Culverley Green conservation area

Information about the Culverley Green conservation area.

Designated in 1990, this area is mainly an Edwardian residential suburb built around the turn of the last century.

Its grid layout is enhanced by wide tree-lined streets.  At the edge of the conservation area shops (and notably the former cinema dating from 1913) line Bromley Road, the major thoroughfare and once the main coaching route between London and Kent.

Housing is mainly early twentieth century with some late-Victorian villas remaining in Canadian Avenue. Building detail, which gives the area its special interest, includes carved and moulded capitals and window surrounds, terracotta window dressings, sash windows, solid timber doors and stained glass.

Article 4 directions

We have made Article 4 directions to specified streets and areas within the conservation area to encourage the retention of high quality architectural features and ensure that changes are undertaken sympathetically.

To check whether your street is covered by the direction call us on 020 8314 7400 or email planning@lewisham.gov.uk.
