A21 Development Framework

We are currently producing a Development Framework for the A21 corridor.

Consultation on the draft A21 Development Framework

Lewisham Council has produced the draft A21 Development Framework which is currently being consulted on.

The consultation on the draft A21 Development Framework is running from Thursday 14 October–Friday 12 November. 

Please find a link below to download the draft A21 Development Framework.

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 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 Baseline Study

The Council has also produced an A21 Development Framework Baseline Study which describes the area today and provides an evidence base for the proposals in the draft A21 Development Framework. 

The A21 Development Framework Baseline Appraisal is available to download below, however please note that the A21 Development Framework Baseline Study is NOT being consulted on and comments should not be provided on this document.
