Deptford Neighbourhood Action Draft Neighbourhood Plan Consultation and Online Survey

Welcome to the Draft Deptford Neighbourhood Action (DNA) Neighbourhood Forum Plan and online survey.

DNA became a Designated Neighbourhood Forum in February 2016, and since that time we have been seeking your views on what should be included within the Deptford Neighbourhood Plan (NPlan).

Along the way we have been taking your comments, ideas, and opinions into helping to creating it.

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.

Following from our detailed work with five issue based groups:

  1. Housing
  2. Health & Wellbeing
  3. Local Economy
  4. Green and Open Spaces, Heritage
  5. Additional work on making Deptford a Child Friendly Neighbourhood, including input from Lewisham Council’s Planning team.

We have now published the Pre-Submission DNA Neighbourhood Plan.

Once again, we are seeking your views, at this opportunity to influence the Plan. We need your support for the draft policies and project ideas to ensure that as this will be a Neighbourhood Plan that will run for 15 years, that it contains the best policies that there can be for the benefit of Deptford.

We would be very grateful if you could let us have your views by reviewing the Draft Neighbourhood Plan. The full version of the plan can be found here, and the summary booklet (for ease of reference), can be found here, and then complete this short online survey. Click here to go to the survey.

The full DNA Draft Neighbourhood Plan can be reviewed until Wednesday 18th December 2019 at Pepys Resource Centre, Old Library, Deptford Strand, London, SE8 3BA between the hours of 10.00 am – 3.00 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.
