July 2016 saw the securing of a flood defence pumping station project in Deptford, The Faircharm Creative Quarter
The developers have been working with local community groups and business to create a new vibrant district in Deptford designed to retain and respect the urban grain of the historic district. The development consists of a mixture of housing, small enterprise areas as well as “Creative Areas” for community use. The scheme includes the restoration of existing warehouses as well as new structures designed to blend in with them.
The development has a historic creek running alongside which has been a subject of concern because of potential flooding. The pumping station is designed to protect the area should the water level in the nearby creek rise and disturb the gravity drainage system.
