About the Project

What is happening?

Thomas’ Lane Yard will be one of the first projects to come forward as part of the Council’s vision for the future of Catford, which has been informed by over 3,000 comments from local residents.

Alongside plans for a new pub in the refurbished Catford Constitutional building, a new pedestrianised space will be created with flexible workspace for local businesses, small shops and food and drink kiosks. Up to 100 new homes will be built, of which 50% will be affordable with 40 homes for social rent for those on the Council’s housing register.

A new largely car-free public space will be planted with new trees and greenery with a children’s play area. Supporting the Council’s ambition for Catford to be the greenest town centre in London, this will help encourage local people to walk or cycle local journeys. Sustainable urban drainage, planting with large tree canopies, green roofs and low carbon heating systems in the new buildings will help improve air quality and reduce the environmental impact of the surrounding buildings.

The site covers the area currently used as Thomas’ Lane car park, to the rear of Catford Broadway accessed from Thomas Lane and incorporates the Thomas’ Lane depot, currently occupied under a meanwhile-use arrangement by Supersets.

A planning application for Thomas’ Lane Yard will be submitted later this year.

The project was selected for funding as part of the Mayor of London’s £70 million regeneration programme to support growth and community development in London.

Take a look around

There is a lot to see...

In January 2021 Lewisham Council appointed Turner Works, together with Hayatsu Architects and Surman Weston as designers for this new project backed by the Greater London Authority. The design team submitted a planning application for the refurbishment of the historic pub in June and will submit a planning application for Thomas’ Lane Yard later this year.

The project

An historic building in Catford will be brought back into community use as part of Lewisham Council’s exciting new plans for a revitalised town centre.

Formerly known as the Catford Constitutional Club, the building will be refurbished and reopened as a public house, with additional spaces for local culture & creativity. 

The locally listed Victorian building was forced to close in August 2019 due to structural and safety issues. The adjoining Georgian house, the oldest building in Catford, the only existing part of the original farm dating from 1736, is derelict and has not been in use for over 20 years.

Alongside plans for a new pub in the refurbished Catford Constitutional building, a new pedestrianised space will be created with flexible workspace for local businesses, small shops and food and drink kiosks. Up to 100 new homes will be built, of which 50% will be affordable with 40 homes for social rent for those on the Council’s housing register.

Beginnings

The project was awarded for funding as part of the Mayor of London’s £70 million regeneration programme to support growth and community development in London.

The community and local politicians want to see the building opened again as a pub venue that caters for the whole community. The ambition of the Council is to better connect the site with the plans for the wider area and to invest in the building in order to sustain its long term use as a community asset. The building and surrounding site, including the Thomas’ Lane car park, are owned by Lewisham council, and under the proposals it will be restored and connected to a new public space, Thomas’ Lane Yard.

In January 2021 Lewisham Council appointed Turner Works, together with Hayatsu Architects and Surman Weston as designers and the team are working towards a planning application this summer.
