Dorchester Court updates

Visitors to this blog will have seen an earlier report about the crisis affecting residents – our near neighbours – just up the hill in Dorchester Court.

In the news

Yesterday’s Mirror carried an article highlighting the residents’ deep concerns about the defective planning application submitted by the landlords. The link is here.

There was also an article dated 19 May in the  South London Press reporting the residents’ requests to the landlords for rent reductions during the pandemic.


In addition to opposing the planning application, the residents are asking as many people as possible to sign their petition to Lambeth. That petition can be accessed here.

The planning process

The Herne Hill Society have composed a powerful response to the owners’ planning application, which will be released shortly. We will post a link here as soon as it is available.

One thought on “Dorchester Court updates”

  1. Dorchester Court must have stingy landlords.
    The residents need to be put into temporary accommodation and the whole estate rebuilt.

    Any chance of asking Helen Hayes MP to visit the site at invitation of Herne Hill Society and ask Caroline Davies of BBC local news to do a story on it. She was at JAGS with my eldest daughter and still lives locally in Dulwich. I saw her today.
