Elephant and Castle

My Elephant

We are leading a £3bn programme in the Elephant and Castle, which will create a new exciting destination for London over the next 15 years.

Elephant and Castle facts


The regeneration will include the creation of a new pedestrianised town centre, market square, 5,000 new and replacement homes, up to 450,000 square feet of retail space, an integrated public transport hub, new green spaces.

Local people will benefit from a dramatically improved physical environment with tree lined streets, high quality open spaces and a largely traffic free environment. They will also enjoy access to more local jobs and training opportunities, and new cultural and leisure facilities.

To set out the overall plan for how development in the area should happen in the next 15 years, we are preparing a supplementary planning document (SPD) for the Elephant and Castle opportunity area. Find out more and get involved.

For an update on the wider regeneration you can view the Elephant and Castle place making October 2015 report submitted to the council's cabinet.
