London Borough of Southwark are working with community organisations including Blue Bermondsey BID to invest £2m of funding from the Mayor of London to revitalise The Blue town centre ( www.bluebermondsey.co.uk/madeinbermondsey to find out more)
Southwark council has recently acquired the old Thorowgoods furniture store at 223 Southwark Park Road and their property team are busy making repairs to the building, which include significant roof works. Whilst this work goes on they are now starting the search for a commercial operator who can create a use for the building which brings as much footfall as possible to the town centre.

Revitalising The Blue
Made in Bermondsey is the name chosen for 2m regeneration programme to revitalise the Blue, which was once Bermondsey’s historic town centre.
A community campaign led by Blue Bermondsey BID with local charities Community Opportunity and Big Local Works was successful in securing the £2m capital funding from the Mayor of London’s LEAP Good Growth Fund after forward thinking staff at Southwark Council suggested a joint submission and helped to shape the application.
