3. LSBU St George's Quarter Redevelopment Exhibition. Public Exhibition: 4th- 23rd September 2017, Clarence Centre, 103 Borough Road, London SE1 0AA

News from London Southbank University...

We previously wrote to you about our development proposals for St George's Quarter, part of our Southwark campus. You will recall that the plans for St George's Quarter include retaining the frontage and flank wall of the grade II listed former chapel on Borough Road, new open spaces and a new library, lecture theatres and performance spaces.

We are now writing to invite you to attend a public exhibition of our proposals. The exhibition will be held at the Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation, 6 St George's Circus, SE1 6FE and will be open to the public for three weeks from Monday 4September to Friday 22 September 2017 between the hours of 10am and 6pm (excluding weekends).

Three drop-in events will be taking place on the following dates with members of the design team on hand to answer any queries:
·        Monday 4th September, 12noon - 2pm
·        Saturday 9th September, 10am - 1pm
·        Thursday 14th September, 5 - 7pm
The team is keen to engage with you and I do hope you will be able to attend the exhibition on one of these days.  If you do plan to come, please contact our planning consultants to confirm (Iyabo Johnson, BDP (t) 020 7812 8282 (e)iyabo.johnson@bdp.com).

6. Newington Library Building - Temporary Use.

The Newington Library building has now re-opened with a temporary use while the longer term plans for it and the Walworth Town Hall are developed. The building has been leased to Art Academy for at least the next two years.

The former main library room is home to a free public exhibition called Natural Selection by Andy and Peter Holden. Part of the exhibition is also being held in the basement so there is an opportunity to look in that part of the building too.

Below are the details of the opening times of the exhibition which has been created by Art Angel.


...and some images of the building with the hoardings removed from the outside.

...and from the exhibition...
