We aim to support and empower local people to be able to influence major redevelopments affecting the environment they live in.

People may be concerned about issues such as genuinely affordable homes or maintaining and extending green space in the Borough.

We provide group training and workshops on planning issues and one to one support for local residents and small businesses impacted by major development

We contribute to local and national initiatives such as climate emergency strategies

We aim to work with Southwark council to ensure that planning decisions are made fairly and the needs of the community are considered.
