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.
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.
