Residents and employees in SE1 are invited to have their say about initial design concepts for a new scheme.
The Waterloo City Square scheme intends to transform the area around the IMAX roundabout and along Waterloo Road to The Cut/ Lower Marsh, which is currently unconnected, confusing and difficult to navigate. The aim is to create a high quality, attractive, welcoming public space which will be easier for local residents, employees, commuters and visitors to use.
Local people are encouraged to attend the public consultation events or view the designs online. Their opinions on how the ideas meet the design brief and local requirements will be an important element of the selection process.
Following the consultation, the judging panel will meet to consider the design teams' entries, taking into account the results of the public consultation and technical panel review. A decision is expected in March 2009.
The judging panel comprises the landowners and other stakeholders who have come together to improve this area for the benefit of local residents, employees, commuters and visitors: Greater London Authority, London Development Agency, Transport for London, London Borough of Lambeth, British Film Institute, Coin Street Community Builders, P&O, CABE (space), Network Rail, Southbank Centre, King's College London, National Theatre and Shell.
