Draft Old Kent Road AAP

More information

Together with the Greater London Authority, we're preparing a new plan for the Old Kent Road and surrounding area. This follows the Mayor of London formally designating the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area in the London Plan. The plan provides a vision and objectives as well as policies on:

  • a strategy for growth in business and industry including doubling the number of jobs
  • locations for 20,000 new homes, including new council homes
  • a revitalised high street with shopping and town centre facilities
  • the design and heights of buildings and spaces
  • improvements for pedestrians and cyclists, including new links and making existing routes safer
  • public transport improvements, including an extension to the Bakerloo Line and new underground stations
  • the infrastructure needed to support growth such as schools, open space and public realm, health and other community facilities
