About Southwark Council
South of the River Thames, Southwark stretches from the riverside to Dulwich. It captures a number of well-known areas including Bankside and London Bridge, Peckham and the Elephant & Castle, Bermondsey and Rotherhite.
Described as London's most historic borough, it is London’s fastest growing area for tourism. Home to world famous attractions such as the Tate Modern, Borough Market and Tower Bridge, we are also an area of major regeneration.
Our programme is not only changing the face of the borough, it is also changing how people live, work and socialise within it.
Our central location provides excellent transport links. We are served by three London underground lines and a major rail terminal at London Bridge. There is an extensive bus network and easy access to major roads.
We have a population of over 250,000, and are the largest Housing landlord in London. 63 Councillors lead Southwark, which is organised into eight multi-service departments.
The Council increasingly works in partnership with other public sector organisations and the private sector. We are committed to excellence and aim to provide services effectively and efficiently to the local community and all of our visitors.
