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:

Supplementary question

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.

Supplementary answer

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.
