Convoy’s Wharf plans on display

News Shopper’s Dan Keel reports:

A PUBLIC exhibition is to be held on proposals for a new development featuring 3,500 new houses and 4,600 sq m of restaurants and bars.

Residents are invited to the Convoys Wharf site in New Kings Street, Deptford, from 10am to 4pm on December 5, with a further meeting taking place on December 8 from 2pm to 8pm.

This is about a development in Deptford but the size of it makes it very relevant to all Lewisham.
For those that don’t know about it this area comprizes almost all of Lewisham’s riverfront and was for many years used as News International’s paper depo, a planning application for development was approved but not acted upon until it expired. It is now owned by the Hutchison Whampoa group.
The initial plan was designed by Richard Rogers and what will be presented is expected to be largely based on that initial plan.
Ironically part of this dilapidated site was once Sayes Court, the birthplace of the National Trust.
