Belong In Bermondsey’ discussion session series

Grosvenor’s ‘Belong In Bermondsey‘ will soon be holding three discussion sessions on these themes, at which we hope to hear more from those who know this neighbourhood best. Hearing from you will enable us to ensure local views are reflected in our draft masterplan, which we continue to work on.

The sessions are open to anyone who would like to attend, so please do share and join if you can.

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, part of the privately owned Grosvenor Group, creates high-quality places for people to enjoy and which use resources responsibly. Over the last four centuries, they have guided the evolution of some of the world’s most celebrated urban neighbourhoods, including Belgravia, Mayfair and Liverpool city centre.

Grosvenor owns the majority of the former Biscuit Factory and Lewisham and Southwark College campus sites in Bermondsey, totalling approximately 12 acres. By bringing these two special sites together they hope to improve upon the existing plans, and deliver even more benefits for local people.

During public consultation on their early thinking for how they could create a new part of this neighbourhood,  a number of important themes emerged that they would like to explore further with your help. These are:

Respecting and celebrating Bermondsey’s heritage.

Tuesday 17th May, 7-8pm, Community Hall, 100 Clements Road

We would like to hear your views on the importance of heritage in Bermondsey, and understand its meaning to different people. We will consider the materials and architectural references that characterise Bermondsey, and discuss how heritage can be incorporated into new buildings. We would also love to hear more about the social history of the area, and particularly influential individuals.

Designing new streets and open spaces for Bermondsey

Thursday 2nd June, 7-8pm, Community Hall, 100 Clements Road

We would like to hear which streets and open spaces you think work particularly well in this neighbourhood, and which don’t. We are interested in what types of open spaces you think are missing, and will also consider how spaces can be designed to maximise safety, integration and interactivity, as well as the role of lighting, planting, space for children to play, etc.

Creating an integrated new part of this neighbourhood.

Thursday 23rd June, 7-8pm, Four Squares TRA Hall, Marden Square, Drummond Road

We would like to hear how physically and socially integrated people believe this part of the neighbourhood is. We will consider if and how you would like it to be more integrated, and the role of amenities such as the school, community facilities, open spaces and new routes.

The findings of the first phase of consultation have been published and are accessible via our downloads page.If you would like a hard copy please do contact Kate.
