Lambeth the Un- Cooperative Council

Has Lambeth Council messed up your life too?

19 Lillieshall Road



This is 19 Lillieshall Road, SW4 0LN.

Lambeth Council forced out the long-term housing co-operative residents and then sold the place. It was empty for more than a year before work started on it. We hear an overseas investor purchased it, sight unseen.

This is a grade 2 listed building, both the interior and exterior are supposed to be protected.

A few days ago,  fireplaces were seen being brought out of the house and being left in the street. Whilst  trying to find the site foreman, it was clear that reproduction fireplaces had been put into the house while the originals had been removed.

Lambeth Planning were contacted and messages left.

Yesterday, what looked like a length of wooden wainscotting was seen being taken out and chucked into the back of a van. From what some of the contractors working on the house have said, most of the original features, joinery etc have been removed, even though refurbishment was possible. Modern goods have replaced the Georgian items that have been taken out. We know that some of the cottages have had old wood panelling removed, only to be replaced by MDF.

This is common practise in Lillieshall Road at the moment. Lambeth Council ignores all complaints about the destruction being wrought on these listed buildings.

The buyers are only interested in the profits they can make by ripping the guts out of our homes. Lambeth Council seems only too happy to let them do it.


Co-op Resident in Desperate Health Situation

Steve Drake, of Short Stock Housing Co-op in Clapham North and a founding member of Lambeth United Housing Co-op, died in the early hours of Monday morning, 1st December 2014.

Nigel Haselden finally caught out telling porkies

Oh yes! Finally! Clapham Town ward councillor, Nigel Haselden, has been pulled up for lying… by his arch nemesis Kate Hoey .

Nigel ‘The Cadaver’ Haselden hates Hoey, why? Simple, she’s not a liar, but he is.

Haselden lies to his constituents, lies to his friends and, really stupidly, lies to other members of his local Labour Party branch.

He’s taken it a step too far this time, he lied about Kate Hoey, in public, and he’s been caught out, in public.

Colleagues of mine attended a local Clapham Town branch meeting recently, and were shocked to repeatedly hear other members of the party telling Haselden to stop lying to them.

Why was Haselden reselected as a candidate in the local elections while Helen O’Malley, a popular, honest, trustworthy councillor was deselected by the Lambeth Forum, the group that decides these things? Nigel Haselden, along with Cllr  Christopher ‘The Grin’ Wellbelove, are two-faced Party line-toers, while O’Malley is a principled and honest person.

In Lambeth, this very dirty business in Clapham Town ward tells you all you need to know about how Lib Peck’s morally bankrupt Lambeth council works.
