Woolwich block to see rooftop extension

Developer Grangewalk are planning to use new powers to increase the height of a housing block in Woolwich.

Under recent changes, developers no longer need to seek formal planning permission to extend blocks up two floors above the existing roofline.

This change limits options for local authorities – and is something anyone who lives in a block – or is planning to buy in a block built before 5th March 2018 – needs to be aware of. This block completed before that date.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high. Please 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.
