Lambeth 2020 Culture Consultation – Have Your Say!


It is important that you look the proposals and have your say now.

Cultural Services by 2020

The consultation will close at midnight on Friday 24 April

The proposals include the following:
Libraries. The sale of Waterloo and Minet libraries and the use of the money to help create a £10 million endowment fund for the culture and library services.
One topic of considerable concern to anyone interested in local history is the scant consideration given to the future of Lambeth’s excellent archive service at present housed at the Minet Library, which is due to be sold in 2016.
Parks and events. The generation of more income in parks and open spaces including events in Lambeth.
Sports.  The renegotiation of the current leisure contract in 2017 to provide better value for money.  A Sport Innovation Fund to provide access to facilities at reduced rates for Lambeth based community-led sport clubs and self-help groups.

You can find the overview booklet, all documentation and a questionnaire online at and in all Lambeth libraries.

Remember, the consultation will close at midnight on Friday 24 April
