The designation of the Opportunity Area will allow the Mayor, TfL and Southwark Council to take a strategic approach to the future planning of the area which has huge potential for meeting London's residential and employment needs.  Initial work on an Opportunity Area Planning Framework for the area is likely to commence this year when more detail can be provided on the scope of the project.
