Plans in to demolish Lewisham church

A plan has been submitted to demolish a single storey church building in Lewisham and replace with a mixed use design including a replacement church and ten flats.

Coutesy Google. Current site

Amusingly, total gross internal area for the development will be 666m2.

The site is at 65 Boone Street. Of the nine flats for sale, none will be affordable. The application states that this is acceptable as the church building will be available for public use at certain times though final price and hours are not available.

Various views

Bizarrely, the Design and Access statement has no images with most pages lacking any details.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    Ha, ha, that is a lot of building for such a small site. The building is on my route to the shops in Lewisham and I will stop for a closer look next time I am in the area.
