Plot 15 landscaping RMA – have your say

Convoys Property Group have made a Reserved Matters Application to Lewisham Council for the landscaping around Plot 15. You can read the full application here.

The deadline for comments and objections has been put back to to 2nd July 2021. So you still have time to give your views to the planners.

Send your comments to: David Robinson, London Borough of Lewisham, 4th Floor, Laurence House, London, SE6 4RU. Email: david.Robinson@lewisham.gov.uk.  

From the developers website:

Plot 15 is located where two distinct character areas converge. The Eastern Gateway and The Evelyn Quarter bring both river and parkland influences to the site, which are carefully woven together to create a cohesive and playful environment for families.

The existing London Plane trees along the site  boundary will be retained and protected. New strategic tree planting will enhance and filter views across the site and strengthen its visual connection to the wider landscape.

The place making strategy uses four approaches to incorporate heritage: Reuse, Display, Inspire and Remember.

The design of Plot 15 takes inspiration from John Evelyn’s approach to experimental planting, focusing on year-round interest, adaptation to a changing climate, and improvements to air quality and well-being.

The Residents’ Garden  has been designed as a verdant landscape relating to the rich garden heritage of this part of the site. A strong contrast in materiality and planting character has been introduced where the historic Dockyard wall once passed through the site.

This is your opportunity to make you views known.
