Southwark Planning Network (SPN)
The SPN grew out of the list of community people who took part in the Core Strategy Public Hearings in 2010. Using the successful experience of developing the PPN, Eileen Conn, co-ordinator of Peckham Vision, has applied the lessons to the SPN on a similar model. The SPN is now meeting regularly for mutual support across the different main neighbourhoods in Southwark on planning policy and other mutual interests. Currently this is mainly the development of the New Southwark Plan (NSP) and how to develop more effective and genuine ways for local communities to shape the policies as they affect the local neighbourhoods. An election hustings on planning and regeneration is being arranged for Saturday 14th April 2018.
