Live, work or visit Plumstead? Your views are wanted.

A survey has been established for residents and businesses in Plumstead to find out their likes and dislikes, and what improvements can be undertaken. The town has seen no shortage of issues in recent times but is also undergoing big changes in the near future.

A group of local residents have created a survey to find out exactly what people want. Greenwich Council have begun to show interest in the area after tireless campaigning from locals, but it’s still a very slow process.

As an example, consultation on just what £150,000 of TfL money will be used towards along the High Street still hasn’t begun halfway through this financial year.

The survey can give them, and local business, pointers for forthcoming improvements.

Who knows, in coming years further steps such as Conservation Zone status, town centre managers and even Business Improvement District status could arrive.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    Plumstead High Street is even more rundown than I remember from 40 plus years’ ago. I went to school in Plumstead and it was shabby then. You couldn’t pay me to live in Plumstead and the Crossrail effect, if there really is one (property prices notwitstanding), will take many years to materialise.

    I am surpised that a survey is needed, given the obvious and the other comments made
    The whole high street should be dunked in a large tub of bleach. There is no environmental violation that has not been committed. The street should be used as a text book example of how a council should not manage an area.

    Not to be political I think that the council as become complacent and after over 25 years in office the only improvement they have been soley responsible for is…………….still waiting……..still waiting.

    Through all this there is still a caring community willing to stand up and be counted and that is something to be celebrated.

    There is a real problem with dog poo. I live close to the common and it’s horrible in all the streets up here . There are so many dog walking hotspots here but not many dog bins, notices, or cleanups.
