Achilles Street Stop And Listen Campaign
At a ‘consultation’ on the 21st May 2016- Lewisham Council revealed its plans to redevelop the Achilles Street area. The Council is proposing to demolish all of the homes and local businesses in the Achilles Street area in order to build high rise, high density housing in partnership with private contractors/ developers. Although Lewisham have recently said they plan to do the ‘redevelopment’ themselves they have yet to provide detail of contractor partnerships and viability detail.
The Achilles Street area – is a low density housing estate, which runs along either side of Achilles Street between Clifton Rise and Pagnell Street . It also includes the flats, maisonettes and businesses along the New Cross Road between Clifton Rise and Pagnell Street (excluding the Venue and the old bank building).
* Up until the 31 July 2019, the east side of Clifton Rise were part of the ‘redevelopment’ proposals.
