Catford in south-east London is famous for its large fibreglass statue of a black cat sitting atop the entrance to Catford Centre. It was built and installed in 1974 and has used its nine-lives to survive numerous rumours of its impending removal.
In 2013, the black and white fibreglass feline was listed as being part of the Catford public art scene. However, there were plans to demolish the giant “moggy” as part of Catford’s redevelopment plans, but these plans were aborted when a petition containing signatures of over 2,000 residents demanded that it be left in place.
Another much-loved symbol of Catford is the Black Horse and Harrow public house. It has been in existence since circa 1700 and is said to have been frequented by Karl Marx.
In terms of the local economy, Catford Broadway and Catford Market both play essential roles. The local authority has big plans to redevelop the town centre, and part of these plans include the rerouting of the South Circular. Work is due to commence in 2020/21 and will pave the way for new homes and new job opportunities in the area.
Repositioning part of the South Circular will also create more space for pedestrians and will make the town more readily accessible with wider pavements and additional road crossings.
The redevelopment plans for Catford also take into account building 589 new homes, some commercial floor space and a community centre on the site that was formerly occupied by Catford Greyhound Stadium.
The development, which is to be called Catford green, will comprise of 13 blocks of eight-story high buildings and will incorporate a public plaza, complete with associated landscaping.
