Our next meeting is on Thursday 4th July 7pm. Cllr Johnson Situ is aiming to attend to provide an update about the Walworth Town Hall redevelopment.

2. Walworth Town Hall Redevelopment - update from General Projects.

The following note is from Jacob Loftus of General Projects who have been appointed by Southwark as the preferred developer of the Town Hall. They are now planning to hold a series of engagement events and have sent this quote below about the first one that was held recently and the future ones they intend to hold.

"We are now gearing up for the next stage of the community engagement and I wanted to share with you our community plan, please see document below. The intention is to commence the outreach in the next 2 weeks with an objective to hold a community open house engagement session during the last week of June. This structure should allow us to gather further valuable input from 200+ community members prior to the session, which will help us improve the open house engagement session.

I have also attached the meeting notes from our roundtable meeting (Design Meeting) for your reference. We are aiming to schedule a follow up roundtable meeting sometime in July once we have completed the wider community engagement, at which point we will share our findings and the revised proposals."
