Damp Proofing in Streatham

A district in South London, Streatham is recognised as one of 35 major centres in Greater London as port of the London Plan. During the 50s Streatham was renowned for being home to one of the longest and busiest shopping streets in London, becoming the site of the UK’s first supermarket when Express Dairies Premier Supermarket opened its first store in 1951. This was closely followed by the opening of the first ever Waitrose in 1955 in Streatham. Numerous factors gradually led to a decline in retail throughout the 70s and 80s, including population movements to the surrounding areas of Croydon, Kingston and Sutton, heavy traffic growing on the A23 and a lack of redevelopment in the town centre. This slowly began to recover in the coming years, with the opening several new supermarkets and shops in new retail spaces, as well as Streatham being selected to benefit from the Boris Johnson’s Outer London Fund.

Streatham translates simply to “the hamlet on the street” and historically originates from the London to Brighton Way, the roman road which lead from the capital to the coast. This road is strangely referred to as Stane Street in various sources, although it diverges from the main London-Chichester road at Kennington. The village had remained mostly unaltered until the 18th century, during which Streatham Wells began to be celebrated for their health-giving properties. This reputation eventually attracted wealthy merchants from London and other areas to build residences in Streatham. However due to the rapid urbanisation of the area, few of these large residence are still remaining aside from Streatham Place and Park Hill.
