On Monday, 2nd October 2017, Lambeth council’s Cabinet will discuss a report on the future location of the archives. The report recommends that a new home for the archives be built in Kennington Lane. A copy of the report may be downloaded from here.
In May last year, Lambeth council engaged consultants to review options for the future home of Lambeth Archives. The consultants delivered their report to the council earlier this year. The council is now consulting on the Option Appraisal Report, a copy of which may be downloaded from here.
The timetable for the consultation is extremely tight. Comments on the report need to be submitted by Friday 18 August 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
