New public space for Deptford High Street

The Council has confirmed that their plans to improve Deptford High Street will include "a new public space at its southern end (where the high street meets New Cross Road). A new public square between Deptford High Street and The Deptford Lounge is already nearing completion.

The Council adds:

"This will be the next link in a chain of public spaces stretching from New Cross Gate to Deptford town centre which the Council has been revitalising over recent years in collaboration with the Greater London Authority, Design for London and Transport for London. Most recently, the gyratory system at Kender Triangle in New Cross Gate was returned to two-way traffic and improvements made to adjacent streets. Other projects previously delivered along the route include the makeovers of Fordham Park, Hatcham Gardens and the award-winning Margaret McMillan Park."

How about getting rid of the one way system around the Marquis of Granby island?

Shame they haven't been able to finish off the space outside the Waldron Health Centre fully - apparently the scruffy area with the boarding doesn't belong to the council so they can't develop it. Anyone know more about this?

Gosh Deptford is getting so much attention by Lewisham Council. Its endless announcements for new regeneration schemes down in SE8.

Poor Brockley on the other hand celebrates when we get a pot hole filled...

@anon by no stretch of the imagination is that in Deptford, also those roads come under TFL's jurisdiction

I am sure the gentlemans street drinking club will raise a can of premium strength lager to toast Lewishams continue support for their society.

Perhaps that very expensive bus could steet drinkers scheme could be parked at this location long term.

@Credit crunch chick - the issue of those hoardings was raised at the New Cross Assembly last week.

There was a Waldron Centre worker in attendance who shared the frustration but had no idea who was responsible for getting rid of them.

Cllr Maslin was also present. He and the assembly team pledged to 'look into it'...
