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.

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, Sophie Hurcum 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.

You can download a copy of our Shad Thames Trail guide from our Resources page below. You can also sign up to our Newsletter at the top right of this website.

STAMP has organised a number of successful events to celebrate the area. We have participated in Team London Bridge’s 2018 Love Lunch Programme, London Festival of Architecture (2014-2018), Totally Thames Festival (2015-2017) and Find your London Festival (2016).

Stakeholder Group Meeting – 23rd January 2019

New year, new venue!  For the first time we met in the recently-opened Dixon Hotel and look forward to this now being our permanent base.  The Dixon was converted from Tooley Street Magistrates Court and Police Station, and our impressive meeting room was originally a court.  Our discussions, however, were considerably more collaborative than court proceedings and we welcomed over 30 local businesses and residents along with one of our elected ward councillors and representatives from Southwark Council.

We began with a presentation from Team London Bridge’s Art Director who spoke about the London Bridge Culture Strategy.  We then moved on to updates on current developments in the Shad Thames area, including repair of St Saviours Dock footbridge; refurbishment of Tower Bridge Court (the large office building fronting Tower Bridge Road and Horselydown Lane); Courage Yard (whose freehold was recently purchased by Southwark Council); the Streets Project which is expected to move forward in the spring; on-going work at the Shad Thames Pumping Station; an initiative to reduce traffic and create healthier streets in Shad Thames; and the proposed cancellation of the RV1 bus route. The meeting then focused on STAMP’s future strategy to ensure it can be effective going forward. This discussion will continue over the coming months with a view to agreeing (at the STAMP AGM in May/June) priorities and actions to be taken over the next 3-5 years.
