Community Engagement

Muse Developments and Lambeth Council are committed to engaging with local people.

GL Hearn have been appointed by Muse Developments to carry out community and stakeholder engagement on their behalf for the Your New Town Hall project. GL Hearn will regularly provide updates on the project and are your first point of call should you have any queries, concerns or comments on the project. Contact details are provided in the blue bar at the bottom of this page.

Community Forums


It is important that the local community, key stakeholders and other local development project teams are fully informed of what is happening and when. We also believe that it is vital that there is a platform for all affected parties to discuss concerns, share information and address issues.

That is why we set up two forums when the Your New Town Hall project began: the Brixton Neighbourhood Construction Forum (BNCF) and the Brixton Construction Management Forum (BCMF). When construction is underway and forums are held, minutes from both meetings are circulated between attendees, and issues raised in each group are reported across both sessions.

You can view previous notes from these Forum sessions further down this page – downloads are provided.

May 2020


We re-established the Brixton Neighbourhood Construction Forum (BNCF) to discuss Olive Morris House, the final phase of the Your New Town Hall project, in April 2020. We held two Forum online sessions with the local community.

Due to continued Government Covid-19 restrictions on social distancing, we are having this session online again. The local community has been invited to attend one of two online sessions being held on 12 and 15 June so they can discuss the project directly with the team and learn more about the ongoing works.

We have updated the proposed/draft June Forum agenda following feedback that we received. The agenda can be downloaded below. If you have any comments about this, please email us at olivemorrishouse@glhearn.com by Monday 8 June.

April 2020


We are now in the process of re-establishing the Brixton Neighbourhood Construction Forum (BNCF) to discuss Olive Morris House*, the final phase of the Your New Town Hall project, given demolition works are commencing on 20 April 2020.

*Please note that proposals for Olive Morris House have not changed from the original plans which were discussed at community meetings prior to planning.

However, due to current Government Covid-19 restrictions on social distancing, to begin with, we are taking this session online so that residents still have the opportunity to discuss these works directly with the team. The local community has been invited to attend one of two online sessions being held on 24 and 27 April. Please download the invitation flyer below for information on how to get involved, and the presentation which will be used in the online sessions.

The BNCF will be held every couple of months as either online sessions (whilst Covid-19 restrictions remain) or as face-to face meetings as soon as this is allowed.

March 2020


In March 2020, we issued a newsletter to the local community before it was determined that we would run an online session of the Brixton Neighbourhood Construction Forum (BNCF). This newsletter was distributed to the local community to announce that works would be starting on site at Olive Morris House on 6 April and to provide more information on this. As per recent community communications, start on site has subsequently been changed to 20 April and we will be running the Forum online.
