CoolTan Arts Community Space for 237 Walworth Road

Dear all,

CoolTan Arts invite you to take part in the public consultation on the future development of the site of our old premises at 237 Walworth Road.

When planning was granted at this site it was on the prevision of a section 106, with CoolTan Arts as the named recipient. This meant that the developer promised include an allocation for community space in any new development.

Currently the proposed planning application is for a shared housing development, something which doesn’t include the promised facilities.

We believe it is vital that any new development must include the promised community space for CoolTan Arts. The Walworth Road needs to have public community spaces, places that provide skilled employment and wages above the minimum wage, allowing people a respectable standard of living. We believe that the area should not be taken over by expensive housing developments at the expense of other facilities and needs.

CoolTan Arts has developed a petition about this and will be contacting the council in Southwark and all our MPS, please add your name:

Goldcrest the developer is inviting local residents and businesses to a public exhibition to view the proposals on Thursday 24th October between 12pm and 8pm at Chatelaine House, 186 Walworth Road, London, SE17 1JJ.

CoolTan will be attending the meeting between 1-2pm and invite you to join us then to have your say.

If you cannot attend the meeting Goldcrest invite you to share your views by either email: or by writing: Walworth Road Consultation, FREEPOST RSBX-ARER-CTYA, Your Shout, The Old Marmite Factory, 1-45 Durham Street, London, SE11 5JH.

You can also contact Southwark Council: Southwark Council, PO BOX 64529, London SE1P 5LX, 020 7525 5000,
