Your views are important to us, and will help shape the future of this neighbourhood

On the plans

Feedback and comments were sought on our early thinking during October and November 2015. We reported on what we heard in Chapter Two of our engagement and consultation report. 

To further explore several of the key themes that emerged from this early process we held three discussion sessions in May and June 2016, which were focused on Heritage, Streets & Spaces, and Integration. We heard from a range of people who had many insightful and creative thoughts to share. You can download a summary of what was said in each of these sessions from our downloads page.

In March 2017 we updated on the emerging plans at a series of public drop-ins. We reported on what we heard in Chapter Three of our engagement and consultation report.

We are now able to share our proposed masterplan. This is still a work in progress, so we are looking forward to hearing what people think at a series of public drop-ins on 15, 16, 17 June. See consultation flyer on the downloads page for more information.

Our approach to community engagement

We believe in ongoing dialogue with stakeholders and our local communities.
Our approach to community engagement means that we:

  • Establish a dialogue with community organisations, stakeholders and leaders from an early stage
  • Broker partnerships and working relationships with a wide range of community organisations to deliver projects of community benefit
  • Develop a phased approach to consultation that allows for feedback at every stage in the process
  • Hold public drop-ins and workshops that are open to all
  • Ensure that all feedback and responses from the community are reviewed and where possible fed into the development process
  • Involve local communities in long-term decisions and the management of community amenities


We believe in open, ongoing dialogue with stakeholders and our local communities

Our consultation on the former biscuit factory and campus sites is split into four key phases:

Phase 1 - Initial thinking

In October 2015 we introduced Grosvenor, our approach and initial thinking for a new part of this urban neighbourhood.
Click here to download Chapter Two of our engagement and consultation report, which sets out the feedback and comments we received on this emerging thinking.

Phase 1.1 - Discussion sessions

To further explore several of the key themes that emerged from this early phase we held three discussion sessions in May & June 2016. These were focused on Heritage, Streets & Spaces, and Integration.

Phase 2 - Masterplan update

In March 2017 we updated on the emerging plans at a series of public drop-ins. We reported on what we heard in Chapter Three of our engagement and consultation report. 

Phase 3 - Draft masterplan

We are now able to share our proposed masterplan. This is still a work in progress, so we are looking forward to hearing what people think at a series of public drop-ins on 15, 16, 17 June. See consultation flyer on the downloads page for more information. 

Phase 4 - Final masterplan

Prior to submission of a planning application we will present final details of the proposed scheme that will be submitted to Southwark Council for planning approval.

At the end of each phase the outcome of the consultation will be summarised into a report that will be available on the website.

All these reports will be combined into the Community Consultation report that will be submitted to the council along with the other planning documents. This will also be a public document.
