Keep your email coming to <firstname.lastname@example.org>! ======================================================= >> N E W S A N D E V E N T S ======================================================= [ Elephant & Castle plans unveiled ] You have got until Saturday to check out the plans of the three shortlisted consortia for the multi-million pound redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle at a special exhibition above Tesco Metro on the first floor of the shopping centre. The exhibition is open Thursday and Friday 8.30am to 8.00pm and Saturday 10am to 4.30pm. In the final stages of Southwark Council's competition to select a final partner for the development, the consortia (London Amsterdam / Countryside Consortium, St George Consortium and Southwark Land Regeneration plc) have now revealed their proposals for the regeneration of the 170 acre-site, including housing, transport, retail and business, open spaces and leisure. Southwark Council leader Stephanie Elsy said: "This is an exciting time for the Elephant. We are at the beginning of a fifteen year project to transform Elephant and Castle into a place where people want to live, work and spend leisure time." Cathedral Ward Lib Dem councillor added: "I hope the final partner, once selected, will bring all of their experience of working with local communities to bear on the Elephant & Castle project. It is important that everyone gains from the regeneration of the area and the consortium will be expected to work closely with local people." The council will make a final selection of development partner on 21 June.

It's divided into six main sections - Discovering, Get Involved, Living, Future Southwark, Business and News & Events. The site features council press releases, a database of events, details of recent planning applications and a guide to attractions in Southwark. There is also information on councillors' surgeries.
