In defence of Central Hill

Piece by Architects for Social Housing (ASH) about Central Hill Estate.

“There is absolutely no reason to demolish the homes of Central Hill estate, but there are a large number of reasons not to. The first, last and most important of these is that it is home to around 1,500 residents — residents whose wishes have been completely ignored by Lambeth Council, but whose futures they threaten”

In defence of Central Hill

ASH are currently working with residents to explore alternatives to Lambeth’s proposed demolition of the estate.

ASH plan to show their initial proposals to residents on the estate on 20th February 2016. It was initially proposed that ASH would present their alternatives alongside the designs by Lambeth appointed PRP architects at Lambeth’s consultation events scheduled for February 2016, However the consultation events have now been cancelled. Despite initially agreeing to this approach (voted for by residents on the Resident Engagement Panel) Lambeth have now said that they wish to meet with ASH privately. ASH do not accept this approach and have stated that they will not do business behind closed doors. More information to follow…

    Thanks very much for today’s meeting. It was the best one I have been to so far – and of course it’s a no-brainer to go with the ASH plan for the estate. (I live on the estate in Romany Prospect).

    Community engagement seems to me to be at the top of the list, and this always seems difficult to do. Please add me to your contacts.

    Thanks, Nicola, for everything you are doing, it’s appreciated.
