Revitalising The Blue


A community campaign led by Blue Bermondsey BID was successful in securing £2m capital funding from the Mayor of London’s LEAP Good Growth Fund, supported by Southwark Council.

Locally based Turner prize winning collective, Assemble + Hayatsu Architects were chosen to undertake the design work with their impressive tender proposal entitled ‘Made In Bermondsey’. The initial designs concepts were refined and further developed in collaboration with the local community through intense consultation during 2019/ 2020.

The regeneration of Market Place formed the centre piece of the improvements to create a first class flexible public space at the heart of the Blue, Bermondsey’s historic town centre.  Warwick Landscaping were appointed to undertake the building works works, which began in January 2021 and completed in July 2021.

Ready For The Future

The Made in Bermondsey project has now equipped the Blue with a unique and inviting community hub and will help to boost the the area as a whole in the coming years.

‘Gawd blimey’ we even got a mention in The Guardian. and we were visited by a delegation from Chicago City Hall to learn more about our little corner of London and this exemplar community led project.
