Filming in Shad Thames, 9 and 10 May

25 April 2022

 

STRA has been informed by FilmFixer that a large-scale production will be filming in Shad Thames on Monday, 9 May and Tuesday, 10 May, with set up beginning on Sunday, 8 May and a back-up filming date of Wednesday, 11 May. 

 

While most of the activity will take place within the usual hours agreed with FilmFixer, on both evenings the filming will go until midnight. 

 

The production company has also obtained permission from Southwark to suspend several parking bays and control traffic on Shad Thames itself. 

 

After discussions with STRA, the film production company have agreed to several measures to help mitigate any disturbance to residents including: offering blackout materials to any residents who feel they will be impacted by lighting, paid parking in Q Park for any residents whose parking is impacted by the suspensions, and a promise to accommodate any deliveries or special access that residents have already arranged for those dates. 

 

They have also agreed to a generous donation, which will be used on behalf of Shad Thames residents. 

 

The map of the areas impacted by the filming is below. 

 

The production company has provided contact details for residents who would like to be in touch with them in advance of the production with questions or to arrange for blackout materials.

Public Meeting Follow Up

 More than 140 people participated in the April public meeting convened by STRA and Councillors Hamish McCallum and Humaira Ali to discuss anti-social behaviour in the area with representatives of the Met Police Southwark Council, More London, Potters Fields Park, and Team London Bridge (please find minutes from that meeting attached to the item directly below this one). 

 

In a follow-up call on 3 June, those same stakeholders reported on the steps that have been taken to help alleviate this behaviour. The police, the Park and the Council have all provided extra security over the last two months, which has resulted in a reduction in ASB. Other steps include extra cleaning, bins, lights, CCTV, and signage in the area. Stakeholders reported a rise in ASB across the borough in recent months. 

 

In addition, both the Park and More London reported that as part of the summer programming they have planned, they will both be providing additional temporary toilets for the summer months, hopefully improving conditions for Shad Thames residents and businesses. 

 

The police continue to urge residents to report anti-social behaviour by calling 999 while the behaviour is in progress or 101 after the fact. 

 

There will be another check-in later this summer to be sure that the situation remains stable.


Public meeting - Wednesday, 14 April at 7:00pm

This meeting took place with around 147 people joining the Zoom call.

 

The purpose of the meeting was to give area residents and business owners a chance to hear from the Police, Council officers, and representatives of More London, Potters Fields Park, and the local business district about the actions they are taking in response to the events of last weekend and their plans for the reopening of licensed premises like pubs and bars. It was also an opportunity for residents and businesses to share their experiences and ask questions.

 

The meeting was chaired by Councillors Humaira Ali and Hamish McCallum.

 

The speakers were:

 

Southwark Council – Jackie McGeever, Manager Southwark Anti-Social Behaviour Unit

Met Police – Inspector Tom Cornish, Neighbourhood inspector at @MPSSouthwark.

Potters Fields – Sheila Benjamin, Chief Executive, Potters Fields Park Trust

More London – Magnus MacAulay, Estate Director, London Bridge City

Team London Bridge – Nadia Broccardo, Executive Director at London Bridge Business Improvement District

 

STRA would like to thank all the participants for their time and contribution to the discussion.

 

A summary of the questions that were posted during the meeting, along with answers from contributors will be compiled and distributed to all the attendees in the coming weeks.

Helicopter noise

At the STRA AGM a question was asked about what can be done about helicopter noise in the area.

 

Anood, our local Councillor, contacted Caroline Pidgeon at the GLA, and received the following reply.  Anood will follow up in the New Year.

 

You will see from the links below that this is a problem that is receiving London-wide attention.
 
"Caroline will indeed ask some Mayoral Questions in the New Year, however in the meantime I thought this information from her website might be useful.

Caroline also asked a couple of written Mayoral Questions back in September.   I thought they might be useful.
