Improving the local neighbourhood

The Oval Partnership has a track record of delivering local projects including
Our membership includes individuals , businesses and organisations. Collectively we have considerable expertise and experience. This is something that we can and do draw on. For example, the Oval Farmers Market (established 2007) is run by one of our partners-City and Country Farmers Markets -and we know how successful that has been.
Our ambition is to tackle larger projects that make a tangible difference to the local community. Back in 2008 we started work on the Oval Public Realm Scoping Study. This identified a number of possible local projects (see below). In the coming year we are focusing on one - the St Marks Churchyard and Farmers’ Market Project although we do encourage local investment where we can seek to influence other local developments including those in the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area .
