Welcome to loveshadthames

the website for STAMP (Shad Thames Area Management Partnership)

STAMP (Shad Thames Area Management Partnership) is a collaboration between stakeholders in and around the Shad Thames area. In 2014 we agreed a Management Plan which provides a framework to protect, enhance and celebrate the area’s distinctive features. Our aim is to strengthen the identity of Shad Thames and make it welcoming for a wide range of community, business and leisure activities.

STAMP operates through a Stakeholder Group made up of local residents, businesses, cultural organisations, elected councillors and Southwark Council officers. Membership is inclusive – any individual or business who supports our aims is welcome to join. We only ask that, for individuals, they live or work in the Shad Thames area (or nearby) and, for businesses, they operate in the area.

See What We Do for more details

What we do

STAMP operates through its Stakeholder Group¸ a collaborative partnership between stakeholders in and around the Shad Thames area. We work hard to balance the interests of all stakeholders and to benefit everyone who lives, visits and works in the area. The Terms of Reference of the Stakeholder Group, along with our Strategy Framework 2019-2024 and an Overview of our approach can be found on the Resources page below.

Janet Morris, a long-term resident, is the current STAMP Chair, Sophie Hurcum is Treasurer and Deputy Chair, and the Secretary is Natalja Sigalova. Elizabeth Maud has taken over responsibility for the minutes at our meetings and Anderson Rose provides on-going support by sponsoring and managing our website.

STAMP summer update

STAMP summer update

Although we have been unable to meet face to face since March 2020 as a result of COVID, there has been progress on several projects in Shad Thames.

Local stakeholders have been working with Southwark Council to replace street lighting throughout the Shad Thames area and this initiative has been substantially completed.  We are also expecting to move forward with Phase 2 of the Shad Thames Business Network feasibility study before the end of the summer. In addition, work on the long-running project at Shad Thames Pumping Station should be completed by the autumn and repair of the St Saviours Dock footbridge is scheduled to finish by October 2021.

Butler’s Wharf Riverside Trust

Butler’s Wharf Riverside Trust continues their excellent work to improve the Butler’s Wharf Jetty. As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture, they held several events to showcase The Tide Line, the winner of a design competition last year.  An exhibition of the project can be seen in the glass case on the jetty throughout the summer.

More details of the Trust’s work and their plans can be found on their website

TBC (Tower Bridge Court), at 224-226 Tower Bridge Road

Redevelopment of Tower Bridge Court (with frontage on both Tower Bridge Road and Horselydown Lane) was scheduled to begin in autumn 2020 but this was delayed due to COVID.  Work is now expected to start during the summer.

Below are images of the current building and the proposed redevelopment for which planning permission has been granted.

22 Shad Thames, previously the Conran building

22 Shad Thames, which was the home of Conran offices until the end of 2020, has been sold and the new owners are planning a refurbishment.

In June 2021 Historic England confirmed that the building was granted Grade II listed status. The new owners are now working on developing plans which reflect this.

Shad Thames Facebook

STAMP and STRA (Shad Thames Residents’ Association) have jointly set up a Facebook group called “Our Shad Thames”.  If you are a Facebook user and live or work locally, why not join the group and be part of the conversation?
