Together with the Greater London Authority we are preparing a new plan for the Old Kent Road and surrounding area. We are currently consulting on the draft Old Kent Road Area Action Plan from 17 June 2016 to 4 November 2016. The plan will guide and manage new development and growth in the area over the next 20 years. It provides a vision and objectives as well as policies on:

  • A strategy for growth in jobs and businesses
  • Locations for 20,000 new homes, including new council homes
  • A revitalised high street with shopping and town centre facilities
  • The design and heights of buildings and spaces
  • Improvements for pedestrians and cyclists, including new links and making existing routes safer
  • Public transport improvements including an extension to the Bakerloo Line and two new underground stations
  • The infrastructure that will be needed to support growth such as schools, open space and public realm, health and other community facilities


We have established the Old Kent Road Community Forum to explore the opportunities around the Old Kent Road and the way in which it may change over the coming years. The forums are very well attended and host lively and interesting discussion.

The next Community Forum event will take place between 7pm and 9pm on Wednesday 14 September 2016 at New Covenant Church, Old Kent Road.

A workshop for young people will also take place between 4.30pm - 7pm on Wednesday 7 September 2016 at New Covenant Church.
