It may seem a blink of an eye since the last multi-million pound project to upgrade Deptford High Street but another is now being planned.
Lewisham Council have commenced the process of consultation and seeking feedback.
Back in April this year a Lewisham Council meeting featured a report which raised the prospect of pedestrianisation along part of the street. The report stated:
“Urban design improvements to Deptford High Street between the junctions of Edward Street and the A2.
“Deptford Broadway is a heavily used street with shops which will improve from pedestrianisation”.
Hundreds of homes are set to be occupied within a short distance of the High Street starting later this year. The main one is at the former Tidemill school site now branded as Frankham Walk, which is visible at the 37 second mark in this video.
Slightly further away is 1 Creekside which is currently seeing people move in.
In the past year a number of plans have also been submitted for housing along Creekside including 231 student rooms at the APT studios site.
It’s around a decade since the last Deptford Hogh Street upgrade was completed at a cost of £2.23 million.
That project saw new paving and surfaces installed along the length of the High Street. The anchor at the junction with New Cross Road and Deptford Broadway went AWOL for awhile too before returning.
