[ Southwark regeneration drama ]

Sarah MacGregor writes:

I'm currently developing a drama set against the
backdrop of contemporary Southwark and I'd really love
to hear any readers' opinions on the development of the
area. How are the developments improving the quality of
life of the local residents? 

Any responses gratefully received and of course will be
credited on the final script.  If anyone would like to
be interviewed let me know and I'll come along and tape
the interviews.
