Catford Broadway Market
The Catford town centre local plan (CTCLP) was withdrawn from Examination on Thursday 19 December 2013.

Following publication of the independent ‘Roads Task Force’ (RTF) report in July 2013, the Mayor of London requested that Transport for London (TfL) and the London boroughs look again at long established road improvement proposals and how they might be implemented.

The main reason for withdrawal was that Transport for London (TfL), in consultation with the Council wanted to look again at their long standing A205 road improvement proposals. These road proposals involved relocating the A205 South Circular to the rear of Laurence House and the Catford town centre local plan no longer supported this approach.

The Council say they remain committed to the comprehensive regeneration of Catford. The Catford programme team have undertaken a market exploration exercise to engage with developers, architects and consultants to gather ideas and information about the best way to bring the development opportunities within Catford to the market and to ensure that the Council and community see their aspirations for the town centre met.

Work on several key schemes is still on-going:

  • The refurbishment of Catford Broadway is well underway and on target for completion in spring 2014
  • Planning permission has been granted for the redevelopment of the former Catford Greyhound Stadium, and work on-site is expected to commence within the coming months
  • The decant of Milford Towers is progressing well, with around two thirds of secure tenants now moved out.

See the Council’s Planning section for more information and frequently asked questions.

Do you know if th improvements of the shopping centre, under Catford Regeneration Partnership Ltd are tied in to the Catford Plan? (I.e will these be delayed?) Hope not……

Thanks for posting this. Do you think it is likely that TFL might actually move the road to behind Laurence House soon, if they do decide it’s still a realistic option? The letter they sent out mentioned a pot of cash they’d found.

Personally I think it’s a very sensible idea to move it behind Laurence House and across the southern side of Plassy Island (which was kept undeveloped for this very reason). It would also be great for Catford.

TFL – please do it soon. And give us DLR 🙂 thanks.

Well, well, well. It’s only taken since 1972 for the authority above Lewisham to respond to the Council’s request to move the South Circular across that site. Lawrence House was only built there because yet again the Council had been turned down by Department of Transport and GLC and its successor bodies. As Lewisham has never had control over the action that could be taken over the road, we’ve always been stymied. There are plenty of plans for what could be done if the South Circular is moved that can be brought out and dusted down for reconsideration. Is there a lesson here? Give up on what you really want to do; accept what the senior authority have been telling you for years and things suddenly change because you decided… Read more »

Gosh, I just moved in Milford Towers, hope they don’t forget about us when they break it down LOL
It looks more like people moving in than moving out from my ‘inside’ vision…. I started to like it… Well, it’s good to keep an eye on your website, I learn more about my own building 🙁
