Our New Cross is a forum for everybody who lives, works & studies in New Cross. We aim to protect & improve our area through projects, events & by developing a Neighbourhood Plan.
The Civic Market is born out of the need to create inspiring engagement and interaction within our community. It is a flexible & adaptable stage to bring new life to currently underused existing open spaces along the A2. It will host a wide variety of events, from community & environmental research to educational workshops supporting the needs of existing & new organizations.
An important part of the Civic Market will be to address one of the biggest problems in New Cross: the A2. Previous research has highlighted the main road as one of the greatest problems in the area: it divides the community, erases the identity of the High Street & creates high levels of noise & pollution. In tandem with the events, we will introduce temporary creative solutions to re-balance the use & character of the A2.
