The leader of Southwark Council has said he is "delighted" over the regeneration of Elephant and Castle, as the London Mayor launched the £3 billion transformation project today.
Councillor Peter John said:
There is now great momentum behind the changes, with more than 500 new homes and the leisure centre already under construction, and the demolition of the Heygate just around the corner.
We've been working towards this for such a long time with our development partners Lend Lease, and it's great to see all the key players like the GLA and TfL coming together to transform the Elephant & Castle into a fantastic place to live, work and visit.
