film club will be offering live audio description through a
tour guide system and headsets for this screening.

SOUTHWARK PLANNING POLICY - COMMUNITY CONVERSATION
Saturday 18 January
10am-3pm  at Asda, 464-504 Old Kent Road
Over the coming months, the council will be developing the
new Southwark Plan which is the framework for all land use
and development in Southwark. The plan will influence
residents' local environment by setting down how the area
they live and work in is protected and developed over the
next 15 to 20 years. The consultation with residents has
opened and the council is keen to know what residents think
is important about the places where they live, work and
visit. This includes things like transport, pathways, cycle
and pedestrian routes - they'd like to know how people get
to different places, what they think of the destination and
what they would like the places to offer under a wide range
of subjects such as leisure, recreation, housing and
transport. The council also needs to know what is important
- what features of the local area are precious, iconic or
need to be protected, and what areas need development, seem
good spaces for housing or shopping and how this would fit
in with the surrounding area. The council also wants to know
about what people think about their high streets and
existing shopping areas. The council also needs to know what
and who these local places should be for - what's missing in
terms of provision for different sorts of people and their
unique circumstances. Officers are especially keen to hear
from business owners.
