Welcome to our new website!

You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

Evidence base

The following research and reports make up the evidence base that supports the policies and guidance set out in our planning policy documents: our Core Strategy, saved Southwark Plan, Area Action Plans and Supplementary Planning Documents.

These studies cover topics that include housing, infrastructure, environment, economy and design. Our planning documents are in line with other council plans and strategies such as the Southwark Corporate Plan and the Sustainable community strategy.

Certain planning policy documents are required to undergo an Examination in Public before they can be adopted by the council. As part of the preparation for an Examination, the Council is required to provide a Core Document List, which lists all of the supporting documents and evidence that underpin the policies in the proposed plan. 

Links to the Core Document Lists for the Core Strategy, Canada Water Area Action Plan and Peckham and Nunhead Area Action Plan can be found by following these links.
