The first stages of development for the £1.2 million regeneration of Nunhead are nearing completion, Southwark Council has announced.

Work to improve shop fronts across the town cente is set to be completed next month. Demolition has also begun at Nunhead Lane, where council homes are being built, and work on a new community centre and improvements to Nunhead Green are about to start.

The project is funded using £438,000 from the mayor of London's Outer London Fund, over £700,000 from Southwark Council, £30,000 from the Pocket Parks initiative, set up by the Greater London Authority, and £80,000 from the London Marathon Charitable Trust.

Councillor Fiona Colley, cabinet member for regeneration, said: "Nunhead is a unique area with a strong sense of community and a parade of great independent local shops.

“The green and pub give the centre a village feel and the idea has always been to encourage and build on this positive environment, making the brand new community centre a focus for people to come together."
