Old Kent Road

Old Kent Road

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 15th Dec 2017

Once maligned as the least desirable monopoly property, Old Kent Road is set for huge change – designated as an Opportunity Area capable of accommodating 20,000 new homes and 5,000 additional jobs, alongside a proposed extension to the Central Activities Zone, further enhancing its important role within London’s economy.

Home to a diverse range of occupiers – including 15 major couriers, 57 construction-related businesses, logistics and production companies, alongside breweries, commercial caterers and wholesale bakeries, and new digital businesses – Southwark Council’s new framework seeks to recognise the benefit of maintaining industrial activities in the area. Aiming to set a precedent for the possibilities of integrating mixed-use residential/industrial developments – including retaining elements of existing ‘heavy’ industry so commonly excluded from residential development plans – the framework also deals with how to shape an area set to receive tall towers, two new station sites as part of the Bakerloo line extension, alongside a revitalised high street.

Launching the consultation of the second AAP, this event will explore the capacity for innovative mixed-use development and the opportunities for the community and wider London, asking how the framework will satisfy growth targets whilst enhancing the existing character of this successful economic area to create a new mixed-use quarter for London.

Cost: Free of Charge
