The Old Fire station in East Greenwich has recently been renovated to provide a number of flats. There are now proposals for a small block of student flats to be built in the car park, adjacent to the elevated Blackwall Tunnel approach.
It’s not a large block, though the location is far from great. The council advised the developers that a hotel or student flats would be preferable to housing given its location. It joins another building abutting the approach, with an Ibis hotel under construction nearby.
Over in Charlton, and the owners of the Antigallican pub have put in planning permission for conversion of space above the pub, along with an extension, to provide 11 flats.
They are also looking at providing two commercial units beside the building – a gym and retail unit. Planning Reference is 15/2272/F
