Transport for London is holding public consultation on the redevelopment of Vauxhall Cross. You can fill out their survey online at this page – scroll ALL the way to the bottom: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/vauxhall-cross When I visited the KOV Forum meeting, a lot of local residents were raising serious concerns about TfL’s proposals. In fact, an alternative masterplan for the area has been created, and can be viewed here: http://www.ourvauxhall.com Our Vauxhall have a ‘support us’ page on their website – you can copy and paste their letter of support to Lambeth Council.

Local representatives Kate Hoey MP and Cllr Jack Hopkins have expressed their views on the proposals and they can be found by clicking here for Kate Hoey and here for Jack Hopkins.
Our meeting on 18 November held an interesting and wide-ranging discussion, led by our MP Kate Hoey and local councillor Jack Hopkins, on the implications for social housing residents of the Government’s Housing & Planning Bill, which is currently being discussed in Parliament. An article by Cllr Matthew Bennett, Lambeth Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, which provides useful background to the Bill, was circulated at the meeting, and our Chair, Joan Twelves, has written a blog on the implications of the Pay to Stay part of the Bill.
