Elephant & Castle plans to go on show

The proposals for the £1 billion regeneration of the Elephant and Castle will be unveiled on Friday 6 June at the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre.

The plans, including a model of the transformed area, will be on display on the first floor of the Shopping Centre between Friday 6 and Monday 9 June. Members of the council's regeneration team will be on hand to explain the plans and answer questions on Friday from 12 noon to 6.30pm and on Saturday and Monday from 10am to 6.30pm.

The display marks the start of a three month public consultation period.

Catherine Bowman, Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: "The redevelopment is centred around meeting the needs of the local residents, at the same time as revitalising the area for the benefit of all. We hope as many people as possible come along, see the plans and give their comments."

Following the initial display, the stand will travel to various locations around the Elephant and Castle. From Friday 6 June copies of the proposed plans, known as the Framework For Development, will be available from public libraries, Council buildings and the Southwark Council website.

During the consultation period the public can make their views felt via a special infomation line – 020 7525 4939 – or by writing to Kallaway Ltd, PO Box 31604, London W11 4WL.

The public consultation period closes in September. After which plans will be formally agreed with the first work starting in early 2004.
