In light of the current social distancing measures, we understand that it is difficult to conduct face-to-face consultation events. However, we are keen to demonstrate a willingness to engage with local residents despite the impact of Covid-19.

We will use a mix of digital and physical communication channels to compensate for the lack of face-to-face consultation activities, share information on our proposals and to gather feedback from the local community. As an alternative to face-to-face events, we will be gathering feedback online, via phone calls, virtual meetings and a postal survey.

In the coming weeks, a postal exhibition brochure will be sent to nearby residents. It will include details and visualisations of our proposals to give residents a clear understanding of what we are proposing. Details of the proposals will also be made available on this consultation website. Feedback will be obtained via an online survey and a freepost survey. We will also offer the opportunity for virtual meetings with interested residents.

Although much development has come forward in recent years to support Elephant and Castle and provide new opportunities, there has not been a hotel development brought forward in the local area.

Given the location in Zone 1, the transport connections close to the site and the future developments coming forward in the area, a hotel will complement the recent development seen in Elephant and Castle, provide a new hub for activity and support additional job opportunities.

A hotel will support local businesses and institutions (including the London College of Communications and South Bank University, which are both growing) in accommodating visitors in their locality.

Moreover, the proposals do not just offer a hotel – there will be a new food and drink offer for local residents as well as workspace for small, local businesses based in Southwark.

The proposals will deliver a new 89-room lifestyle hotel for Elephant and Castle.

As part of the proposals, the lower floors of the building will provide new workspace. The proposed workspace will provide an uplift of employment space within the site with new, high-quality flexible space that is ready for modern uses. This includes making the space fully accessible and more sustainable.

The proposals for 21 St George’s Road will deliver 718 sqm of new workspace, including a proportion of new affordable workspace to support local businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (10% of floorspace).

We anticipate this workspace will be tailored for small, local businesses based within Southwark. We welcome your thoughts on how this can be used by the local community or any businesses you know that may be interested in the space.

The proposed redevelopment will include a c.120sqm publicly accessible restaurant unit on the ground floor available for public use.

The restaurant will be used by both guests of the hotel and local residents. This will open the currently closed off building to the local community and provide space for local people to enjoy.

We are planning to submit the proposals in Summer 2021 with planning permission granted by the end of 2021.

We aim to start construction on site towards the end of 2022 and expect the site to be completed and operational by mid-2024.

The proposed building will be 15 storeys with two additional storeys at basement level.

Our proposals will carefully consider the setting of the Elliott’s Row Pocket Park. The new building design will also provide an opportunity to complement the pocket park by improving the visual appearance of the park’s backdrop and installing a green living wall.

In addition, we are looking to work closely with both the volunteers that manage the space and the local residents that use the park throughout the planning process to explore further opportunities to complement and improve the park if there is local interest.
