An extract from the consultation exhibition boards available on the council website

The council proposes to redevelop the former Total and Jet petrol station which is currently used as a car wash.

The development is part of Southwark's scheme to build 11,000 new council homes around the borough.

The 36 flats to be built on Old Kent Road would include a mixture of private and council homes.

The council is hosting a consultation event on Friday 29 January and the draft exhibition panels have already been published.

The scheme is part of the Southwark Regeneration in Partnership Programme which will be built by a private developer working with the council.
