Elephant & Castle Regeneration

Lend Lease and Southwark Council working together to transform the area

Lend Lease

Our regeneration plans will improve existing transport connections,
and make it easier for people to walk and cycle around the area.

In many ways, our plans for Elephant & Castle will return the streetscape back to what it was before bombing in World War Two caused severe damage to the area. Streets to the north and south of our new development on the Elephant Park will be reconnected and also those to the east and west by the railway viaduct, shopping centre and Elephant Road.

Streets will be active, connected, safer and more hospitable, with generous footpaths, landscaping and places to sit down along the way.


Elephant Effect

We’re promoting car clubs instead of car ownership. We’re creating secure bike parking spaces for every one of our new homes. We’re making it easier and more attractive to explore London on foot.
