Lambeth consults over Winterville plan on Clapham Common

Published: 31 July 2018

Residents living near Clapham Common have the chance to comment on a planning application to Lambeth Council over proposals to stage a large scale event on the common in the run up to Christmas.

Lambeth will shortly consider an application for an event called ‘Winterville’ which would run from November 15 to December 23.

‘Winterville’ would be sited on the north east side of the common and occupy a space amounting to more than nine acres.

It would feature an ice rink, roller disco, cinema, indoor miniature golf, entertainment tents, fairground rides, bars, catering and market stalls, production cabins, lighting and associated structures including perimeter fencing and vehicular servicing.

It would cater for up to 5,000 visitors at any one time and the applicants are seeking permission to operate the entertainments and attractions between 3pm and 10pm during the week and from 10am to 11pm at weekends.

The application is set to be determined by councillors in Lambeth on September 4. Lambeth Council manages the whole of Clapham Common, even though more than half of it is geographically located in the borough of Wandsworth
