Our AGM on Thursday was attended by about thirty-five members and all three of our Camden Councillors: Cllr Sumata Khatoon, Cllr Peter Brayshaw and Cllr Roger Robinson.
We were also pleased to welcome Jasper Cuppiage of Camden Brewery who told us about his ambition to move Camden Brewerys company headquarters to Camley Street with 45 jobs and the latest technology in brewing.
Jasper also presented two posters showing an artists impression of their proposed development of 102 Camley Street and some of the history of Camden Brewery since it brewed its first pint in 2010.
David Powell (resident member) gave un update on the forum’s progress and achievements so far:
- Creating the forum and getting us recognised by Camden Council
- Lobbying to get the HS1/HS2 link cancelled
- Creating a green agenda for Camley Street
- Work so far on our neighboyurhood plan and shaping the future development of Camley street.
This was followed by the election of the committee. Thirteen individuals volunteered to join the managing committee and were elected (seven members who live in the Camley Street area and six individuals who work here). They are:
Chair: David Powell (Resident), Secretary: Peter McGinty (Resident), Treasurer: John Hayes (Daily Fish). Members: Ahmed Waza (Richmond Laundries), Alex Smith (Alara), Christian Spencer-Davies (Amodels), David Royston-Lee (Resident), Farra Pedley (Resident), Kay Lacey (Resident), Marrio Raggio (IMS of Smithfield), Paul Matthew (Fashshot), Richard Cotton (Resident), Valerie Barnett (Resident).
For more details of the meeting read the AGM minutes.
There were then three ’round-table’ discussions on:
- Identifying Neighbourhood Hotspots
- Establishing our Environmental Principles and Priorities
- Camden Brewery as an alternative development for 102 Camley Street.
More news on all of those soon.
