We recently submitted a planning application to expand and improve Cockpit Deptford.
- The building will open its doors to the community with a courtyard garden accessed from Creekside and small, public cafe.
- A new, ground floor education space will host workshops, exhibitions and events.
- New single storey studios in the rear yard and an internal reconfiguration will improve facilities for the makers’ community and create space for 20 new businesses.
- The existing wall alongside Creekside with the Love over Gold mural is in a poor state of repair and will require removal to open up the courtyard garden and provide open public access.
The existing wall alongside Creekside with the Love Over Gold mural will require significant repair and opening up to provide open public access to the courtyard garden. (You can find out more about plans for the Love Over Gold mural below.)
A new welcoming public entrance will be created for the local community through the existing exterior wall on Creekside, opening up the creative studio space and providing public access to a courtyard garden and cafe. We are exploring creative ideas to preserve the mural for years to come. Come along to our consultation events to share your ideas.
In the meantime, you can view our digital brochure here.
