Consultation on new Abbey Wood Post Office

The Post Office is consulting on a new Post Office in Abbey Wood beside Sainsbury’s.

I’d covered plans earlier this year though all we had to go on was a couple of drawings in a planning app. Now the Post Office themselves have confirmed intentions.

Protest against closure in 2018

The former Crown Post Office closed in recent years.

The site saw approval for homes and commercial units – but nothing has happened.

Plan approved at Post Office site

It was then put up for sale.

Over the road the former site of the Harrow Inn pub also still lies vacant.

Still empty

Another Peabody site where they seem in no hurry to do anything.

Already approved but no sign of action

Peabody are notoriously slow – and are involved in yet another merger to add to the collection over the past 10 years.

Yet more issues to distract the management away from actually providing new homes.

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 also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you
