Southwark Park Consultation

Closed 10 Apr 2016

Opened 10 Mar 2016

Feedback expected 30 Jun 2016


In March 2015, Southwark Council consulted with local residents and park users on a number of options to improve Southwark Park. Some of the outcomes of this consultation are summarised below:

  • Many of those who responded would like to see a new building, which will house public toilets, a new café and a park office, located within or adjacent to the existing Café Gallery.
  • Of the three options put forward for the redevelopment of the nursery site, those who responded to the consultation were most likely to prefer the idea of an access-only area for school or community use.

The council is in now developing the plans for the new building and nursery site based on the feedback received last March and is now inviting further feedback on a number of options to inform the development of these areas.

What happens next

The consultation has now closed. We are reading the responses and will publish what happens next here by the end of June.
