Angel Oak Academy and Wickway Community Centre Regeneration Consultation
About the Programme
Southwark has committed to building 11,000 new council homes by 2043, with 1,500 by 2018. Under our local lettings policy, half of these homes will be offered to residents on the housing waiting list in that neighbourhood. This will help people stay close to friends, family and local schools. The new homes will be of the highest quality and be on traditional council tenancies and council rents making them truly affordable.
The Southwark Regeneration in Partnership Programme (SRPP) forms part of this ambitious plan and is one of the delivery options the council is using to achieve this ambitious target. It is hoped that this programme will produce approximately 500 new council homes, with 300 by 2018. In addition the council recognises the growing importance of intermediate housing in providing an affordable housing option for those who would not normally qualify for a traditional council tenancy, therefore a key element of SRPP will be to provide high quality housing at discounted market rents for local residents and key workers.

About the Consultation Event
This event is the third public consultation that will give you the opportunity to discuss the initial draft proposal with the project team. To make sure we are able to accommodate as many people as possible, we will be running three 1 hour focus group sessions. Each focus group will hold a maximum of 30 people, so it is essential that you reserve a place.
Please book a place at one of the three sessions offered. If you have any difficulty please email us at email@example.com. If you do not wish to participate in a focus session, the proposal will be on available online. If you are unable to book a ticket please feel free to come down to Wickway Community Centre on the 13th of September where the boards will also be on show.
