Can anyobdy say who funds this SE1 discussion site and provides the news map/feed?

I'd be interested in participating in a forum on a similar site for the SE11 area, but I can't find a similar site in existence!

Obviously developments in and around Elephant are just about on the SE11 border, but we're quite a distance from Bermondsey Street (which people always seem to be talking about). I think there is likely to be interest from residents, although the demographic is probably different.

It's published by Bankside Press, and the editor of this website is the inestimable James Hatts.

Of COURSE no similar site exists. Our Forum is utterly special and the envy of all for miles around!

Is it simply that Bankside Press were based in the area and consequently decided to provide a local service and publicise themselves at the same time? Or, did residents request a local area website and Bank Press step up? Would James Hatts be interested in doing something similar for SEll?

I realise, Jackie, that no similar site currently exists. However, I don't think it should be too difficult to produce something similar and just as enviable :) SE1 is a much larger postal zone than SE11, which might affect levels of participation, but then SE11 is a much smaller and more exclusive area ;)

If you keep an eye on london-se11.co.uk you might find that something interesting appears there in the not too distant future.

In the meantime the Kennington Association is your best source for info on SE11 and environs:

That is potentially very very exciting news :) I tried it today, but it just comes up with "did you mean london-se1"? I will check regularly. It would be great to have interconnecting SE1, SE11, SW8, SW9, SE17, etc. websites, almost as "noticeboards" for the different regions. The web is rather ungeographical, but it's much easier to meet and organise with people who live near you.

Which, I suppose raises the question as to whether sufficient revenue can be gained from the SE11 area. We do have quite a few restaurants around here that might be interested. Although... I suspect you may get quite a few hits on here from people looking for information (or lack of) about the Elephant regeneration.

I'm still keeping an eye out and popping to this website on a fairly regular basis, but have not yet seen anything pop up for the SE11 area. Can you give me any clues as to whether anything might be happening soon?

Also worth looking at the Brixton & London bits of Urban75's message boards. The Brixton bit occasionally strays into SE11, while the London bit occasionally deals with Elephant:
