Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall Forum

Hello and welcome to Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall Forum's blog. We're proud to have amongst our members the Kennington Association, Riverside Community Development Trust, Friends of Spring Gardens, Friends of Kennington Park, Friends of Durning Library and many more local groups in the SE11 SW8 area. Individuals and local businesses are welcome to join too.

We're now independent of Lambeth Council (although we have some funding from their Active Communities Unit for running costs). Our members believe we can achieve far more by working together than we can working separately. We'd like even more local community groups and individuals to join us. Currently we're drafting a response to Lambeth's draft Core Strategy of the Local Development Framework and we want your views before we finalise it. It will be posted within the next couple of days.

We're next holding a public meeting for everyone on 9 June at Centenary Hall, Cottington St SE11 4RZ - 6.30 for 7.00 pm and hope you'll join in. We'll be considering the draft Core Strategy - what happens next - and also we hear there's a alcohol free zone being proposed for the Vauxhall area - we want to find out more about that too. To receive papers for the meeting, contact . See you there!
