Lambeth Council confirms support for FoSHT campaign
From Lambeth Council Minutes 22 January 2020
Councillor Liz Atkins to the Cabinet Member for Planning, Investment and
New Homes, Councillor Mathew Bennett:
Councillor L. Atkins welcomed the recently published Streatham Investment and Growth Strategy 2019-30 and asked whether the Cabinet Member for Planning, Investment and New Homes would work with the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre, Streatham BID and the current leaseholders to determine the meanwhile use of the building. Councillor L. Atkins asked the Cabinet Member to support plans, which had been put forward by the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre, to carry out a viability study and to publicly endorse their bid to crowdfund costs through the Mayor’s CrowdFund London 2020 scheme and to provide funding through Lambeth’s Community Infrastructure Levy.
Councillor Bennett responded by stating he fully supported the work that had taken place to refurbish and rejuvenate Streatham Hill Theatre but recognised more still needed to be done. With this in mind, the Cabinet Member confirmed he was happy to support the suggestion that had been put forward by Councillor L. Atkins.
