A new town centre is emerging at Elephant and Castle

Works are well underway to create a new town centre at Elephant and Castle which will bring a transformed environment for local people with close to 1,000 new homes, an upgraded tube station, and a cutting-edge new campus for London College of Communication, UAL.

A vision for the future

Working together with the local community, the new town centre will rejuvenate the wider area , ensuring Elephant and Castle continues to be one of London’s most dynamic and vibrant destinations for years to come.



The new town centre will also bring local jobs and workspace, creating 1,230 construction jobs for the next ten years and then approximately 2,000 full-time jobs once the development completed.

It is our aim to keep you, the community, updated of forthcoming activities and progress on site.



The popular shopping and leisure destination, Castle Square, opened in 2020 bringing together local traders together around a public square which regularly hosts community-led events.

Here, you can find out more about the changes happening in the area, as well as information about where to eat, drink and shop locally.
