Convoys Wharf is going through a number of consultations on their many different plots. It is a huge development of 16.6ha delivering 3,500 homes - so it dominates the conversation - but we shouldn't forget the many other small developments. Nor should we forget New Bermondsey (3,500 homes) and Canada Water (3,500 homes).
Tens of thousands of new residents will have a HUGE impact on resources, amenities, infrastructure, capacity and, of course, green spaces.
We will continue to ask for PLOT 21 on Convoys Wharf to be turned over to green space, to extend Upper Pepys Park, to create a new park for Lewisham.

Simply put, Plot 21 is outside of the initial outline planning permission that Boris Johnson approved when he was Mayor of London.
In order for this area to be developed (in any way) further planning consent is needed and the legal provisions of land use changed.
This is an opportunity for Lewisham Council to lead on climate change and create a new park for all.
