Ask TVOA: Cllr Kieron Williams, Leader, Southwark Council
Councillor Kieron Williams had big shoes to fill, taking over as leader in September 2020 after a decade with Peter John at the helm. In that time, Southwark has become a byword for growth in London, a borough transformed and delivering more new homes than any other in England.

In May, councillor Williams led Labour to a convincing win, gaining three seats to hold 52 out of 63, against a determined Liberal Democrat assault. He has a clear mandate to deliver a "fairer, greener, safer" Southwark. The pledge is to start building 1,000 more homes local people can afford by 2026, including homes for older people, plus 500 new homes for key workers and a requirement for new social rent homes in private developments. The council will deliver 2,000 green jobs, 2,000 apprenticeships and a new Thriving High Streets Fund.

How will the new administration, and the Southwark Plan 2022 published in February, shape development and growth? What are the plans for a "world class health innovation district"? How will the council's new Land Commission identify sites to be "freed up for public good"? What does "fairer, greener, safer" mean for your work in Southwark?

Tune in to Ask The Voice of Authority at 10am on 12 July to find out. And keep an eye on our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds for your chance to put your own question to Councillor Williams.
