LEWISHAM COUNCIL
FREEHOLD SALE

12th February 2014

On 3rd February 2014 Millwall Chairman John Berylson released a statement to the South London Press and News Shopper stating how he was “appalled and bewildered” that the long-term future of the Club was being put at risk by Lewisham Council as the Council had sold freeholds surrounding the Club to Renewal and had refused to consult with the Club in the process.

In response to Mr Berylson’s statement and subsequent statements set out in letters to Members, Millwall’s leaflet Ambitious Plans for a Secure Future and follow-up articles in the South London Press on 7th February 2014, Renewal has set out the process by which the freehold land was sold, the length at which the Club was consulted and responded to the Club’s claim that the future of the Club and Community Scheme are in jeopardy.

PLANNING CONSENT GRANTED

Surrey Canal Renewal - PLANNING CONSENT GRANTED

On the 12th December 2013 Lewisham Council's Strategic Planning Committee granted consent for a section 73 minor material amendment to Renewal's existing Outline Planning Consent for Surrey Canal.

The amendment to the Outline Consent allows for all the indoor sports facilities to be moved into one building from four which will allow for more efficient management and will create London's largest sports centre for community use since Crystal Palace in 1964.

Whilst the layout, massing of buildings and building heights on selected plots have been amended the changes fall within the scope of the original description of development and there is no increase in the overall floorspace of the development.
