A contentious scheme to demolish cottages in Woolwich for a block of flats has been submitted to Greenwich Council.
The plans drew criticism during consultation due to developers seeking to demolish homes facing Sandy Hill Road. Housing on a former MOT garage to the rear and retail unit to the side has not seen much in the way of complaints.
This part of Woolwich has many buildings of character yet many are in poor condition – along with much of the public realm. No conservation area status exists for this part of town.
Full details are:
Construction of a part two / part three storey residential building comprising 23 residential units and three mews houses (for a total of 26 residential units) (Use Class C3), 65sqm of non-residential floor space (Use Class A1), with associated soft and hard landscaping, communal and private amenity spaces, modified vehicle access, accessible parking spaces and drop off, refuse and cycle storage, and associated works (following demolition of existing buildings) | 71-79 SANDY HILL ROAD AND LAND REAR OF 3 BURRAGE PLACE, WOOLWICH, LONDON, SE18 7BQ
