Membership of Just Space changes from time to time as new groups join and others withdraw or (usually under pressure from cuts) find that they are no longer able to participate effectively. This list is not definitive but lists groups that take part in activities and actions. See the last page of Towards a community-led London Plan for a list of groups participating in 2016.
There is a “LIST” in Twitter of the active participating groups which use Twitter. You can look at their recent tweets by going to https://twitter.com/justspace7/lists/jsgroups and see who the listed groups using twitter are at https://twitter.com/justspace7/lists/jsgroups/members

Planning Aid for London This organisation has been re-launched in 2020, hosted by the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) with a 3-year grant from the Trust For London. It exists to provide advice and support on planning issues to individuals and groups in London who cannot pay consultants. Members of Just Space should be aware that this will be a renewed and useful source of advice and support. In addition to responding to individuals’ requests for help, the rejuvenated organisation plans to develop sustained relationships with a small number of grassroots organisations of people in need. Paid staff is small – Koen Rutten the key worker – and the main resource of the organisation will continue to be professionals volunteering their time. The eligibility criteria for individuals seeking advice are set out on Planning Aid for London’s website (below).
A re-vamped web site is about to be launched with full contact details and an extensive directory of links to guidance, leaflets and to other networks and advisory bodies.
Links to other London organisations are listed in the links section, here.
