As others have noted Southwark Council
are consulting (ends 6 March) on the New Southwark Plan, which
will provide the overarching development strategy for Southwark. It will set out a vision for the borough and for the individual neighbourhoods within the borough. It will set out how we will meet local needs for more high quality housing, employment opportunities and attractive, safe and sustainable environments. It will also set out planning policies that will be used to make decisions on planning applications. www.southwark.gov.uk/newsouthwarkplan
It also provides a link (you have to register on the site) to
an interactive map which allows stakeholders to comment on the potential proposal sites identified in the New Southwark Plan Options Paper. These are the sites identified in Figure 3. If you have any views on the type of development these sites could accommodate, or if you wish to nominate further potential proposal sites, please leave comments on the map.
All comments are moderated, to it remains to be seen if our leaders' stated aspirations to provide "mixed communities" will stretch to accepting suggestions for sites in the north of the borough, or to increase density in Dulwich ...
