The first 3Fox project back in 2004 and still going strong, Southwark magazine is published twice each year. From the first issues setting out the council's ambitions, to recent editions demonstrating the delivery of a host of high value, high impact schemes, Southwark magazine continues to tell the story of London's most dynamic borough.

That story is supported by a website updated weekly and a quarterly email newsletter sent to all subscribers. Occasional networking events enable Southwark's development community to meet and exchange views and information.

Background to Southwark magazine

Southwark magazine has two key objectives: to show how much is being delivered (from a single CGI of the imagined Shard in the first issue, to multiple photographs of the nearly-completed Shard in the most recent edition), and to show that Peckham and Bankside, Dulwich and Bermondsey are all in the same borough (and development profit can be made in them all).


"It's important for us to be involved in a magazine that promotes all the different things going on within the borough and helps bring excitement and interest into it.

We sponsor the magazine because we think it's an excellent way of setting out what's happening in the borough. We find them useful to understand what's going on; it's the kind of thing that's passed around the office and given weight and credence.

We think it's important that we should be in there, shouting about all the things L&Q is doing in the borough."

Adam Simpson
Assistant director for regeneration and equity

"It's about improving the lives of people who live, work and travel through Southwark. Here we are in the 10th year of producing the magazine and we're not stopping there. The next one will be produced in January and the one after that will be here in July [2014]."

Eleanor Kelly
Chief executive
Southwark Council

"Southwark magazine is important to us in order to get ourselves out there. We're very excited about the opportunities the borough has to offer."

Sophie Hoskin
Land and planning manager
Telford Homes

"The magazine really does capture what's going on in the borough in terms of regeneration and development. From our public squares and parks through to the Aylesbury Estate, Camberwell and Nunhead, it's all in the magazine and I want to thank the people who have produced it."

Councillor Peter John
Southwark Council
