Over the next 10 years we expect several millions of pounds from development earmarked for the community to spend in our area on local projects. Since 2015 Deptford Neighbourhood Action (DNA) has engaged with many local groups and people to find out what matters most to many local people when we consider the future of our neighbourhood.
Working Groups of local volunteers have collected data, reviewed reports, the London Plan and local planning policies to develop the first draft of Deptford Neighbourhood Plan. The current draft work is available here.
We, from DNA and Working Group members, would like to invite you to help us shape and add detail to this first draft of planning policies and priority projects.
Please tell us to what extent you can agree with the initial ideas and add any others.
Deptford Neighbourhood Action Online Survey
We have held public meetings, attended other community group events and meetings, Local Assembly meetings and have had specialist work carried out by consultants to:
- enable local people to affect the design of Convoys Wharf, called a Design Code:
- come up with small social housing in-fill site ideas
- write up a Character and Heritage survey to persuade the Council to list important heritage within the DNA NPlan Area.
- Health & Wellbeing
- Local Economy
- Green and Open Spaces, Heritage
- Additional work on making Deptford a Child Friendly Neighbourhood, including input from Lewisham Council’s Planning team.
