Super Sewer- Allen Summerskill, Stakeholder and Consents Manager


Allen Summerskill, Stakeholder and Consents Manager, explained that the Victorian sewerage network simply cannot keep up with the demands of 21st Century London. Whilst the sewers that were built by Sir Joseph Bazelgette in the 1860s, are in excellent working condition, they have simply run out of capacity. Built when London’s population was 2 million and designed for 4 million, it is now struggling to serve the more than 8 million people that live in London. By 2031, there will be 10 million people living in London which means that the sewerage network, which is already under severe pressure, needs to be upgraded.

Launch 2017-18 Assembly fund - Cllr McGeevor


The 2017/18 Brockley fund will focus on one or more of the following priorities:

1. Creating a high-quality living environment - looking for proposals that will help improve our local living environment and make Brockley a safer, cleaner and greener place to live, work and learn. We also want proposals that seek to create development opportunities for Brockley residents

2. Connecting Communities– looking for proposals that bring Brockley residents together, foster a sense of community spirit, mutual understanding and respect, through community projects, events and activities. These could include those that are Art, Music, Drama and Sports based. We are also keen to open up the criteria to include ideas around exciting intergenerational projects.

How much is available? 

There is £14,000 available for the Brockley ward in 2017-18. You can apply for a maximum of £2,500 for each individual project.

What can it be spent on?

The priorities highlighted have been identified by residents, community groups and local businesses who have attended the Brockley Meetings. We want to fund projects that aim to tackle these important issues raised by the local community. The money could be used to start up a project, support a group to develop new activities, or support a larger project that has secured funding from other sources.
