Join the Old Kent Road Business Network


The Old Kent Road Area Action Plan (AAP) sets out a vision and strategy for the Old Kent Road area over the next 20 years. The area will see significant change, including at least 20,000 new homes; provision of a range of business and workspaces contributing to 10,000 additional jobs in the area; a revitalised high street; and new tube stations on the Bakerloo Line extension.

We know that incorporating industrial businesses within residential developments will be challenging. As part of the regeneration of the Old Kent Road we want to understand what kind of space existing businesses think should be provided.

The Old Kent Road Business Network is being established to help us engage with businesses as we continue to develop planning policies for the Old Kent Road opportunity area. We will use the network to ensure that businesses have up-to-date information about the Old Kent Road opportunity area. Feedback from the Network will be used to better understand the requirements and aspirations of existing businesses in the area and inform the types of new business space that are built. In the longer term it will be used to help create a database of businesses that would be interested in occupying new space in existing or new developments.

Join our network to guide the future of business in the Old Kent Road area. Please visit our dedicated Old Kent Road Business Engagement Programme webpages here. We have listened to the concerns of businesses in the AAP process so far and we have provided some further information for businesses and developers in our Frequently Asked Questions which can be viewed on this Consultation Hub or the website above.
