WORKING WITH LOCAL SCHOOLS AT ELEPHANT PARK
The development of Elephant Park will span 15 years in total, so a local young person who started school when the project began could still be in education by the time we have finished. We want to make sure that young people are fully engaged with our plans and are able to benefit from them as much as possible. We are therefore working with a number of different primary and secondary schools, as well higher education institutions, on various different education projects.
If you work for a local education institution and would like to talk to us about working together, please email [email protected] with the subject “Education project”.
During our time in Elephant & Castle, the Lendlease team have supported numerous local projects, from refurbishments and redecorations of community facilities to aspiration building and careers advice at local schools. If you are local group, looking for the kind of expertise a company like Lendlease can provide then please email [email protected]
Making Your Mark
Since 2014, we have been working with the local community to come up with names for all the new streets, buildings and open spaces across Elephant Park. So far names have included O’Callaghan Way, named after local hero Lee O’Callaghan who tragically died in military service in Iraq in 2004. If you have any suggestions for new street or building names please email [email protected] with the subject “Building name suggestion”.
