Another application has been made to convert Woolwich’s Riverside House to flats shortly after other plans were submitted.
This latest plan seeks 209 flats after a prior application sought 199 units back in 2018.
Last month it had reduced it to 182.
As an application under permitted rights, a full submission is not needed and approval is a formality providing some pretty basic boxes are ticked.
These relate to transport and highway impacts, contamination, flood risks and noise.
No affordable homes need be provided under Permitted Rights, nor any Section 106 or Community Infrastructure Levy payment to mitigate development.
The site was previously owned by Greenwich Council until sold in 2017.
Rather than use it to house people in emergency and temporary accommodation (now around 1,400 funded by the authority), or the waiting list (above 23,000), Greenwich Council sold it to a company which now sees no “affordable” housing.
The plan from 2018 fell apart after a leading figure in that scheme was jailed when he crashed a car driving on cocaine causing brain injuries to a passenger. The company entered administration. He died earlier this year.
