to get better jobs.

We know that the Council’s budget has been slashed by over 50% by the Tories so we think the Gasworks site would be a great place for the North Lambeth Library. We want a modern library on site with affordable space for community meetings, and that has sustainable funding from the scheme to keep it open and running in the future.

The gasworks has always been a site for employment and the local area needs people working here too, spending money with local businesses and creating jobs. We want a good employment offer to attract people here and grow the local economy.

The Gasworks is a huge site but one which is a block between Oval and Kennington. We want to see better public space, new through routes for pedestrians and cyclists, and an opening up of the area which everyone can enjoy.

We will be presenting this petition on your behalf to Berkley as part of the consultation but if you want to then:

This is a vital opportunity to create community facilities and homes for people who cannot afford the mad prices some developers are asking.

Libraries become increasingly important as areas are gentrified, and let’s be honest, this happening on an horrendous scale in Lambeth currently. Ordinary people have fewer and fewer affordable and accessible places to go where they can relax, read, use computers etc. instead, so much in this community nowadays is directed towards those with the funds to buy multi-million pound apartments – not local people.
