Faircharm Workspace approved

The proposed redevelopment of Faircharm trading estate in Deptford as the Faircharm Creative Quarter was approved by Lewisham Council on May 2nd.

The plans submitted by developers Workspace will open up the site and lead to an increase in employment, but workshop space will be lost, forcing some of the incumbents to relocate, meaning some high quality small businesses will be lost to the area.

148 new homes will also be built as part of the redevelopment.
