I was at the Blackheath/Lewisham/Lee Green forum on Monday. We were given an insight into redevelopment plans for the area immediately in front of Lewisham Station. At the moment it is a very busy and ugly roundabout that cuts Lewisham off from the station.
Under the new plans it could become a pleasant, pedestrian focussed area with a park, river and shopping area. A huge improvement.
The plans also include four or five tower blocks of up to twenty stories. These will be higher than the Citibank building that currently dominates the skyline of northern Lewisham.
The population density of this area will be increased dramatically and the knock on effects could be felt for decades to come.
I will support this development, but only if the residential element is kept in proportion to the infrastructure of the area.
