Lambeth Council does not have the necessary permission from the Secretary of State which means these commercial events are illegal! Erecting fences and structures on common land requires legal permission from the Secretary of State for the Environment under the Commons Act 2006. Lambeth Council is in breach of the law and must be held to account.

Currently, enormous steel fences block our rights of access on to a large tract of Clapham Common - just over 20 acres have been fenced off. Do you object to the loss of public access to this vast area?

Lambeth Council has approved a licence for Festival Republic to hold 6 major events a year for up to 40,000 people per day plus 4 large events of up to 20,000 people per day between 1st June and 15th September from 2021 to 2024. Do you object to Clapham Common being used for large-scale commercial events like these, which repeatedly destroy the grassland and damage habitat for wildlife?

This continual cycle of degradation and restoration means everyone loses access to this huge expanse of green space for months on end. This area has already been fenced off for 9 months at a cost of over £200k - to repair the damage of previous events.
