Saving Southwark is a collective of residents, individuals and groups who believe that are worried about Southwark council’s planning policies.

Much like the 35% campaign, Saving Southwark is a collective of residents, individuals and groups who believe that are worried about Southwark council’s planning policies.

The believe that far too many tower blocks are being given planning consent. As a result, they state that many loved and valued older buildings have been destroyed, or are scheduled for demolition.

They echo the view of many of Southwark’s residents, particularly in the north of the borough, that these policy decisions threaten to ruin Southwark’s heritage and break up its communities.

Ultimately they are campaigning for the inclusion of local residents in the decisions that affect their lives, and they look to co-operate with and support other like-minded groups.

Their campaign originated in 2013 (previously under the banner Southwark residents say no).
