What is LJAG?

The Loughborough Junction Action Group, or LJAG, is a group of volunteers who live or work in Loughborough Junction in south London. It is our vision to make Loughborough Junction a great place to live and work.

We share a passion for our neighbourhood and want to see it thrive even through difficult times. Our projects are designed to bring people together to improve wellbeing and decrease isolation.  We believe that everyone has something to offer and our projects bring opportunities to talk to neighbours, make new friends, learn new skills and develop new ideas.

We work closely with other local organisations including other neighbourhood forums, local partnerships, tenants and residents associations, youth centres, GP practices, local artists and businesses.

Say No to the Hinton Road Development

Developer London Green is proposing to build 320 poky bedsits in a 14-storey block on Hinton Road, out of keeping with surrounding 2 and 3 storey houses. Say no to this rabbit hutch development.
