Creative ways to grow
A strategy which sets out the council’s ambition to support inclusive growth through the creative and digital industries.
For the first time the Council has taken a look at the current performance and future potential of Lambeth as a creative and digital hub. Our strategy identifies the opportunities and threats, the benefits of growth for our residents and places, and how we can encourage and support this dynamic sector. It is the result of truly co-productive work. Over many months we have brought together creative and digital businesses, education providers, trade bodies, young residents, thought leaders and social entrepreneurs. We have explored individual and collective ambitions. We have recognised the challenges and how we might achieve success. Now we have the foundation and commitment to make Lambeth the next destination and, in time, leader for London’s creative and digital economy. The strategy contains an action plan outlining a range of projects – from changes to planning policy, to workspace and initiatives to tackle inequality through the creative and digital sectors.
