We Made That worked with local stakeholders to develop a catalogue of projects that aims to celebrate Walworth’s unique character, help build resilience of what exists today and contribute to knitting together gaps between development. In the context of widespread regeneration in the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area and the Heygate Estate redevelopment, the project seeks to deliver value to the local community. A particular feature of the project has been to work together with traders on East Street Market, the Walworth Society and local community groups to generate ideas to ensure that the area has a vibrant future.
Proposals include precursors to future functions that will be introduced to Old Kent Road, including opportunities for physical enhancement and activation of new open spaces on the high street.
A range of projects from the strategy have also been delivered by the London Borough of Southwark and local partners, including improvements to East Street Market and the East Street Exchange.
