New flats and retail space proposed in east Greenwich

An application has been submitted to demolish an existing row of shops and replace with a taller block containing shop units and flats.

Current occupants of retail units are Fix It DIY and Kings of London barbers.

Looking to site on the right from nearby bus stop

Nine flats would be constructed.

The design is quite unusual for this type block, with arches featuring prominently at ground floor level.

Brass-effect railings are seen with a light grey brick the main façade material.

Woolwich Road frontage

The site at 47-53 Woolwich Road is near a number of new builds constructed over the past decade, with others recently approved such as flats at the Speedy Hire site to the east.

Speedy Hire rebuild approved

Speedy Hire redevelopment will see 58 flats above commercial space.

Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs and and pay to keep it going with hosting fees, URL fees and Theme costs adding into the hundreds of pounds.

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.

  • What the hell is that design, out of character, replacing perfect Victorian row how houses and shops with this monstrosity! Greenwich Council reject this!

  • Who designed these disgusting buildings. We can’t move in this area as it is. When the hospital was taken and the new buildings went up who designed those. Not in keeping with the area at all.Greenwich has been destroyed by designers who don’t live here.
