How can we improve community cohesion in Borough and Bankside?
The north of the borough has seen rapid change in recent years as Southwark council has embarked on a journey of regeneration.
It started with luxury lofts and apartments being built in the new ‘cultural quarter’ of Bankside where the Tate Modern and Globe Theatre had arrived in the 1990’s. The next area to be ‘up and coming’ was The Borough, where the trendy foodie Borough Market brought in pioneer homebuyers and developers.
So what has this regeneration meant for social cohesion? How have existing residents adapted to such a fast pace of change that has seen a huge rise in the number of expensive and luxury housing in the area, as well as high rise office and retail premises?
The meeting will provide you with the chance to get to the heart of the issue of the changes that have happened to local communities and what more can be done to bring them together.
The second half the meeting will provide attendees with a platform to discuss any issues that you might want to raise, as well as providing the opportunity for you to share any news and information that is relevant to Borough and Bankside.
