Deptford Project master plan approved

We're grateful to Gema on the Deptford forum, for alerting us that BD Online is reporting the Deptford Project has been given the go-ahead.

The masterplan involves redeveloping the area between the Deptford Project cafe and Deptford Station, behind the high street and parallel with the railway arches. An eight story residential block and new market and new retail and workshop space are among the key features. The Victorian carriage ramp will be restored.

This is a big deal for Deptford and, while the neon pink styling of the main residential building will offend some (not BC, we should say), the overall effect of this project should be incredibly positive, complementing the exciting stuff that Deptford already offers.

BD says:

Cathedral and United House, which were first chosen to develop the scheme in 2006, are hoping to be on site later this year with completion pencilled in for the middle of 2014.
