Stakeholder Group AGM 10 May 2016
We celebrated STAMP’s second birthday at our AGM, kindly hosted by Conran and Partners in their Shad Thames office. It was great to meet in one of the spaces that signalled the ambitious regeneration of the area begun by Sir Terence Conran in the 1980s.
We welcomed some 20 people, including local businesses, local residents, one of our Riverside Ward councillors, and a senior representative from Southwark Council who was a key player in creating the framework for STAMP. Focusing on the bigger picture, we had an update on the STAMP Management Plan (approved by the Council in April 2014 – you can download a copy from our Resources page below). Team London Bridge also gave a presentation on their London Bridge Plan which is closely aligned with what we are trying to achieve in the Shad Thames area. We discussed refining our vision for the area, as well as on-going developments including the Magistrates Court hotel; Tower Bridge Piazza; Shad Thames Streets Project; departure of the Design Museum at the end of June; and the Tower Bridge Road pedestrian crossing.
The next Stakeholder Group meeting will be on Tuesday 19 July at Anise Gallery, 13a Shad Thames, SE1 2PU.
Shad Thames Trail Pop Up at Le Pont de la Tour bar 19 March 2016
We recently updated our self-guided Shad Thames Trail to help people explore the area on their own.
To launch the new Guide, we held a Pop Up at Le Pont de la Tour bar on Saturday 19 March as part of Find Your London festival (organised by City Hall). Visitors were invited to drop in, collect a free copy of the Trail, enjoy a coffee and chat with local enthusiasts. Over 50 people came along and another 60 emailed to request a copy of the Trail.
You can now download your copy of the Shad Thames Trail directly from the Resources page below.
