Travellers move onto Greenwich Enderby Wharf site

Land in Greenwich that was due to see a cruise terminal before that plan was scrapped is now home to travellers who moved on-site yesterday.

The land has lay empty for many years like others on the Peninsula. Owners Criterion Capital stated in July they would not proceed with a cruise terminal and would seek residential use alone.

Residential element never built

The cruise liner planned included towers. They’ve never been built.

Housing plans never went anywhere

It’s not the only Greenwich site with travellers. An area near Greenwich Millennium Village at Horn Link Way has seen numbers on site for years.

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.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

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.

    The way to go these days. I still regret not squatting at the old Tunnel Lane fire station

    Sadly thiis will happen where land is left empty and undeveloped. for many years. This is also the reason why so many empty buildings are also squatted in,

    It not uncommon for developers to sell empty sites on to other devlopers when they cannot get the planning permission they require themselves. Hopefully residential planning will soon be granted for this site at Enderby Wharf which will include some more affordable homes at locally affordable rents. .

    I wonder what will happen to Enderby House I thought the plans were also for it to be a pub. If a pub is no longer planned for Enderby House than I would guess it may become some more apartments.
