The 15th issue of Southwark magazine will be published this summer.

The new edition of the regeneration magazine will explore ongoing development projects and investment opportunities in the borough.

Introducing the new issue, editorial director Siobhán Crozier said: “The 15th edition of Southwark highlights some of the fine public buildings, facilities and spaces delivered within regeneration programmes in the borough, by the council, its partners and other organisations.

“We also speak to many of the businesses which have chosen to relocate to Southwark, placing it firmly in the central London commercial market.”

The magazine will describe how the council is developing public places for the community – libraries, community centres, parks – and how it has managed to deliver innovative public buildings – such as the Tate Modern extension and The Castle centre – despite the cuts in funding imposed to local authorities across the country.

It will also look at the growth of the area’s commercial centres, including the now fully let Shard.

A section will focus on the radical changes happening in Peckham, involving regeneration schemes such as Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Peckham Levels, Peckham Palms, Peckham Library Square and Copeland Park.
