The new design for the Sandhurst Road and Sangley Road shopping parades new paving of the same design from the kerb right up to the shop fronts, trees, timed parking bays and narrowed roads to slow the traffic with the aim of making it safer for pedestrians.
Residents, Lewisham Council and the property owners have been working together since last autumn to seek the permissions needed from the owner of each building the permissions needed to improve the shop forecourts, with the aim of completing the improvements by March 2018.
Started and managed by residents this project has been ongoing for a number of years working carefully to ensure as many people as possible are involved to provide a pleasant environment of a variety of shops that residents said they would like.
Residents are also working hard with the Council to improve cleanliness of the parade and continue to prevent shops being turned into residential and attract new shops. We are always looking for new people to get involved, so contact us.
Our Councillors have helped get past some major hurdles which other areas in Lewisham have not been able to. Watch this space for updates.
