Peabody look to partly build on former Thamesmead golf course
A now-closed golf course in Thamesmead could see homes built on part of the site under Peabody plans.
Thamesview Golf Centre was a 9-hole course that opened in 1991 and closed in 2014. A recent document on the future of Thamesmead revealed the plan.
Housing could help fund nature improvements:
As the report notes, the site is beside Crossness sewage works with housing proposed to the west and a green buffer beside the Thames Water plant.
Improved links to the plant, which includes a Victorian listed structure that periodically opens to the public alongside plans for a steam railway, are mentioned.
Not much more than what is in the consultation report to go on right now, but at least Peabody are considering something. There have been calls for something in abandoned building in recent years.
