A joint meeting organised by the Clapham Park Neighbourhood Forum and the Clapham Park TRA will take place on next Thursday 30 January from 7-8.30pm
. Kintyre Court on New Park Road is part of the Clapham Park development and residents and neighbours are invited.
The topic will be on the Clapham Park Regeneration Programme, led by Metropolitan Housing. The programme will not only have a direct impact on the Clapham Park estate, which has properties in the wards of Thornton, Brixton Hill and Streatham Hill, but also has a wider implication for those who live on the periphery of the estate.
The meeting will be at the Community Resource Centre, corner of Headlam Road & Kings Avenue SW4 8HF (opposite Sainsbury’s), Councillor Diana Morris, Chair of the Neighbourhood Forum, will be chairing the meeting and there will be refreshments.
The principal event in Lambeth for Holocaust Memorial Day this year will be at Corpus Christi Primary School on Trent Road tomorrow, Tuesday 28 January, at 5.30pm.
Holocaust Memorial Day is dedicated to the remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust and takes place on the 27th of January each year, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Soviet Union in 1945.
The Holocaust Memorial Day commemorative event will be addressed by Professor T. Scarlett Epstein OBE. There will be readings by young people and a performance by the Corpus Christi School Choir.
The next couple of weeks see consultation meetings for the proposed new free school on the site of Lambeth College on Brixton Hill.

Several residents of Kingswood Road have contacted Brixton Hill’s councillors about parking on Kingswood Road. As the Brixton Hill Controlled Parking Zone has moved further up the hill and the Kings Avenue developments have residents-only parking, it means that Kingswood and one or two neighbouring roads have the only all-day free parking in the neighbourhood.
The residents who have written to us favour the extension of Controlled Parking to Kingswood Road. This would mean residents and their visitors would have to pay for permits to park, but it would largely stop parking there by commuters and those from other areas.
We want to know what you think. Would you favour a Controlled Parking Zone here? Let us know using the form below or at s.coop/kingswood.
This Friday is residents’ last chance to comment on Negril’s application for a licence to sell alcohol. Currently operating as BYOB, the licence would allow the restaurant on Brixton Hill to sell alcohol with meals until 11pm each night, with an extension until 2am on New Year’s Eve.
