THE APPROVED SCHEME: A NEW PUBLIC SPACE FLANKED BY SHOPS AND CAFES ON BURNT ASH ROAD

June 2017: New opportunities for Leegate Shopping Centre as ASDA withdraws from plans

St. Modwen has announced that its proposals for the regeneration of Leegate Shopping Centre in Lee Green will no longer include an ASDA foodstore. This follows the expiry of a development agreement that had been in place between St. Modwen and ASDA, and the decision of the food retailer not to renew that agreement.

The Leegate Shopping Centre, which is owned by St. Modwen, was built over 50 years ago and has gradually declined as shopping patterns have shifted and the needs of retailers have changed.

St. Modwen proposes to redevelop the centre to create a mix of shops, leisure, employment and other uses including housing.

Throughout this process, St. Modwen has worked with local residents and other stakeholders and the plans have evolved significantly as a result of the feedback received.

  • March 2012: First public exhibition on initial ideas.
  • June 2014: Second public exhibition where the scheme was significantly changed as a result of feedback from March 2012.
  • November 2014: Third public exhibition prior to submission.
  • February 2015: Detailed planning application submitted to the London Borough of Lewisham.
  • May 2016: the London Borough of Lewisham’s Strategic Planning Committee resolves to grant detailed planning permission for the proposals. Scheme subsequently approved by Greater London Authority in 2017.
