Save Cressingham Gardens

Cressingham Gardens is a high density, low rise estate with a corresponding low crime rate built in the late 1970’s by the renowned Ted Hollamby, a leading architect in Lambeth of the 1970’s. Catherine Croft, director of the Twentieth Century society described the design as “human centred, gentle and beautifully detailed” adding the result is “Good sensible housing in the way housing should be built…it would be an enormous pity to lose Cressingham Gardens as it stands.”

However, Lambeth Council is now threatening to demolish the estate and break up the community.
