Cllr Matthew Bennett (pictured) the councillor responsible for the local economy says “Our social, creative and community sectors play a critical role in Lambeth’s thriving local economy, support thousands of jobs and are an important part in what makes our town centres, and Lambeth as a whole, so vibrant.
