25th June - Union Parade Consultation

Join us to have your say on emerging proposals to improve Great Suffolk Street just south of Union Street

London SE1 0LR

Union Parade

A number of projects are underway at the junction of Great Suffolk Street and Union Street, including the construction of the Union Yard arches redevelopment, the Music Box, and the Quietway cycle route from Greenwich to Waterloo.

Working with Southwark Council, Better Bankside has secured a grant from the Greater London Authority's High Street Fund to make improvements to the streetscene in this location which will tie into the new quietway cycle route and the construction of the new cultural developments. A draft design has been developed which seeks to improve the public realm, with new trees and planting, high quality yorkstone paving and seating. A concept design can be downloaded from our website.

Why not join us to find out more?

We are very keen to hear your views on this draft proposal and have organised a consultation event where you can come and meet the partners and the design team to discuss the project. The event will take place on the street at the junction with Union Street on Thursday 25 June at 6pm-7.30pm.

If you cannot make the event we would be very keen to hear any comments you might have about the proposals and would be happy to visit your business.  Contact Valerie Beirne, Bankside Urban Forest Manager - vb [at] for further information.

Closing date for the receipt of comments is 31 July 2015.  For further information visit the Council's Great Suffolk Street project page
