Housing and Development in London

Housing, North Woolwich

New development planned in North Woolwich by ferry terminal

Plans are in to construct 163 flats by the northern Woolwich Ferry terminal, in a number of buildings reaching up to 13 storeys.

I recently took a walk around North Woolwich and wondered when plans would be submitted for the large amount of vacant land in North Woolwich beside the Thames.

The post looked at the many housing plans lining the DLR route from Woolwich Arsenal to Canning Town. Most other stations are in line for big developments nearby. The only one at the time without planned large -scale developments in the vicinity was King George V station. Well, the first large-scale development is now in for planning.

An emerging plan for the wider area foresees much more housing. The old tracks approaching the now-closed North Woolwich station (and museum) may be built over.

The old station building itself is seeing £960k spent on refurbishment. Newham Council are spending £597k with the London Regeneration Fund providing £363k after Newham Council won a bid in 2016. This was yet another fund that saw many London Councils gain funds yet Greenwich Council again failed.

A tower by Royal Victoria Gardens is also on the drawing board.

Here;s the full details: 17/02106/FUL | Development of 163 residential units comprising 3 houses and 160 flats over lower ground, upper ground and up to 13 upper storeys; and associated access, servicing, parking, amenity space and landscaping (Application site is affecting the setting of a Grade II Listed Building). | Land Corner Of Store Road And Pier Road Store Road North Woolwich London
