Bermondsey CAN Meeting

The Old Kent Road - an Opportunity Area for Who?

The Times They Are A-Changin, Bob Dylan once sang. Well, there is no more appropriate song for the future of the Old Kent Road...

Southwark Council and the Mayor of the London say the Old Kent Road is an “Opportunity Area.” This means they see the neighbourhood and its surroundings as offering potential for transformation on a large scale by 2030.


Southwark’s vision for this change is laid out in an Area Action Plan, which is currently under consultation until November 4.

The vision includes the extension of the Bakerloo Underground to Lewisham (with two stops being built along the Old Kent Road), as well as ambitious plans to build 20,000 new homes.

At this meeting we will be focusing on some of the issues that have been raised about Southwark's plans and providing you with the opportunity to have your say!

The second half the meeting will provide attendees with a platform to discuss anything Bermondsey related, as well as providing the opportunity for you to share any news and information that is relevant to the area.

    A reminder that our final round of 2016/17 Community Engagement Programme small grant funding closes at noon on Friday 16th December 2016. Groups that haven’t already applied in 2016/17 may apply for community events, projects and activities starting from February 2017 that:

    1) bring large numbers of people in our area of benefit, North Southwark & Bermondsey, together and that give local residents skills, pride and the chance to shine.

    2) can be scaled up, or replicated, across neighbourhoods in North Southwark and Bermondsey, learning from what works.

    3) operate successfully elsewhere but can demonstrate that they can operate in North Southwark and Bermondsey, in partnership with community groups that are established in our area of benefit.

    Groups can apply for up to £5,000, although the average small grant awarded in 2015 was around £2,400 and requests must demonstrate good value. Applications must be made using the Charity’s Community Engagement Programme small grant application form. The application pack is available on our website.

    However, groups are strongly advised to contact United St Saviour’s by email or by phone to discuss and develop their idea or proposal in advance of submitting an application.

    Many thanks
