Local Area Analysis
Camberwell is set to benefit hugely from the planned Elephant & Castle regeneration scheme. With over £1.5bn earmarked for the project, it is set to have a major impact on amenities and subsequently housing prices throughout the whole area. The council are working in partnership with a commercial developer to regenerate the whole area, using the framework for development as planning guidance. By setting the agenda in this way, Southwark Council has adopted an extremely radical approach. Major regeneration projects are rarely led by the public sector – schemes of a similar scale, for example the King’s Cross redevelopment, are more usually initiated by private developers. The fact that the council is also the major landowner in the area gives it an unprecedented level of control and will ensure that the main points on the agenda are adhered to. The key features of the Elephant and Castle framework for development include: • • • • • • • • • • • • Demolition of the shopping centre and Heygate Estate Rehousing of Heygate Estate residents into high quality social housing in the Elephant and Castle area Removal of the congested road system and rerouting of traffic out of the core area Creation of a new pedestrian-friendly town centre Development of 5, 300 new homes Creation of 75,000m2 of modern retail and leisure facilities Design of an improved transport interchange Creation of two new parks Addition of two extra schools, including a city academy Creation of over 4,000 new jobs as a result of these changes Adoption of a range of innovative measures to minimise energy consumption Quality design at the heart of the plans

The planned regeneration will be on a scale rarely seen in Europe since the war. It will rival the Olympic regeneration project and as a result, property prices should see similar levels of growth over the coming years.
