Happy New Year
Deptford Is... would like to wish a Happy New Year to all Deptford residents and businesses, and our supporters far and wide.
We begin 2013 with a video from the Convoys Wharf website, which includes clear and confident references to Build The Lenox and Sayes Court Garden, two projects promoted by Deptford Is... that appear to be very much accepted in the developer's plans for the future.
There is also positive acknowledgement that any new masterplan must begin with the historical features of the site, in both ground plan and tone – a major success for the Deptford Is... campaign.
The video also suggests that Deptford people have made a significant input into the process. We'd like to thank all those who have contributed to this success so far, and who join us in our anticipation to see the next stage plans.
In the near future we will present further news on the progress of both Build The Lenox and Sayes Court Garden and the involvement of Deptford people in these projects.
Last but not least, 2013 is a special year for Deptford's Royal Dockyard. It is 500 years since Henry VIII established the site with a Royal Charter. We are making plans to celebrate this landmark anniversary, so watch this space!
NB: The themes and issues touched on in the video above are expanded in a further four videos to be found here.
