Leegate Redevelopment Working Group

Click here to read abstracts from the Mayor of London's draft Supplementary Planning Guidance on Town Centres which we believe should inform any decisions about the redevelopment of Leegate.

Background

St. Modwen, the property group that owns the Leegate shopping centre, has put forward a proposal to put an ASDA store on the site. In response, the Lee Green Assembly convened the Leegate Redevelopment Working Group, chaired by Jim Mallory. Whilst appreciating that an anchor store is probably essential we do not like the proposed redevelopment as it stands and the document above summarises our views oas of July 2014. As well as expressing the Working Group's views on the project, it highlights Council planning policies that we believe support our opposition to the present plans.

As of July2014, no formal planning application has been made.

Clearly something needs to be done to revamp the tired and run-down 1960s shopping centre. But we do not think a large store is the whole answer. It will dominate the centre, swallow up the existing public spaces - the pedestrian passage and square - and generate large amounts of traffic. However, we do accept an "anchor" store is needed but we do not think it needs to be quite so big. We also think it is important to maintain and improve existing links across the centre and with other local amenities. We hope you will take the time to read our document and then click here to let us know your views.
