The next phase of homes at Greenwich Millennium Village has been submitted for approval.
This latest plot comprises 135 homes and labelled block 301 on the image below:
All plots on the right hand side of the above image will eventually include 1,750 homes. Earlier builds total 1,000.
Those in purple are complete. Plots 204 and 205 will be occupied this year and 302, 303, and 304 in 2021.
Plot 201 was a contentious tower block plan rejected by Greenwich Council.
Designs have evolved from referencing early stages of GMV design, as seen in this drawing:
Now it’s much more angular and simplified into standard blocks:
The site is around a 15 minute walk to North Greenwich tube station and 10 minutes to Westcombe Park station on the Thameslink and Southeastern lines to London Bridge and beyond plus services towards Kent.
Car parking spaces will total 84.
This stage will see some of the tallest buildings if approved at 11 storeys in height. It’s already approved in an outline application.
The overall GMV development has “affordable” housing set at 20% and approved back in 2014. Each plot is part of that greater total. This particular one is 15% “affordable”.
Some plots have next to none and some have the majority as “affordable”. Most “affordable” housing is located in the barrier blocks next to the aggregate yard.
There’s some space for D1 use and documents mention a nursery. No additional retail space as wanted by many locals, though phases finishing this year and in 2021 should include some.
