Whilst scanning Lewisham Planning for details of the Convoys Wharf planning application (see earlier post), we came across another couple of local applications.
The long awaited application from Cathedral plc for the development attached to the new Deptford station otherwise known as The Deptford Project...featuring a rather massive Richard Rogers building full of luxury flats, accompanied by alterations to the existing St Paul's House to provide low-cost housing...plus a piazza etc...View the application here. The Planning Statement is here (78 pages).
If you got involved in any way with the "highly visual and participative consultation" process (a rather random sticky dot exercise), you might want to have a butchers at the The Statement of Community Views, which appears to show a majority in favour, although the process was so unscientific it would surely be impossible to say exactly what the community is in favour of. Apparently we want more tall buildings and luxury flats.
For more detail on the plans see The Deptford Dame.
An application for a change of use at 37 Deptford High St to a Retail Jewellers and Pawnbrokers, together with the installation of a new shop front (with an additional application for an illuminated sign). See here. As yet no documents to look at or deadline for objections. We'll be keeping an eye on this...Can anyone remember what was here before?
