Old Kent Road

Southwark Council are working on major new plans to redevelop and improve the Old Kent Road area and make significant changes in favour of those who would like to walk and cycle and as a place to live. As part of this they are holding regular community forum meetings and people are invited to the second of these next Thursday 26th March. The meeting will be held at Pembroke House, 7pm (80 Tatum Street, London SE17 1QR). A poster for the event is attached.
