Information about the New Southwark Plan
Southwark Council is preparing a new borough-wide development plan called the New Southwark Plan. The New Southwark Plan sets out how the Council will deliver further regeneration and wider improvements for the borough in the years to come. Planning decisions must be made in accordance with the development plan, unless other material considerations indicate otherwise.
Following the consultation the Plan will be submitted to Government for an independent examination where an inspector will consider any comments submitted to the Council during the consultation period.
