Consultation

What is happening now?

The Oval and Kennington Development Area (OAKDA) draft Masterplan underwent a 6 week community consultation from Wednesday 4th November to Wednesday 16th December.

During this time, we invited the community to feed back their views on the proposed plans, which is an essential component of the masterplan process. The purpose of the draft Masterplan is to inform a change to Lambeth's Local Plan so the area can be released for redevelopment. To view what is happening next, please visit the home page.

Following the draft masterplan consultation at the end of 2015, Berkeley have been working with Lambeth to collate and review all of the feedback received by the community. Following this process Berkeley and Lambeth agreed amendments to the proposals and revised the masterplan where appropriate, updates were provided to the community regarding the changes in April 2016.

The final iteration of the masterplan to be presented to the September Cabinet was released to a final community exhibition on Monday 18th July at the Kia Oval.

What is Berkeley doing differently?

Berkeley has pioneered a toolkit that looks at people's quality of life and the strength of a community.
