The Blackheath Society
Blackheath, with its Village and adjacent Heath, is a unique London environment. The Blackheath Society, one of the country's oldest amenity societies, formed in 1937, exists to preserve and enhance our area. Please join us in helping to do so. In this site you can see what we do, and how you can help. More information >>
Huntsman Site Exhibition

Consultants acting for the company are exhibiting revised development proposals for the site on Wednesday 16th April in the Bunyan room at St Michael & All Angels Church, Pond Road between the hours of 3pm and 9pm.
We have been told that representatives of Derreb Ltd will be available to answer questions and there will also be comment forms to enable visitors to make representations.
PRESS RELEASE ON 15TH APRIL FOR POP CONCERT ON BLACKHEATH
OnBlackheath have now announced their lineup for their 2 day festival, 13/14th September 2014. Their sponsors are the John Lewis Partnership. Tickets are now on sale via their website.
The Society is looking forward to being part of the process taking this event forward, engaging constructively with London Borough of Lewisham on the detailed plans (which we are still awaiting) and addressing local residents' concerns.
We are pleased that there is a commitment to a full review afterwards on how the event works out. In particular the effect of the closeness of the festival site to residential properties and the fact that roads are to be closed and buses diverted for over a week to allow for site setup and dismantling.
