Small Sites Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) Consultation

Closed 7 Jun 2021

Opened 19 Mar 2021

Overview

Lewisham, like all boroughs, is dealing with a housing crisis and a climate emergency. To help tackle these issues, we’ve completed a draft small sites design guidance document, encouraging the delivery of more high-quality, sustainable homes across the borough.

In September 2020 we appointed Architects Ash Sakula and RCKa to work on a draft of the Small Sites Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) . They completed an initial consultation process with local agents, architects and developers and worked with LBL officers and councillors to produce the first draft of this design guidance.

We’d like to hear your views on the draft Small Sites SPD (click image below to view)

We are holding a Virtual Town Hall event on the 25th May 2021 at 17:30.

This event will be a chance for you to hear directly from Lewisham officers and a chance to ask questions about the guidance prior to completing the online consultation
