Our Purpose


#LoveMortlake is a campaign created by the Mortlake Brewery Community Group to respond to the planned redevelopment of the Mortlake Brewery site – a prime 21 acre site stretching along the River Thames which will include hundreds of new homes, retail, office and leisure facilities.

A public meeting convened by the MBCG and attended by around 80 people on 14 June 2017 agreed on the following broad goals for the Love Mortlake campaign:

• A development that puts the heart back into Mortlake,
• Protect and enhance Mortlake’s green spaces for all to enjoy,
• Housing density we can all live with,
• Safe and sustainable transport solutions,
• Community, educational and NHS facilities for everyone.

It is work in progress and if you want to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
