What's happening?


Lewisham Council is leading work to transform our town centre. The south circular will be re-routed to free up more space for pedestrians and cyclists. Catford Shopping Centre will be redeveloped, providing new retail space and new homes will be built across the town centre. Pedestrian-friendly areas, open spaces and new community facilities will also be created.

The aim is to improve the quality of life in Catford Town Centre and meet the demands of a constantly growing and changing area. This means more homes in safe and welcoming places, with access to jobs and training.

It’s a long-term plan, but things are already changing. Film set builders, Supersets have moved into the derelict depot on Thomas Lane. Lewisham Council is also in negotiation with some exciting tenants for other vacant spaces including the Brookdale Club and units in the Catford Shopping Centre and on Rushey Green.
