New flats proposed at rear of Eltham High Street

Plans are in for a small block of flats on an area of land to the rear of Eltham High Street.

The proposed block is situated behind 92-94 Eltham High Street and currently a small private car park accessed via Passey Place. A public path runs alongside.

New homes here will improve the experience for pedestrians heading off the High Street between Boots & WH Smiths.

The path is currently pretty gloomy and isolated when heading from the High Street towards existing homes.

Eight flats are proposed in total. While not a big development, numerous infill projects such as these have increased resident numbers across a number of High Streets in recent years.

Plans can be viewed 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 think these news flats will improve the area and make it safer for local residents residents and people walking to and from Eltham High Street.

    More High Streets are seeing new developments being built on them along side existing buildings or built in close proximity to them as is this development.

    I hope planning permission for this development is granted soon.
