The crucial news is that the report to the Lambeth Council cabinet concerning designation has been published: https://moderngov.lambeth.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?MId=10208&EVT=101&DT=A
Venue: Bolney Meadow Community Centre, 31 Bolney Street, London, SW8 1EZ. Date: Monday 3 July, at 5.00pm.
The recommendation is both to designate the NPA as a Qualifying Body and agree the geographical area as applied for. There were 33 responses to the consultation, mostly very supportive (for which many thanks) and only three adverse. The objections were considered and but did not change the positive recommendation.
