London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called in two applications recently rejected by Greenwich’s Planning Board.

The two schemes – Charlton Riverside and Eynsham Drive at Abbey Wood – comprise 771 homes in Charlton and 272 at Abbey Wood.

Sadiq Khan will now make the decision for approval or rejection.

Local people in Charlton had launched a vociferous campaign against the proposal on industrial land and complained that the scheme deviated from the recently adopted Charlton Masterplan, which cost £854,000 to draw up.




Last week this site revealed that £154,000 was spent drawing up a smaller masterplan in Woolwich two years ago that was scrapped before adoption.
