Lewisham Gateway: Getting built. Probably.

A quick follow up on recent speculation that Lewisham Gateway would be / has been scrapped.

The line from Cllr Alexander, who's responsible for regeneration in Lewisham is that:

"I know that council officers have been in regular contact with the Gateway developers, Muse and Taylor Wimpey. We have been reassured that they are fully committed to the scheme."

Since the property market downturn, a common tactic by developers has been to continue with their plans but adopt go-slow construction schedules, rather than pull them altogether and risk their development pipelines. It seems reasonable to assume that this is what will happen to the Gateway.
