d. Consultation event – High Streets in Southwark. The planning policy team are holding an event on Saturday 18th Jan at the ASDA on the Old Kent Road. This is how they are billing it:

On Saturday 18 January we are holding a community conversation about local high streets. High streets and town centres will be a specific focus of the New Southwark Plan, and we’d really like to hear you views on what’s great, and not so great, about our high streets. The event will be held in Asda on the Old Kent Road on Saturday 18 January. Please come along at any time between 10am and 3pm. Officers will be on hand to discuss issues around Old Kent Road (or other high streets) and there is a short survey.

    I used to travel to London on biuensss and stayed right near the Cathedral and the Market. It is a neat area. Both Bridget Jones’ Diary and a Harry Potter movie shot scenes there and the encircling streets.Paul
