Lewisham Gateway first phase plans unveiled
The highly anticipated first phase plans for the multi-million pound regeneration of a key site in Lewisham have been unveiled.
The proposal when implemented will see the first phase of the Lewisham Gateway regeneration development delivered and include around 200 new homes, retail and café uses in two attractive buildings located near to the DLR and railways stations.
The proposal will include a new landscaped park to be known as Confluence Place, located at the point where the Ravensbourne and Quaggy rivers meet.
In 2009, Lewisham Borough Council granted outline planning approval for the wider Lewisham Gateway scheme to enable the delivery of the comprehensive redevelopment of an area of land between the Lewisham stations and Lewisham town centre.
The developer, Lewisham Gateway Developments, is now consulting on the detailed designs for the first phase of this exciting development.
Doug Finlay, for Lewisham Gateway Developments, said, “This proposal is the next step toward delivering Lewisham Gateway – a place-making regeneration scheme that will deliver new jobs, new homes, commercial uses and Confluence Place.”
The local community were invited to a public exhibition on Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December to view the plans, meet with members of the project team and comment on the proposal for this first phase. The event was well attended, attracting almost 300 people across the two days.
