Under Lewisham council’s “Stronger, Safer Communities” plan, of the 24 community centres in the borough there are:
7 facing closure
5 To be redeveloped as smaller centres to make room for flats.
2 To be turned into nurseries
5 To be crammed with community or school groups with nowhere else to go
4 facing higher charges or cuts, or possible redevelopment
That’s 23 out of 24 centres in trouble. This is a complete decimation of community centres in Lewisham. All the community centres affected are listed on the associated pages.
