Two open days will be held on 14 and 15 March (3 pm to 8 pm) to kick start a new phase of consultation on the Vauxhall Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) (originally consulted on in 2008).

The open days will include information on:

* Suggested draft principles to guide future development proposals
* Plans for a new linear park (in Wandsworth)
* Information on how new infrastructure, such as schools and community facilities, could be paid for

The material on show will also be available on Lambeth's website. Lambeth will be asking for feedback, which will help them to bring up to date the draft Supplementary Planning Document.
