Lambeth Council

Streatham Soapbox - Issue 11

Last month we put out a call about developments in the area that didn't seem sensible and/or seemed to trample over residents rights and amenities. We weren't expecting the deluge of response, and some from places we've never delivered to. We heard from regular readers; we heard from neighbours and we heard from people whose neighbour had picked up a magazine from a surgery or salon foyer on the High Road. What we can say is there seems to be a growing chasm between what the council sees as desirable development and what Streatham residents want.
