Lewisham Council launches consultation on Small Sites Design Guidance to encourage more high-quality, sustainable homes in the borough
The London Borough of Lewisham, like all boroughs, is dealing with a housing crisis and a climate emergency. This new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) gives proactive, detailed design guidance for developments of small sites in the borough.
The GLA's recently adopted London Plan (2021), has given Lewisham an annual target of 1,667 new homes of which 379 per annum are forecast from small sites. This requires nearly 4,000 homes to be delivered through small sites in the next 10 years. This SPD will enable the delivery of high quality, sustainable new homes for the borough.
The council hopes to hear from; residents as landowners and community groups; local developers, agents, architects and contractors; self-build groups and housing associations aiming to provide more affordable housing in the borough; local area societies, character and conservation groups; and anyone else interested in this guidance. As part of the wider consultation, a selection of virtual consultation events are planned to take place in May, with dates to be confirmed. Go to:
To view the draft SPD and associated documents go to the council's website and give any feedback or comment via Citizen Space (simply google Lewisham Citizen Space Small Sites SPD). Further consultation will take place on Commonplace, from 7th May until the close of consultation on the 1st June 2021.
