Plans are in to combine two retail units on Powis Street in Woolwich to create a branch of Footlocker.
There was a proposal in 2017 to combine units and open a Turkish restaurant.
Greenwich Council initially blocked the plan due to the loss of retail units and outside seating on the pedestrianised street. That was then overturned at the second time of asking.
Since then nothing has happened. The Starbucks located next door has also closed.
Sitting between the site and what was Starbucks is Murray’s Yard, which in future is set to link to a major development between Powis Street and Beresford Street.
Initial plans have been rejected, but there’s little doubt new plans should arrive soon enough.
Murray’s Yard would be a major source of footfall from Powis Street to shops and homes within the Macbean Street development site.
