Leathermarket Gardens Community Hub design development

Closed 26 Jan 2023

Opened 21 Dec 2022


Hopefully you have heard about the work we are doing to enhance Leathermarket Gardens and its surrounds.

A local steering group developed a vision and priorities that we consulted on earlier in 2022 with over 100 people taking part. The results showed very high support for improving the local park and open space network and connections, its ecology, climate resilience, providing equal access and more social opportunities. We also heard that people love the current character of Leathermarket Gardens so these designs complement what is already here rather than making big statements.

Since the earlier consultation we have been working to better understand the area, people’s views and their inspiration. We have responded with designs to enhance greening and improve access while creating better spaces, places and local journeys. Now we would like to hear your comments on the latest designs.

Please note this consultation was amended 4 January 2023, with two additional questions. This consultation being carried out by our regeneration team at Southwark Council closes 26 January 2023.


Why your views matter

It is important to get feedback on each stage of design development before finalising designs and delivering the works.

What happens next

Your responses will be included in a Stage 2 Consultation report we expect to publish March 2023. 

The report will be shared, with people who have given their email address (please give your email address towards the end of this questionnaire if you would like to receive feedback) and on the council’s website.

Works based on the design proposals are expected to start Summer 2023.
