In April, Transport for London starts work on a new traffic system at Elephant & Castle. The reconfiguration will make the busy roundabout more pedestrian and cycle-friendly, and create green space in the middle. It’s all part of the master plan for this fast-changing area.

Coinciding with this is the launch of 593-home West Grove, pictured, the latest phase of Elephant Park, a new neighbourhood being built on the site of bulldozed Heygate Estate. It includes the biggest park to be created in London for 70 years. A mix of towers, mid-rise and low-rise blocks will be separated by landscaped courtyards, orchards and woodland, plus allotments for residents. Prices start at £415,000.

Southwark council has also reached agreement with the owner of the famous pink-coloured shopping centre for its complete redevelopment, which is a crucial step forward for this Zone 1 district.
