The new Elephant and Castle?

A vision of Southwark Council's ambitious £1.5bn regeneration of Elephant and Castle Credit: Southwark Council

As part of Southwark Council's ambitious £1.5billion regeneration of Elephant and Castle, the council and it's development partner Lend Lease are undertaking a process of consultation on the proposed state-of-the-art facilities at this popular part of central London.

Residents and local people have long asked for a new facility to replace the tired existing building, and for the new plans to specifically include a swimming pool, the first on site for over a decade - the previous pool closed over 10 years ago.

The plans have already been shaped by consultation by those who care most about the facilities, but now more developed plans will see the vision turn to reality.
