Two proposals recently covered on the site appear to have hit the buffers – for now at least.
In March I broke the news that Ikea were planning a 47 metre (150 ft) advertising pole outside their forthcoming Greenwich store. This application has now been withdrawn.
And plans for a tourist bus from the Cutty Sark up to the Observatory also appear to have been withdrawn according to TfL.
Operation of the planned bus seemed a bit of a mystery. Plans were submitted by Greenwich Council’s off-shoot GS Plus, with the scheme financially underwritten by Greenwich Council and possible involvement from Royal Museums.
Will both plans reemerge in new or altered form? I will be keeping an eye out for any new plans.
I discovered the Ikea application after searching through council planning pages, then reading through and researching planning documents.
It can be time consuming but serves a worthwhile function for the local community. I do this all myself – so any help you can give me is much appreciated.
I have a Ko-Fi page here where you can buy me a coffee.
Or become a Patron here.
A huge thanks to those who do so, and those who have signed up this week since my appeal earlier in the week.
