About partnership

The South Bank and Waterloo is a vibrant, bustling and dynamic area which boasts some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, the UK’s busiest railway station, many of London’s most popular attractions and an aspiring community that welcomes new ideas, innovation and creativity. It is a district rich in its offering of arts, hospitality, research and learning, healthcare, business and commerce. It has a diverse residential, employee and student community and covers a wide area – from Lambeth Bridge to Blackfriars Bridge and down to St George’s Circus.

The South Bank and Waterloo Partnership coordinates efforts to transform this area, in particular its public realm, environment and the facilities available, and has been at the forefront of exciting development, positive transformation and meaningful change for London’s cultural heart since 1995. Chaired by the local MPs for Vauxhall, and Bermondsey and Old Southwark, the Partnership is a collaboration between local authorities, statutory agencies and community representatives, businesses, cultural and educational organisations. These groups work together to align their individual plans, secure investment and set a collective framework to ensure that opportunities are managed and delivered for the benefit of all those who live, work, study and visit the area.
