Homes planned in east Greenwich near Westcombe Park station

If you’ve ever walked over the bridge leading to Westcombe Park station you may have looked down at a scruffy patch of land and wonder why it’s been like that for so long.

Well, that may finally change as plans have been submitted for housing on Westcombe Hill beside the A102.

Plans include eight flats in a four storey block and a two-storey house alongside.


The application’s Design and Access Statement shows little ever being located on site.

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.

    This is the site of the old button factory isn’t it?

    Ah – the old button factory. Didn’t close that long ago – a few years, rather than a lot

    It will be strange to see buildings on that long disused piece of land, even ones so out of keeping with the rest of the road. I grew up on Humber Road, but am too young to remember Westcombe Hill before the coming of the A102M.

    Doh, the site is not where I thought it was, but I really can’t identify the location even on google 3D. 🤔

    Ah, I found it. Can’t say I have ever noticed that development since I am either on the bus or driving. I used to live in Humber Road and Westcombe Park was my station, but I have no recollection of that area.
