We want your views on our Draft Strategy for improving Streatham including changes to the town centre boundary. Please tell us your thoughts by reviewing our draft strategy and completing our online survey below. The consultation runs from 27 June to 23 August 2019.
The council is committed to ensuring Streatham thrives and grows as a major town centre, providing economic and social opportunities for its adjoining neighbourhoods.
The Draft Streatham Investment and Growth Strategy sets out the council’s vision of strengthening and future-proofing Streatham up to 2030, and recommends a series of short, medium and long term actions to achieve this.
The Strategy is set out in five parts, including a section setting out Streatham’s next ten years. This section is structured around five action areas, each establishing an objective and a set of actions that are laid out in detail in the final part of the document – delivering and measuring success.
What are the key proposals?
Amending the town centre boundary to ensure it is fit for purpose.
Reducing the extent of the Streatham Hill primary shopping area to encourage a broader mix of uses whilst still maintaining a core of retail floorspace.
Maintaining the Streatham Central Primary Shopping Area as is to protect the core retail function of this area.
Feedback on these proposed changes will inform the next version of the Revised Lambeth Local Plan (2018).
