Stop the Blocks in Kennington
is a group formed by members of the local community that is constructively challenge the wide concerns over the redevelopment proposals for the former Woodlands Nursing Home site in Kennington
Those involved who meet, participate. support or work on the campaign are all local people from Lambeth, Kennington and Southwark. Our campaign continues because of local community support. We need your backing to win.
We have however reached a critical point now that the application is being considered by the London Borough of Lambeth
in that we need to secure vital external expertise to ensure we have fully qualified and robust professional legal counsel and expert advice.
We consider that the proposals ride roughshod over planning policy, listed buildings, conservation areas and the amenity of existing local residents. We want to reach a financial target of £9000 in the next two weeks. Generous local neighbours have already pitched in £1,000 in the last few months, but the deadline to object to the planning application is 1st October 2019 and we need to get the additional external help quickly.
We are asking for everyone in this group to donate what they can, ideally at least £50, and if you can afford it then please donate more. If everyone in this group does this, we can the secure professional advice, submissions and reports we need to hopefully secure a rejection of this vastly over scaled and damaging scheme.

We feel it is important to get the best redevelopment outcome possible on this site not just for the current community, but also the newcomers who we want to welcome into the area so that it continues to flourish and grow. The volunteers in this group have done and will continue to do everything they can to use their own resources and expertise to help the community challenge these proposals, but we need your financial assistance now.
Any monies raised which are unused when this campaign ends will be donated to local community charities.
