TFL funding for Eltham High Street Mon, 9th March
The Royal Borough has been successful in securing funding from Transport for London to develop and implement a major scheme to improve the public realm and movement arrangements in Eltham High Street over the next couple of years. An initial £2.4m of funding has been granted to develop a scheme in consultation with local stakeholders.

The architect practice East has been appointed to design a scheme and we would like to hear the views of local residents, businesses and users of the town centre to support the development of the proposals. If you would like to have your say in helping to shape the future of the town centre, please visit https://elthamhighstreet.stickyworld.com/home where you can leave comments, ask questions and subscribe to email alerts. The web portal will remain live until the early April.
