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.

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 London Festival of Architecture (2014-2019), Team London Bridge’s 2018 Love Lunch Programme, Totally Thames Festival (2015-2017) and Find your London Festival (2016).



STAMP AGM – 4th June 2019

Once again Conran hosted our AGM in their spectacular Shad Thames office. We welcomed some 30 people to celebrate STAMP’s fifth birthday, including local businesses and residents, one of our elected ward councillors and a senior officer from Southwark Council.

We began by considering our Annual Review, along with the new Strategy Framework 2019-2024 and Overview that have been agreed.  (Copies of the Strategy Framework and Overview can be found on the Resources page below.)

We then had a brief update of the wide range of topics we cover, including Shad Thames Pumping Station; St Saviours Dock footbridge; The Dixon Hotel; commercial traffic reduction initiative; Courage Yard; redevelopment of Tower Bridge Court (TBC); streets improvement project; ex-Design Museum site; and Butler’s Wharf Riverside.  We also had an update from STRA (Shad Thames Residents’ Association) who work with STAMP on matters of shared concern.

The Borders of Shad Thames: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 8 June 2019 (part of London Festival of Architecture)

A large and enthusiastic crowd joined us at The Dixon Hotel for coffee, pastries and an introduction to Shad Thames and the LFA theme of “boundaries”.  Suitably refreshed, we moved on to Tower Bridge Court (TBC) where we heard about plans for the redevelopment of this large office building spanning Tower Bridge Road and Horselydown Lane. We then visited more iconic parts of the area, including the Shad Thames warehouses and riverside, where we had an update about the Illuminated River project.  We finished at the LFA exhibition on display at Anise Gallery.
