 Reclaim Our Spaces

Our lives are shaped by the spaces in which we live

When we give away important community space for another transient pop-up cafe or block of luxury flats, we give away part of our lives. We give away London’s cultural and community history.

The planning system is not currently equipped with the policies required to protect these spaces

London’s skyrocketing land values are used as a trump card against arguments for competing uses. As a result we have lost many spaces and others are coming under increasing threat.

It doesn’t have to be this way! In 2013, the Southbank skatepark was saved by a successful campaign.

We need a movement that mobilises people across London.

We cannot act only when a space is under threat. We cannot wait. Together we can change the status quo. Together, we can influence a planning system that is disconnected from people’s lives and threatens the very spaces which bond London’s diverse communities together.

Join us for a day of activities, storytelling, workshops, film screenings and discussions

A detailed programme is available here: Reclaim Our Spaces.
