Many Londoners are favouring the idea of ‘walk to work homes’ meaning no long tedious commuting, and less money spent on fares. There are several areas including those in South London, which are fast becoming desirable places to live. This is due to their proximity to the capital, lower cost of living and an active scheme of regeneration in several South London locations. 2017 is set to be a pretty ground breaking year for this part of the UK, with pockets of development planned in areas identified as having a lot of potential.

Urban renewal projects abound in London at the moment, ensuring that places like Canary Wharf, Kennington, Brockley and Peckham receive a facelift, and provide much needed convenient dwellings. Central London is infamously expensive and out of the price range of most, but other local areas have been attracting lots of interest.

Transport upgrades are also on the agenda lately with the planned Crossrail and tube extensions coming, and anybody who has read history will note that wherever the railways go, so too do people and communities. Rail extensions will modify travel times and accessibility, like the new Northern Line extension due for 2020, which will convey passengers from Kennington to Battersea.

Areas adjacent to regeneration zones more often than not will benefit from the upgrades also, as in the case of Walworth in the South East of the city. Walworth Rd has managed to retain a modest but busy charm all of it’s own, despite being so close to central London. Michael Caine and Charlie Chalpin have lived in the area, and rejuvenated Elephant & Castle is just up the road. South East London will increasingly offer cutting-edge clubs and caf├ęs, gigs and galleries, rooftop bars and foodie night markets.
