Save Hamilton House

Save Hamilton House

We the undersigned will campaign to stop backdoor, profit motivated development of our community buildings. We demand that Hamilton House be sold into community ownership for the benefit of its community to protect Bristol’s creative and community led culture. #savehamiltonhouse savehamiltonhouse@gmail.com

Why is this important?

Not only have we recently lost two amazing organisations in Stokes Croft, Jacknife and Mark My Words, but now there is an immediate threat to Hamilton House being gentrified through the backdoor with artist studios and community businesses being developed into flats. The landlord has handed a vacant possession order to the building manager Coexist CIC for August 11th, making 300 artists and another 400 people working in valuable creative and community activity without a legal contract or any guaranteed security for the future. We need to protect these community buildings. Sign the petition. Act Now!

Stokes Croft, Bristol

Reasons for signing

  • Hamilton house is vital to Bristol as a city. Giving space for small business startups and individuals. On a stretch of road that is supposed to be our creative melting pot. It's about choosing to invest in people and ideas. Not just investing in brick and mortar (flats). If this building is eroded into insignificance it will be a sad day and have knock on effect to Bristols future prosperity and community as a whole.
  • That area of Stokes Croft is regenerating through the community and local business initiatives of which Hamilton House and the Canteen are a cruc ial and vibrant part of. We need to maintain that growth and there are other areas where housing can be developed with less impact.
  • Hamilton House is Stokes Croft
