The Built Environment in Southwark:
What’s next for the Borough?

Tuesday 18th October 2016, 8am – 10am

Garry Weston Library, Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge, SE1 9DA

Sheher Saaz Chartered Town Planners, Snapdragon Consulting and Rolfe Judd are delighted to invite you to our Southwark breakfast event to explore the future of the Built Environment in Southwark.

For a number of years, Southwark has been one of the busiest Boroughs in development terms and with the Old Kent Road Area Action Plan out to consultation, and other areas for regeneration being eyed by the Council, that is likely to continue. As such, we have assembled an expert panel to discuss the future of development in Southwark,

Each panellist will give their perspective on development in Southwark, which will be followed by a Q&A session with all of the speakers.

Our panelists are:

Councillor Mark Williams is the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and New Homes at Southwark Council. Having been elected in 2011 to represent Brunswick Park Ward, he was quickly elevated to the Cabinet by Cllr Peter John and now oversees the council’s sustainable regeneration programme.

Angus has helped oversee the transformation of the group’s portfolio, including in Southwark. The Biscuit Factory, Metal Box and The Print Rooms are three Workspace centres in Southwark that have recently been transformed. 

Richard Kalmar is the Managing Director of South London estate agents KALMARs and independent property advisors. He joined his father at KALMARs in 1977, and has worked continued to practice ever since. He is also the Chair of the Southwark Chamber of Commerce.
Rebekah Paczek is the Managing Director of Built Environment communications specialists, Snapdragon Consulting. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Rebekah set up Snapdragon Consulting in 2010 and has worked on a number of planning projects in Southwark and across London.
