New homes planned on Plumstead High Street at Poundland site
Plans have been submitted to rebuild a row of shops along Plumstead High Street with work including 16 new flats to the rear of the site.
The site is 148-156 Plumstead High Street which includes Poundland.
Images in planning documents are so out of date they include Somerfield!
If I recall correctly it changed to a co-op long ago after they purchased Somerfield, who then vacated with Budgens moving in – and they didn’t last long.
These plans see alterations to the High Street facade and new building behind the site to accommodate flats.
It raises questions of access to the current stores. Deliveries can be made to the rear as things stand. If the narrow High Street is instead required that would create additional congestion and obstructions – particularly to buses.
As anyone who travels this way knows, it’s common for the road to be blocked by vehicles making it particularly difficult for buses to pass.
It is planned that car parking spaces will be restricted to those with disabilities.
