Lewisham Council is consulting on the future of Catford Town Centre. Don’t forget to have your say.

The Council is updating its planning strategy for Catford Town Centre. This is called the Catford Town Centre Local Plan or the Catford Plan for short. The Catford Plan will guide where and how development should take place for the period to 2026, reflecting community and Council expectations, and once agreed and adopted it will be used to assess and determine relevant planning applications.

The Council is now consulting on a ‘further options’ document for the Catford Plan, which details the emerging vision, plans and policies for Catford’s future. It has been prepared by the Council using extensive local research and:

  • outlines key planning and design issues that will need to be resolved,
  • updates information presented for public consultation in 2005 and 2007, and
  • shows a recommended approach the Council could adopt as part of the final Catford Plan together with the reasonable alternatives that are being considered.

The preparation of the further options document was subject to a Sustainability Appraisal and this is also available for consultation and comment.

The purpose of this consultation stage is to ensure that anyone who is interested, particularly the local business and resident communities and affected land owners, has the opportunity to comment on what options should be taken forward, and any alternative option being considered. All are open for comment and you are invited to suggest other options if you feel there is another way. The Council wants to hear from local people and believes that local knowledge and opinions result in a better plan.

The consultation is ends on Thursday 4 April 2013.
