Plans to construct 220 homes in Deptford at Sun Creek are back before Lewisham’s Planning Committee next week after a previous error rendered approval void.
The long-term occupier of the site on Deptford Creek, Jones, has already left. In May they vacated and are now based in Barking.
Bellway Homes and Peabody are behind the proposal which will sit beside a rather dull Bellway box.
Approval is very likely but embarrassing for Lewisham. Plans were approved on 13th July 2022. A report states it “is being brought back to Committee following an administrative clerking error at the July 13th meeting.”
A major benefit will be opening up a creekside path, though hopefully it’s more successful than another built on the Greenwich side of the creek and has never opened to the public:
Space beside the railway arches is also set to be opened up for public use.
The site joins an ever growing number of plots recently developed or set to be built upon.
The other end of Creekside sees this development nearing completion:
There are plans for housing to the rear of the Bird’s Nest pub opposite:
Saxon Wharf on the Greenwich side of the Creek has been approved:
Ravernsbourne Wharf was approved in 2020:
These plans follow a number of completed developments changing the face of the area including Union Wharf:
Sun Wharf would be largely car-free, with the exception of parking spaces for disabled residents.
The area is well located with two railway stations within a short walk (Greenwich and Deptford) plus DLR stations at Cutty Sark, Greenwich and Deptford bridge plus the new cycleway 4 which will eventually run to central London.
