Revised plans for Greenwich development

Plans for alterations at some plots of Greenwich Millennium Village have been submitted.

Perhaps of more interest than the relatively small changes is that reserved matters normally preclude the start of building work proper.

These next plots are part of the overall Phase 4 which is bringing 489 homes.

Changes include “amendments to elevations including revised glazing, doors and replacement of glass balustrades with metal railings”.

The blocks sit almost opposite a proposed major development at B&Q over the road.

That development did consider a new road crossing and link to GMV, but there’s no confirmation that will happen.

However there wasn’t a new crossing on a flow likely to see large number of residents, which is towards nearby shops and amenities to the east.

Most future GMV plots also turn their backs to Bugsby’s Way with car parking running parallel to a mound of earth along the road.

Mound of earth set to see car parking along other side.

Whether the divisions between various plots, developments and pedestrian links in the area improve will become clear in future.

So far there appears little thought for improvements to reach shops in Charlton to the east, which requires crossing Peartree Way with no signalled or zebra crossing for thousands of future residents.

Existing road layout is hostile to those on foot


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
