Another block of flats in Greenwich goes in for approval

Yes, it’s another housing block in Greenwich.

This new one just in for planning is pretty modest and includes 20 flats on Greenwich High Road above commercial units. Linea Homes are the developers.

Earlier plan

Since first drafts of the design the building has reduced in height by one floor and seen roof gardens added along with solar panels.

Of 20 flats, seven are labelled affordable. It’ll help reach annual targets in the borough which will rise from 2,685 dwellings a year under the current London Plan up to 3,204. Of the 20 flats here, 35 per cent are labelled affordable.

A number of developments are proposed or underway along Greenwich High Road  including a 63-flat block at the junction with Norman Road covered here.

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'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.

    I like the design of this development and the added features of the roof garden and solar panels. I believe it will fit in well with other developments along Greenwich High Road.

    When the development is completed I also hope the commercial units will be let quickly as Greenwich is a thriving area for both residents and tourist visiting the attractions in nearby Greenwich Town Centre so will bea good place to set up and run a business.
