Hampstead Antiques Emporium ACV application

Posted on 8/1/2023

Most of you will have visited the Hampstead Antiques Emporium, one of Hampstead’s most distinctive retail outlets. It has been gratifying to see it survive for so many years in the face of Covid and the general disappearance of London’s small antique shops and historic markets. What a blow it was then, not only to the tenant stallholders but to Hampstead itself, to learn in November 2022 that the new freehold owner had given stallholders notice to quit by January 2023.

Local ward councillors, with the Heath and Hampstead Society and the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum, have supported an application to Camden Council for the site to be declared an Asset of Community Value (ACV), which will confer a statutory right on interested parties in the community to bid for the site in the event of its future sale.
