Greenwich Council are likely to rubber stamp a new co-op food store at a meeting to be held tomorrow.
The new store is located in a block within the River Gardens development in east Greenwich.
Progress on the development has been very slow. In the 12 years since approval, only around 75% of 667 homes have been constructed. Many retail units have lay empty for years, so this is welcome news for residents:
Plans for a riverside pub from award winning local brewery Tap Room were scrapped after some local people complained it would be noisy. Tap Room have now decided not to proceed.
Many other units in the development remain vacant.
