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."
