Southwark Council has been awarded £50,000 from the Greater London Authority (GLA) to establish the UK's first Creative Enterprise Zone, designed to help boost local creative industry and culture within the borough.

The funding will provide skills, training, education, and community and work space development, along the A202 between Peckham and Camberwell, which will be known as the Peckham to Camberwell Creative Corridor; the council will engage with local businesses, cultural organisations, developers and residents to stimulate further growth in the creative industries in both areas.
