Southwark, like the rest of London, is changing. The council wants this change to work for all our residents – to help you and your families enjoy life, be healthy and thrive in Southwark.

With or without the council, the next few years will see new developments and buildings, new businesses and technology, and an ever-changing skyline. Southwark’s population will also continue to change, as more people choose to make our borough their home.

We have been bold in our plans to encourage home building and, with rapidly reducing budgets, finding ways to make sure private developers help pay for the thousands of new council homes we are building, the new leisure centres and libraries we have opened, and new cultural and open spaces.

We are also helping residents to take advantage of the opportunities around them, and have helped 5,000 people into work, as well as creating nearly 2,000 apprenticeships for local people. We’re also ensuring that as our population grows, we have the new schools, health services and transport improvements that our residents need – despite massive cuts in funding from national Government.

But we don’t want to make assumptions – we want to build on previous consultations to make sure we’re getting it right for you and your families now, and for future generations. We want to hear direct from our residents about how the changes are affecting you, how you feel about the future, and whether there’s anything you think we can do differently.

While we don’t have a magic wand, and the Government, the Mayor, the NHS and the private sector all play an important role in influencing our lives, the council does have some powers and levers that we can use to help make Southwark an even better place to live, work and play than it is today.

We want to hear from you – please take a few minutes to fill in our questionnaire, and come and speak to us as we travel around the borough on our most far reaching engagement with the people who live and work in Southwark.

Headline feedback will be published by the end of February

Dear Friend

Our next meeting will be  7pm Wednesday 13th September Tesco Space First Floor Shopping Centre.  We will be discussing our response to the amended shopping centre planning application, in particular the draft local business support and relocation strategy and the affordable housing offer.  Much can be done to improve both.   Links to documents here –  Document – Draft local business support and relocation strategy Document – Affordable housing addendum.

Southwark Law Centre will be attending to advise us.  It has drafted an initial objection letter on our behalf.

In the meantime, a reminder that the shopping centre developers Delancey will be presenting their amended plans at the Walworth Society, Thursday 7th September at 7pm at St Peter’s Church, Liverpool Grove SE17 https://goo.gl/maps/YmKFJotwsZQ2

Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre meeting 7th September

From Elephant Amenity Network

Dear Friend

The amended planning application for the re- development of the Shopping Centre has now been submitted.  The main change is a draft local business support and relocation strategy.  This is the result of the hard campaigning by  the traders and their supporters.  It is a step in the right direction, but could be much better still – Document – Draft local business support and relocation strategy.  A promised affordable housing addendum has not yet appeared.  There is no social rented housing proposed in the original application.

We are organising a meeting at the shopping centre w/c 11 Sept and will forward details once this is arranged.

In the meantime shopping centre developers Delancey will be presenting their amended plans at the Walworth Society,Thursday 7th September at 7pm at St Peter’s Church, Liverpool Grove SE17 https://goo.gl/maps/YmKFJotwsZQ2

This is a public meeting, open to all, and an important opportunity to let Delancey know our views and support the traders.

Regards

Jerry
