https://www.v4dcomments.orgOBJECTIONS TO PLOT O8 AND PLOT 22

Voice 4 Deptford has a number of major objections to the developers’ detailed planning applications to Lewisham. Plot 08 is about a block of private 1 and 2 bedroom flats with a 14 storey corner which you would see looking from Deptford High Street to towards the river.

It is our view that Plot 08 should be rejected because:

  • There is no social rented or truly affordable housing in it;
  • There is insufficient green space around it with an all private podium garden in the middle;
  • Its design isn’t child friendly – shows little understanding of the real needs of children and young people;
  • There has been no cultural input from the local community as to how the building should look or complement the surrounding buildings or the heritage of the people of Deptford.

These objections to Plot 08 are laid out in the following documents.

Plot 22 is about the river jetty and a proposal for a temporary private marketing suite instead of a public jetty park.

It is Voice 4 Deptford’s view that Plot 22 should be rejected because:

  • There has been no consultation on it, contrary to planning law;
  • The original river park has gone – the developers want to put a 2/3 storey building on it in place of the river park they promised originally (where are our loos, swings, benches?);
  • It will add traffic – a new “temporary” entrance is proposed, breaking through the wall directly opposite Twinkle park, which will bring additional traffic down an already very narrow Watergate Street;
  • There has been no cultural input from the local community as to how the jetty should look or complement the surrounding buildings and the heritage of the people of Deptford.

These objections to Plot 22 are laid out, in the following documents.
