ASH are currently supporting the residents of Knight’s Walk in opposing Lambeth’s proposals to demolish their homes.
We are meeting on a regular basis with Lambeth and their architects (Mae) and proposing alternatives to their proposals, in the hope of influencing their designs.
In addition, on behalf of the residents we will be putting forward a representation to the Council in advance of their Cabinet meeting in July supporting a non-demolition option (probably mid June).
This report will contain the alternate proposals we have put forward as well as a set of arguments against the proposed demolition. Among other things, the argument will address:
- Political and economic contexts and arguments.
- Environmental impact.
- Impact on community (residents and neighbours).
- Architectural merit of Knights Walk and Cotton Gardens estate.
