The next Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Community Council meeting is on Tuesday 29 January 2019, 6:30pm at City Hope Church, 121 Drummond Road, SE16 2JY.

The Neighbourhoods Fund 2019-20 is now closed. All funding decisions for 2019/20 projects will be announced at the next meeting this includes Neighbourhoods Fund, Cleaner, Greener and Safer and Devolved Highways

As a special treat we have one of new projects providing two short musical pieces, Unity Music Arts Trust and they are great. The public will also have the opportunity to ask questions and propose the question to the next Council Assembly meeting. We are also having some interactive workshops on Homelessness, Great Estates and Looking after your Environment! It is not to be missed.

Southwark Conversation

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Southwark Conversation.

Late last year, 3,000 people took part in Southwark Council’s most far-reaching consultation, asking you, our residents, how you feel about change in our borough.

Through the conversations we learned a huge amount about what matters to you, and we will use that to inform our council plans and priorities, following detailed analysis over the coming months.

As promised, we've now published an initial report, setting out the key themes that you told us were important to you. You can download the report here.
