Flood storage to be built in Beckenham Place Park

A consultation is underway on plans to build a large flood storage reservoir in Beckenham Place Park. If built it will have a dramatic effect on the park.

Further information can be found on Lewisham Council’s website at:

Lewisham and Catford Flood Alleviation Scheme

Beckenham residents that use the park may wish to comment on the consultation. The Environment Agency is holding events to get feedback to help shape the final scheme. The events will be held on:

  • Friday 4 July, 10am to 3pm, Lewisham Shopping Centre
  • Thursday 17 July, 10:30am to 1pm, Catford Civic Suite
  • Thursday 17 July, 1:30pm to 3pm , the market on Catford Broadway
  • Saturday 26 July, 10am to 2:30pm, Ravensbourne Community Centre

Alternatively, if you can’t attend on these days but would like more information about the project, you can contact Richard Peddie at the Environment Agency on 01252 729541 or email pso.selondon&nkent@environment-agency.gov.uk.

This stretch of the Ravensbourne only seems to be a flood risk with road run-off
