The Deptford Project


The Deptford Project

South East London
U+I Group PLC

Lichfields commenced this PPI project for Cathedral Group (now part of U+I) as part of the developer selection process by the London Borough of Lewisham.  With planning and heritage to the fore, we obtained the necessary permissions to refurbish the listed carriage ramp accessing Deptford Station and to insert makers’ spaces in the arches beneath – establishing a public market area. The permission also included a new Rogers Stark Harbour residential building in the town centre and converting former offices to a restaurant with affordable housing over.
Confirming Deptford as a good place to live and marking its identity with both new public realm and a major new landmark building was achieved by negotiated consent and has led to a great outcome on site.  Lichfields helped us through the scheme, including the numerous tweaks required after the first permissions.
