Media interest in Regen issue

28 November 2016

Guardian keeps watchful eye on Lewisham/Renewal proposals

Millwall Football Club's opposition to Lewisham Council's proposal to issue Compulsory Purchase Orders in favour of Development company 'Renewal' for areas of land on and around the site of The Den has been widely documented.

Millwall has put forward its own scheme for regeneration of the local area that will benefit not only the football club going forward, but also the Millwall Community Trust, the local community itself and Lewisham Council.

In recent months, there has been increasing media interest in this story, with The Guardian newspaper, in particular, keen to get to the bottom of the relationship between Lewisham Council and Renewal, and the reason for their determination to push through their scheme and reject Millwall's alternative.

For those who wish to delve more deeply into the issues and get The Guardian's take on the story, which has been closely followed by journalist Barney Ronay in particular, here are the links to some the newspaper's articles from 2016.
