Is the 1000-year old dominance of the North Bank of the Thames over the South Bank coming to an end as development brings new jobs, commercial space and homes south of the river?
Tour A: Canada Water to London Bridge – Led by Jon Abbott and James Oates, Southwark Council
Delegates got the tube to Canada Water to meet their tour guides before visiting the top of Barratt's Maple Court residential scheme to discuss the change planned for Canada Water, before walking to Grosvenor's site at the old Biscuit Factory and then down to London Bridge Quarter, Science Gallery and Cancer Centre with London Bridge station.
Tour B: Bankside and Blackfriars Mile – led by Dan Taylor, Regeneration Co-ordinator, Southwark Council
Starting at South Bank Tower, this tour walked towards Blackfriars Bridge to update on the regeneration plans for Blackfriars Mile, walking past the much-discussed Tate extension and finishing at London Bridge, taking in key projects and strategies along the way.
Tour C: South Bank and Waterloo – Led by Iago Griffiths, Regeneration Project Officer, LB Lambeth
This tour discussed key projects in this major area of change, looking at the Southbank Centre, Elizabeth House and the Shell Centre, exploring plans around Leake Street and Lower Marsh, and finishing at the Imax to hear what is in store for the roundabout.
Tour D: South Bank culture tour – led by Mark Davy, Founder, Futurecity
This tour formed a narrative around the cultural industry along London’s Southbank from Blackfriars to Battersea, with stops including South Bank Tower and Damien Hirst's hotly-anticipated new Newport Street Gallery amongst others.
