The Battle for Leegate’s future- Planning Deadline Looms

Thank you to everyone who has completed the A Better Lee Green survey, which had almost 500 responses. We will send this to the council at the end of next week. However, please do not confuse our survey with Lewisham’s consultation.

So far fewer than 50 people have submitted comments to Lewisham’s planning department about Leegate.

It is really important that everyone sends in their views before the deadline of 15th April. This is essential because unlike our survey, these comments become part of the planning application and so carry huge weight. The number of people who reply to Lewisham’s consultation will be seen to represent the strength of local feeling.


Few replies won’t help to get what you want and will undermine our survey, which so many of you took the trouble to complete. Please take the time now to tell Lewisham whether you want St Modwen’s proposals for Leegate or not and why/why not, by emailing

For your submission to be valid you must include:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • The application number DC/14/90032

Further details of the proposals can be seen at

After 15th April Lewisham’s consultation will be closed and all further opportunities to influence the development of Leegate will be closed to the community. This really is your very last chance!

Thank you and best wishes,

A Better Lee Green
