‘Meanwhile’ Property Opportunities in Catford


The Opportunity – The London Borough of Lewisham is pleased to invite proposals for the meanwhile use of three properties, outlined below.
These spaces are located within Catford town centre and offer wide possibilities for diverse, creative, commercial, residential and mixed-used occupation. The hope for these developments is to inject a new burst of life and creativity into some of Catfords derelict and unused spaces, helping to bring new talent, opportunities and resources to the local area. Developments will help to catalyse the re-invigoration of Catford town centre, and meet Lewisham Council priorities for local regeneration, growth and investment.

The three spaces are:
1) Thomas Lane Depot, Catford, SE6 4RZ
2) 17-18 Catford Broadway, SE6 4SN
3) The Brookdale Club, Brookdale Road, Catford, SE6 4JY

About Author

Hi. I am the coordinator for the Catford South Local Assembly and a friend of all things Catford :-)


  1. So demolition was supposed to start over a year ago, delayed due to the road review, and now not happening before 2021…. Will this be Lewisham regen all over again?

  2. So we are stuck with Milford Towers “until at least 2021” ( LB Lewisham).

    Was that made clear at the last assembly meeting?

      Hiya Jeff
      I had a look at the slides presented at the assembly meeting and the timescales were reported as follows:
      – Road decision – January 2017
      – Public consultation on refreshed vision early 2017
      – Urban Framework by July 2017
      – Masterplan completed by Summer 2018
      – Site specific development briefs prepared in parallel
      – Works not likely to start until 2020 including any funding for TfL roads

      We are hoping to have a lot of input into this as the process rolls on and will always keep you as informed as possible at assembly meetings and here.
      Thanks for the question
