Civic Space

Closed 26 Nov 2019

Opened 15 Oct 2019


Our masterplan looks to contribute to Southwark’s legacy as a cultural hub. We would like to provide affordable workspace for local groups.  

We could also provide retail space to promote the local economy and help attract more independent businesses to the area. Residents have told us they feel strongly about this.

Our consultation feedback showed a number of respondents like the green and open character of Isabella Street. We are considering extending the link with Blackfriars Road and the area around the skylight, improving the public space.  

“I think one of the strengths of South Bank area is the mixed use of spaces, there are commercial spaces, residential buildings, offices, academics, art spaces, hotels, and more. That makes the area to be interesting and alive 24/7.” – Consultation One respondent
