Your Clapham – A Vision for the High Street

Clapham High Street

This is Clapham BID has been working with Lambeth Council, Transport for London (TfL) and the Clapham Society to develop a series of concept designs for important locations across the Clapham town centre area.

The partnership now wants to consult with local people on these initial ideas and get your feedback.

About the designs

We have been working together for a couple of months to identify key locations in the area where potential improvements could be made. Our concept designs aim to improve the public realm in Clapham, with an enhanced environment and stronger community.

Making the town centre area a better place for people to live, work, travel and shop in, not only for those living in the area but also people visiting and travelling through.

What happens next

At the end of the consultation we will analyse the feedback received and may make changes to the designs. As a result of feedback, designs which are well supported will be prioritised.

We currently have only a small amount to funding to build finalised designs but the priority projects will form the basis of our fundraising efforts. A similar approach in Brixton town centre resulted in over £1 million being raised to deliver projects in the Brixton public realm study.

At this stage we hope that we can gauge the aspirations of local community, with the view to make Clapham town area an improved public space and quality of environment.

Further consultation on the finalised designs will need to take place before any work starts. Residents and businesses will be formally consulted with for any changes to parking and loading bays.
