CJTCP – meeting 16 August 2012: feedback

1 min read

As I attended the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership (business associations) meeting last week, I thought I needed to give a quick feedback on some specific points that were discussed.
In the minute it was reported that:

The town centre manager “issued a verbal update re the Delancey intention to submit another planning application for the shopping centre/Development  at the station.The Board were keen to be involved in the consultation and looked forward to receiving further updates.”

It means THAT.
Pamela Price has agreed on the sale of the Wessex House in front of the station. It will be redeveloped with retail, restaurant and some residential units and should keep in shape with the adjacent buildings. One of the previous plan is explained HERE.
The exemplar scheme (pavement at the Junction) will resume on September 3rd:

  1. Phase 2b should include the pavement in front of Windsor Castle pub, Mossbury Road and Falcon Road (up to the bridge where pavement has already been re-done).
  2. Phase 3 (2013): St Johns Road (full carriageway) up to Battersea rise
  3. Phase 4 (2014): Lavender Hill and St John’s Hill (up to crossing with Plough road).

Plenty of other things were discussed including the increase of street drinking, chuggers and urine (lack of public toilets?) at night time in some streets around the night clubs.

CJAG website has been publishing local news for more than 14 years and remains committed to providing local community information and public interest journalism.

We aim to feature as much as possible on community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents and helping residents.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

Until recently, all stories, analysis and reports published have been made with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it cost time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but we need financial resources to help us providing regular information.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and 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.
