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 Love Lunch Programme (2018, 2019), Totally Thames Festival (2015-2017) and Find your London Festival (2016).

News

STAMP winter update

Like all organisations, as a result of COVID-19 we’ve had to adapt what we do and how we do it.  Although we have been unable to meet face to face since March, there has been progress on some projects in Shad Thames, even if things are moving more slowly than usual.

We continue to work with Southwark Council on improving the street lighting throughout the Shad Thames area and hope to see implementation in the first half of 2021. We have also been able to move forward with Phase 1 of the Shad Thames Business Network feasibility study, with Phase 2 scheduled for early 2021. Work on the long-standing project at Shad Thames Pumping Station should be completed by the end of 2020 and repair of the St Saviours Dock footbridge should also finish by end 2020/early 2021.

Looking to new developments, the six projects shortlisted for the London Festival of Architecture design competition aiming to reimagine Butler’s Wharf jetty were announced in October – details can be found here

The winner will be announced in December 2020.

There are also two developments in the planning stages in Shad Thames. TBC (Tower Bridge Court), at 224-226 Tower Bridge Road with frontage on Horselydown Lane, was scheduled to begin in autumn 2020 but work has been delayed. Below are images of the current building and the proposed redevelopment for which planning permission has been granted.

A planning application has also been made to refurbish and extend 22 Shad Thames, which has been the home of Conran offices for several decades. The building has now been sold, with Conran moving out by the end of 2020.

Details of the proposed changes can be found on the Southwark Council Planning Register under reference 20/AP/2682. Historic England is also reviewing a possible listing of the current building which is shown below.
