NETWORK RAIL PLANS TO TRANSFORM CAMBERWELL ARCHES INTO CAFES
Plans to transform industrialised railway arches into new spaces for cafes and bars have been drawn up by Network Rail.
A planning application submitted to Southwark Council last month shows the six archways could soon offer Camberwell a new hot spot for evening entertainment.
The six archways in 344-349 Camberwell Station Road “currently in a poor state of repair”, according to Network Rail. But each contain about 120 square metres, with a six smaller one providing 50 sq m of space.
Public consultation on the plans ends today (Thursday), and will soon be decided be either approved or sent back to redesigning by Southwark Council’s planning committee.
