Local Centre Proposal
There is a proposal to create a new local centre on Camberwell New Road in the Southwark Borough Plan.
The idea behind it is to get the surrounding area seen as a "place", rather than just an area which is driven through. The area has a rich history of local commercial, industrial, educational, religious and artistic communities, with many of these original building uses created as far back as Georgian times preserved today.
Below, the potential contributors to a local centre designation can be seen outlined in blue. The proposed development site of Wyndham Redcar is shaded red, and the existing Camberwell Area Plan area is shaded in green.
This includes a proposal to create a new walking route to enhance permeability which used to characterise the area in the 19th Century, but which began to dwindle with the age of mass car ownership.
