We've lost our Town Centre Manager already. The TCM was in post for about 10 weeks then abruptly left. There are many reasons for this but I wanted to point out what I believe to be the biggest reason from an insider's standpoint - weak and frankly amateurish council policies that just don't stand up to scrutiny in the real world by business people.
The next Streatham Green Drinks is on Thursday 12 November at a New Venue: Perfect Blend Cafe & Bar on Streatham High Road, opposite Streatham Hill Station.
This is a monthly event on the 2nd Thursday of every month. No
agenda, no plan, just a reason for people to come and have a drink,
talk green things, meet one another and find out what else is going on.
The Streatham Action committee will be meeting to discuss agenda items including results of the public meeting on the 8th of October. All who wish to table items of business please contact the committee via the contact form.
Representatives from Tesco, Lambeth's regeneration team and Cllr Lib Peck, the Lambeth Cabinet Member responsible were all present at last night's meeting.
Both sides stated that they were still committed to the project, but weren't willing to discuss the terms of their current negotiations on revised plans for the site. They said that they will be able to go public in eight weeks time - i.e just before Christmas.

Good evening to you all and many thanks for attending this screening of The Age of Stupid …………
My name is Jonathan Leake and I’m the environment editor at The Sunday Times. I’ve been asked to say a few words before we watch this film partly, because I live in Streatham, but also because the movie is about climate change. It’s science fiction but it's based on science fact and my newspaper has been writing about the science of climate change for some years.
