Kate and I would like to thank you all for the support you gave to the campaign, writing to the Council, attending the public meeting, signing petitions, distributing leaflets… etc. None of that would have been achievable without you and this is a great example of local democracy we should all be proud of.

I thank the Labour party, the Libdems and PCS who helped us to provide the more than 20,000 leaflets we distributed since November 2008.

I thank also the Councillors of Northcote ward along with the Councillors of Latchmere ward who have shown great concern and encouraged everyone to express their view to the Council.

Last but not least, a special thank to Ruth who gave us the present in the picture above (I guess there is a message).

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly known as the CJAG website) has been publishing local news for over 14 years and remains committed to providing information about the local community and engaging in public interest journalism.

Our goal is to feature a wide range of community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, and provide assistance to residents.

We have always been dedicated to these endeavours and have no intention of changing. In fact, we would like to expand our efforts further.

Until recently, all the stories, analyses, and reports published have been made possible with the invaluable help of many volunteers. However, it requires a significant amount of time and effort, and we are frustrated that we cannot do more. There are numerous topics we would like to cover, but we require financial resources to provide regular information.

Therefore, we kindly ask our readers to consider offering financial support to sustain these efforts. Any contributions made will help support community and public interest news, as well as the expansion of our coverage in this area.

2 ways of supporting our project

Do you think what we are doing is helping the community and you want to encourage us to do more? We have set up two ways of supporting our project:

  1. Paypal: For one-off contributions, you can just use your bank card. However if you wish to encourage and support us regularly with a small amount, you will need a Paypal account to set up a monthly subscription. Click here to donate.
  2. Patreon: this is a well-known membership platform that connects content creators with supporters. Mainly, it offers financial tools that let supporters subscribe to projects that give creators a predictable income stream as they continue to create content. Click here to subscribe and support us regularly.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

  1. The picture of your model for the new proposal for the Clapham Junction site looks most attractive! It would introduce an interesting and somewhat amusing skyline with appropriate European hints. Moreover, the crusty loaf-like roof makes suitable contextual reference to the wider, global, credit ‘crunch’. Sustainability is expressed through the ‘disposable bag’, slab-block design and the ‘digestable’ cheese. How subtle, and suitably low-rise – the loaf that is.
    I give it dix points.

  2. The semi inflatable accommodation bag looks like 18 storeys at least to me John, although lacking in definition that would come through the introduction of fenestration, and, further, the externally expressed glass clad service silo uses a material which seems to clash with the overwhelming context of the conservation area.
    Whilst welcoming presumably recylced and green materials the paper cladding system may fail the thirty five year life demanded in the project.
    The cheese, whilst starting as a low rise podium (how sixties!), may in fact get much higher as time goes by, and may ultimately fail, so should be viewed with suspicion.
