Across Southwark there's a move to provide a local service delivery point which will be - in effect - a one stop shop where local residents can access the Council's services.
- itself at the very western edge of Borough and Bankside and not very convenient for many residents - is to be one of the first new Housing Sites which will provide new affordable and social housing in the borough as Elephant is regenerated.
The Long Lane
housing office is equally not ideal for most residents in Borough and Bankside - mainly because it is difficult to access for the majority of residents and because it is itself on the boundary with Bermondsey community council.
Looking at the map of Borough and Bankside the ideal location would be somewhere around Borough tube - the public transport links are the best.
The former Social Services offices at the junction of Newington Causeway
and Harper Road
are very central in Borough and Bankside and are very transport accessible with bus and tube services, but I don't think this is ideal long-term without major redevelopment but if you had to pick a location now it's the nearest to central one could pick.
