Getting to know Bermondsey

Over the past three years we have spent a lot of time getting to know the area and the surrounding communities to help ensure that we have a good understanding of local needs and aspirations. This has influenced the content of the final proposals as reflected in the current planning application and related strategies. The programme of engagement has also included a wide range of activities including appointment of dedicated resources, support for locally run events, contributions to community projects, longer-term grant programmes, interim uses and regular communications from our Bermondsey team.
 
This is an ongoing process and we intend to continue working closely with the community to establish a long-term and meaningful partnership.
