Lewisham Council is asking for our opinions regarding the location of a new travellers site. The choice is between South Catford and New Cross. You can read the details and respond via a short survey using the links below.
There is nothing wrong with providing a travellers site, it is a legal requirement. There are clear differences between the sites. The proposed Catford site does not seem to be as suitable a site as the New Cross site as it has several potential issues.
The New Cross site has easy access from main roads, is away from housing and water courses where pollution might be an issue. The site is currently vacant.
The Catford site is next to the Ravensbourne River south of Catford with a potential for pollution as well as being next to housing. A local business will have to be relocated.
Can you please make your views known by completing the above consultation forms whilst bearing the above points in mind? The deadline for your views is 30th November 2016.
