The following from Southwark Council’s Chief Executive’s department:
Southwark Council is working with partners and the local community to deliver the Blackfriars Mile, a mile of high quality public realm connecting the river to the Elephant and Castle. Whilst plans are being developed for the streetscape scheme, we are also working to create a new series of events that celebrate and promote the area.
We would love to hear your ideas for events which could be held along or near the road over the next 2 years – please find the attached short brief document which summarises the programme, outlines how you can get involved, and provides a list of previous events to whet your appetite!
We would be grateful if you could forward this open call proposal on to interested neighbours and colleagues and look forward to hearing your proposals by 5pm on friday 6 December 2013 – please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about the brief.
For further information and a latest timeline on the Blackfriars Road streetscape project, please visit www.southwark.gov.uk/blackfriarsroad
