This is documented on page 14 of "SOUTHWARK" Issue 17 Summer 2017.

Was this in any sense "advertised" in East Dulwich?

I doubt it was the council. The page you mention is at http://southwarkmagazine.com/news/8275/ ... ham-Levels. The mag. itself is a private one, unconnected with the council. The subsidisers appear to be the Peckham Levels project, http://www.peckhamlevels.org/about/, which was awarded to Make Shift Community Ltd, http://www.makeshift.org/. I see that Make Shift similarly offered a limited number of subsidised places in Brixton Pop, another of their temporary projects.

Peckham Levels Ltd is wholly owned by Make Shift Community Ltd. Make Shift has two active entities with significant control: (1) Mr Carl Turner (2) The Collective Partners LLP (which holds at least 75% of shares) The Collective Partners LLP has one active person with significant control: Mr Reza Mohammad Merchant. All according to Companies House.

Southwark is the landlord and enabler. Possibly that's all? Wherever it was advertised, they seem to have got the applicants: http://www.peckhamlevels.org/blog-1/201 ... -to-launch. There's a useful Southwark News summary too, at http://londonbulletin.co.uk/gentrificat ... 78-271.htm.

Remember when it was just the site of a Sunday morning boot sale?

Thanks Ian - an interesting set of onion layers uncovered there.

I have a degree of confidence that HMRC can find its way through this and ensure the correct tax is being paid.
