FORCED CLOSURE

On 11th August 2022, our landlord activated an eviction to seek Vacant Possession of the site when our lease expired. Ahead of our lease expiry we were told to sit tight and wait that we were entitled to Business Relocation as outlined by Southwark Council

Through community uproar, our #NOPRICEONCULTURE campaign sought clarity from The London Borough of Southwark that a Business Relocation Strategy was indeed a right to be fulfilled by Regent Land and Developments..
