Consultation on new mixed-use development at Abbey Wood Post Office site

With the imminent closure of Abbey Wood Post Office (the only Crown Post Office in Greenwich borough) coming soon, there’s news of a consultation on what is to be built in its place.

The current Post Office opened in 1962

Back in 2013 a proposal was planned for the site with replacement Post Office which was rejected by Greenwich Council:

There’s no word on whether the new plan includes a new Post Office. It’ll be interesting to see height and density of new plans.

Just over the road is the former Harrow Inn pub. Bexley Council refused this plan around the same time:

Peabody are now pushing this scheme:

Will the new developers go higher given that scheme?

Find out next week. The consultation runs from 4pm-8pm on Thursday 10th January at the C2K centre on Penmon Road/Eynsham Drive.

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.

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.

    With the crossrail delays, no start on any other planned scheme in the area including the abbey place development you could be forgiven for wondering if anything will ever be built!
