Library closures - 13 and 14 August 2022

Due to the extreme heat and high temperatures inside, some of our libraries will be closed on Saturday and Sunday (13 and 14 August). They include Peckham, Dulwich, John Harvard, Camberwell and Brandon. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.

We're leading a 15 year, £4bn regeneration programme in Elephant and Castle.

The programme began in 2010, and when complete it will have delivered:

  • at least 5,000 new and replacement homes
  • a new, pedestrianised town centre
  • vastly improved transport infrastructure, including a new ticket hall for the Northern line tube station
  • up to 450,000 square feet of new retail space and a £20m new leisure centre
  • a greener environment with better parks and more open spaces
  • 10,000 new jobs as well as thousands of training opportunities
  • an enriched cultural scene including art, theatre, leisure and heritage
Regeneration website
The Elephant and Castle Partnership website explains what’s happening in the area and includes regular updates on progress. It also has an interactive map that shows all the regeneration projects in the neighbourhood

For background to the project see the 2012 Supplementary Planning document for Elephant and Castle.
