Plans are in to convert flats to a 24-room hotel at Maritime House in Woolwich, which is the tall block above Wimpy.
Part of the building has been operating as a hotel since 2017 despite permission being refused in a location within sight of Greenwich Council’s Head Office.
In 2016 approval was given to convert from office space to nine flats but the owners then begun operating a hotel. That’s according to the applications own Design and Access Statement.
Not the wisest move. Just last week there was a fire nearby in Woolwich just off the other side of General Gordon Square. The Fire Brigade would lack plans and layouts for a hotel if a blaze should break out.
One reason a hotel was previously refused was due to rooms only having sky lights which could not be opened for ventilation. The applicant now proposes using a stick to allow windows to be pushed open.
