Public Meeting: All SE1 readers (and others!) welcome:
'WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE ELEPHANT & CASTLE SHOPPING CENTRE'?
The Shopping Centre is owned by property developer Delancey. It wants to demolish the Centre and build new shops and 900+ new homes in its place. But before Delancey can demolish the Centre it must get planning permission from the local council, Southwark. It must also get Southwark Council
’s permission for any new buildings it wants to build.
Delancey gave Southwark its plans for the new shops and homes before Christmas. Delancey’s plans raise two big questions;
Will there be new shops for local traders?
Will there be new homes for local people?
is now asking what local traders and local residents think of Delancey’s plans and we must make our voices heard.
The Elephant Amenity Network is a group of local people that campaigns for a better deal from the Elephant’s regeneration. In this public meeting we invite all local people to discuss Delancey’s plans for the Shopping Centre – what we think of them and how we want them changed. We are being supported by the Southwark Green Party and other groups and campaigns.
The meeting will on Tuesday February 28th at 7pm
Venue: Tesco’s First Floor unit (above Tescos shop)
All are welcome – come and join us!
Delancey’s plans for the Shopping Centre can be seen above.
