Elephant Links regeneration partnership is one of the key partners delivering the regeneration at Elephant and Castle. The primary aim of Elephant Links is to ensure that the local community is able to benefit from the opportunities the large-scale redevelopment will bring.

Working with the community

Southwark Council has been working closely with the local community to ensure that all residents are prepared for the regeneration.

 A range of social and economic programmes have been implemented for local people through the Elephant Links Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) programme, and steps are in place to continue these initiatives when SRB funding ends in March 2006.

 The Council has also embarked on a comprehensive consultation programme to inform people of the regeneration plans.  A number of exhibitions took place this summer at various locations throughout the borough.  An extensive referencing exercise has also been undertaken on the Heygate Estate, where residents are being visited by a specialised team of officers to assess their needs.
