We are local residents, traders and others who have an interest in the regeneration of the Elephant & Castle. We try to engage in planning matters ranging from housing to public realm and sustainable development. We are associated with the Elephant Amenity Network, which is listed as a primary consultee in local planning policy and has 3 guiding principles:
- Open Masterplanning
- Benefits for All
- Housing that really is Affordable
The 35% Campaign was set up as a result of the Heygate regeneration and numerous subsequent developments, failing to meet the Council’s minimum policy requirement of 35% affordable housing, 70% of which social rent.
We don’t believe that the existing regeneration plans are set to benefit all members the local community. Many have either lost our homes or fear for our livelihoods as traders. We don’t believe that our local councillors - from any of the political parties - have represented our best interests through the extensive regeneration that the borough is undergoing.
