Sadly on 27 September 2017 Lewisham Planning Committee voted in favour of the Reginald Road Development , condemning the future of the garden and 16 homes at Reginald House.
The committee hearing was well attended by local residents and garden campaigners but sadly our efforts fell short of convincing our local councillors to rethink this development for the benefit of Deptford.
The council voted 4 in favour 2 against the approval of the scheme;
FOR APPROVAL: Councillors De Ryk (Chair), Bonavia, Onokosi and Reid
AGAINST: Councillors Clarke and Coughlin

What have we done since
We’ve sent a letter to Sadiq Khan asking him to review Lewisham Council’s decision, this was sent on 29 September. We must also thank Len Duvall for his continued support for the campaign from the GLA Assembly.
We’ve also appeared on LondonLive making our case visible on October 03 >> https://youtu.be/NGofuzaVB7Y
This letter has been supported via a Lewisham Deptford Labour Party General Committee - who passed a motion on the 12th October to review this decision.
