Two weeks ago, Lambeth found out about the London Regeneration Fund, which aims to "help London’s high streets and workplaces by supporting projects that are innovative and locally specific." Up to £2.5m per project is available. The deadline for applications is this Friday. So they've spent 2 weeks frantically trying to put a bid together. I'm not 100% but I believe the site also covers the garages/sheds between the estate and the breakers' yard. Refurbishment of vacant Rathgar Road arches for short-term temporary lets is also on the cards. They'd also like to open one of these arches up to provide a pedestrian route under the railway to link up with Station Avenue. As per the minutes of the LJ Neighbourhood Planning Forum ( View attachment 77420 View attachment 77421 ) (further notes from Gramsci here) The site is council land and a Key Industrial Business Area Focus of bid needs to be employment based. Aiming for 100 jobs. Space for training and employment Possible outdoor gym and remnants of the farm? Studios and workspaces No food and drink (POP has left a bad taste and some councillors are keen not to repeat mistakes) Meanwhile Space CIC and LJAG are involved Lambeth want Loughborough EMB and LETRA on board too. I imagine we'll be able to get more details after Friday. The decision for funding should be made before the end of the year.
