About the A21 Development Framework

The draft A21 Development Framework is a planning guidance document produced by Lewisham Council which sets a vision, objectives and development strategy for the part of the A21 located within Lewisham and sites located alongside and close by to the road.

The A21 runs from Lewisham Town centre through Ladywell, Rushey Green, Catford, Culverly Green, Bellingham, Southend and Downham to the borough boundary with Bromley and includes Molesworth Street, Lewisham High Street, Rushey Green, Bromley Road and Bromley Hill.

The draft A21 Development Framework shows how potential development sites could be redeveloped to provide much needed housing which would include a high proportion of genuinely affordable housing. It also describes how local character, the historic environment, public spaces and movement along and across the A21 should be improved and shows how employment and commercial spaces can be delivered within new developments.

The A21 Development Framework was approved by Mayor and Cabinet 9 March 2022 after being consulted on between 14 October – 12 November 2021. The A21 Development Framework Comments and Responses Log provides responses to the comments received on the draft A21 Development Framework and is available to download below.
