The SoWN website is hosting information related to the 2021 public consultation about the future design of Emma Cons Gardens, opposite the Old Vic theatre.


During 2021 a community-led public consultation will take place to develop a future design for Emma Cons Gardens.  The consultation will be funded by Bourne Capital, who are currently developing proposals for the adjoining Waterloo Estate site, facing the Gardens.
