You are cordially invited to a neighbourhood event at Crossways Church SE17 1SL organised by the Elephant Amenity Network on 28th January 2012.
The council is currently developing and consulting on a planning document (the “SPD”) which is to set the planning framework for our area for 10 years. It makes proposals for
development sites (including identifying buildings which may be demolished as well as those to be protected)
overall building heights and mix of types
transport – parking levels, walking and cycling routes
need for facilities such as schools, student accommodation, and other services
green areas to be developed or protected
It divides the Elephant into “character areas” (neighbourhoods) and makes some detailed plans – but it is critical that people who live and/or work in the area are involved – this is a real opportunity to influence the future!
The event starts at 10:30 sharp, and the morning will have detailed workshops on each character area – you are free to choose the one most relevant to you. The morning events runs to 13:00 when refreshments will be served.
In the afternoon (from about 13:45) we will start three area-wide workshops on housing/sustainability, green links and shopping/employment. The event ends at about 16:00.
There will be speakers from the council, and from other neighbourhood forums in SE London.
