Southwark Street News 2
Southwark Street is the spine of our neighbourhood, a place of significant investment with a range of opportunities to bring placemaking improvements. This second issue of Southwark Street News brings updates on projects and collaborations that are already making a positive impact on the street, and there is more to come.
Pick up a copy our latest Southwark Street News from Bankside Community Space, in cafes around the neighbourhood, or read it right here (click on the link below right).
As well as mapping the developments on site and in the planning pipeline, we look at placemaking opportunites around the jucntion with Borough High Street, and also ways to tackle air quality, a rising issue on the political agenda and for businesses across London. Our intelligence from businesses shows that it ranks as increasingly important in their priorities – which is why we are investing in a unique new approach to understanding and tackling this complex problem. There isn’t a single solution, so, for example, we are developing an innovative multi-stranded project that focuses several approaches on a specific ‘mini’ neighbourhood just south of Southwark Street.
