Developers again try for block beside Greenwich Ecological Park

Developers behind Greenwich Millennium Village are again aiming for a block beside the ecology park.

Previous plans were blocked in 2018, though a new Environmental Impact Assessment has just been submitted to Greenwich Council looking into a 13-floor block.

Developers had originally planned a 20-storey tower on site before revising down.

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 think the 13 storey block is much better than the original 20 storey block which developers wanted to build on this over looking Greenwich Ecological Park.

    I did wonder why the developers could not build a smaller block of retirement style apartments to possibly house older residents moving to the area. As this would be a nice relaxing setting for them to enjoy.

    Just a thought !!.

      For one, the flats are rather expensive, not really affordable for the average retiree. And then there are the 2-3 weeks wait for GP appointment at the Peninsular practice.

    I suspect it will go through this time. They bribed the Ecology park with a new building to relocate to and my impression from the latest presentation on the matter is that they are on board now.
