Other parts will be finished off in the studio

Sayes Court : The Future of the Garden
Sayes Court : The Future of the Garden joined Lewisham Hive1 month ago

We’ve got big plans here at Sayes Court and we’d love you to get involved! A park once three times the size, Sayes Court will soon reclaim this lost land and leap the fence into the Convoys Wharf development. Before that happens, Sayes Court Park will be the community-led testing ground where we imagine and plan what that future will look like. Together we'll transform this neglected park into a source of pride for Deptford and a destination for London. This legacy is an invitation to test, grow and transform a part of the city, making better places to live. Through collaborative workshops, events and a reinstated pavilion, Sayes Court will become a centre for the community once again. <b>We have in principle support from Lewisham Council for our project but still need to secure formal permission that we can deliver our project in Sayes Court Park. In the unlikely event we are not able to secure permission, no money will be taken from backers.</b>
