A MULTI-MILLION pound plan to transform a train station has moved a step closer.

Architects Brown and Pletts last year drew up plans to give Deptford station, which was built in 1836, a £5.5m makeover.

Now developer Cathedral Group Ltd has been chosen by council bosses to oversee the building work, which is expected to begin in March next year.

The plans will see the station transformed to include new shops and restaurants within a public piazza.

The historic carriage ramp, which is the oldest surviving railway structure in London, will also be restored and enhanced.

Cathedral Group chief executive Richard Upton said: "We will deliver improvements in employment, economic prosperity and town centre revival which are of real benefit to the community."
