11,000 New Council Homes - Bells Gardens

Closed 28 Mar 2019

Opened 14 Feb 2019

Results Updated 1 Aug 2019

Our consultation began in February 2019, and since then there have been two meetings with a project group of local residents and community group members. See immediately below for the presentation boards explained by the building and landscape architects at the project group meeting held on the 31 July.



Southwark Council has made a commitment to deliver 11,000 new homes in Southwark by 2043, with 2,500 delivered by 2022. To make this a success we need to know what residents think and make sure residents shape our proposals.

As part of our commitment, we are considering development on the site located at 19 Buller Close, Bells Gardens:

  • new homes
  • re-provision of the community facility, amenities and multi-use games area.

Why We Are Consulting

We consult with residents about our proposals as part of our commitment to deliver new council homes. We want residents to be included in choosing the best development option for the area.

The council began the consultation with a drop-in event on 13 February 2019. Residents and other stakeholders had the opportunity to meet the project team and give their comments about the proposed development of the estate, which the architects have taken into account with their initial designs for the site, displayed here.




What Happens Next

Our architects are developing the plans and taking into account the issues raised in the feedback which we received. We are also commissioning further surveys to inform the design. We will hold another public drop-in event before the planning application is finally submmited. Further project group meetings will be held before this is done.
