Let's talk about... Old Kent Road

Community conversation

Old Kent Road has been designated by the Greater London Authority as an Opportunity Area for London.

This means that the development of new homes, businesses, shops and community spaces will be considered, as with other Opportunity Areas across London.

The aim will be to increase the quality of life for people living, working, shopping, going out, and worshipping in the area. As well as helping to meet the needs of a capital with a rapidly growing population. Our planning policies must reflect the views of those who know and understand the area best. We will be preparing a new plan for the area to help guide growth over the next 20 years.

Most recent community forum meeting.

We held the eleventh Old Kent Road Community Forum meeting on Wednesday 14 September, at New Covenant Church, 506-510 Old Kent Rd.

The meetings gave us all a chance to talk about all aspects of transport issues on the Old Kent Road, with some expert presentations from Transport for London to help us understand the options for transport improvements.
