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 can be found here and an overview of our approach can be found here.

Janet Morris, a long-term resident, is the current STAMP Chair, Dr Jeffrey Easton is Treasurer and Deputy Chair, and the Secretary is Natalja Sigalova. Heather Noon continues to take the minutes at our meetings and Anderson Rose provides on-going support by sponsoring and managing our website. We also have smaller working groups which focus on specific initiatives including Friends of Butlers Wharf Riverside; public realm and greening projects; and traffic consolidation/streets improvements.

STAMP has organised a number of successful events to celebrate the area. We have been part of London Festival of Architecture for four years (2014-2017) and Totally Thames Festival for three years (2015-2017). We also participated in Find your London Festival 2016.

Stakeholder Group Meeting –Monday 15 January 2018

We held our first regular Stakeholder Group meeting of 2018 in The Coal Shed restaurant at One Tower Bridge.  The new year began well with a good turnout of local residents and businesses, as well as Anood Al-Samerai (one of our elected Riverside councillors) and guest speakers from Southwark Council’s Highways team and from Thames Water.  It was particularly interesting to welcome stakeholders who’d been involved in the area since regeneration began in the early 1980s, along with newcomers to Shad Thames.

As usual, we had a full agenda.  We started with an update from the Council about the Shad Thames Streets Improvements Project, an initiative that has been running for several years and which should deliver some tangible results during 2018.  We also heard from Thames Water about work at the Shad Thames Pumping Station in connection with the Thames Tideway Tunnel.  This work is scheduled to take place between March and September.

The agenda then moved to updates for a number of on-going matters, including improvements on Butler’s Wharf Riverside; work at The Circle; St Saviours Dock footbridge repair; construction of the Dixon Hotel (on the old Tooley Street Magistrates Court site – scheduled to open before the end of 2018); Courage Yard refurbishment news; and the Design Museum site (now owned by Zaha Hadid Foundation).

The meeting concluded with a review of how STAMP operates, including its Stakeholder Group meetings, communications and stakeholder participation.  There were a number of good suggestions to help us have even more impact.  The meeting affirmed that, thanks to the valuable contributions of local stakeholders and STAMP’s constructive and collaborative approach, we have created an effective forum which makes a real difference in maintaining, enhancing and celebrating the Shad Thames area.
