Tower plan for Greenwich cut in height after campaign
Greenwich Millenium Village developers have submitted new plans which cut the height of a tower planned by the ecological park.
The twenty floor block revealed at public consultation last year is now thirteen storeys.
The building is on plot 201 and shown in orange on this overview of the GMV masterplan:
Initial plans have proven controversial with many local people unhappy at the prospect of the building overshadowing the adjacent park.
20-storeys is permitted under a previous outline planning application approved by Greenwich Council.
The number of flats is reduced from 90 to 66. A total of 12 parking spaces are included with four wheelchair accessible spaces and two electric charging stations.
Elsewhere on the GMV
Work on the energy centre is also due to commence shortly. It’s located the south east of the site.
And twenty years after Greenwich Millenium Village commenced huge swaths of the site are still empty with no imminent plans to build despite the need for more housing.
Once again the danger of placing large amounts of land in the hands of one developer is revealed. Breaking up large plots is more likely to see much needed housing built.
The planning reference is 18/0825/R. Click here to search.
