Council unveils Deptford High Street improvement plans

The Deptford Dame reports that Lewisham Council is to exhibit its ideas to redevelop Deptford High Street, after it was awarded £1.5m from the Mayor's Outer London Fund to make improvements. The exhibition will take place at The Deptford Lounge from March 15th-April 1st. The Dame hopes that a rogue paving slab with a habit of squirting fishy water at pedestrians will be dealt with and says:

The council is looking at improving the physical condition and layout of the High Street so that it is better equipped to accommodate traffic four days a week and a the market three days a week. Other ideas being worked on include looking at ways to improve parking across the whole of the town centre which take into account current and future user needs and appropriate regulation and creating a new public space at the southern end of the High Street which could host events or seasonal markets.
