Heritage & Culture

Voice 4 Deptford is campaigning for:

A development which honours the unique culture and heritage of Deptford

a) enhance rather than obliterate the site’s unique history

b) past and present cultures of Deptford should be a primary design tool for     architects/developer 

c) interests, aspirations and heritage of the people of Deptford, especially its young people, to be formally referenced in the development’s build out.

Heritage projects and their place on the Convoys Wharf development

Deptford’s heritage has frequently been ignored but the Convoy’s Wharf development raises the interesting opportunity of creating a ‘heritage vicinity’ that includes the sites of the Lenox and the Sayes Court Garden projects as assets of World historical importance linked and surrounded by a buffer zone along the lines recommended by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee.
