Event on possible Greenwich street and townscape changes tonight

An event will be held tonight (Wednesday 22nd February) on potential changes to streets in both west and east Greenwich.

West Greenwich library will host the event between 7pm and 8:30pm.

The project at this stage is to seek comments from people on the local area and any issues that arose in the past or exist now.

West Greenwich was the site of a “Hills and Vales” Low Traffic Neighbourhood for 18 months until 2022. Initially it saw physical obstacles which was later revised to CCTV enforcement permitting emergency services and taxis through.

It didn’t however, permit blue badge holders unlike measures in other boroughs.

Supporters stated it reduced congestion on narrow back streets including past James Wolfe School which includes facilities for deaf children.

Opponents stated it pushed traffic onto surrounding roads including via east Greenwich.

The new proposal seeks to cover both east and west Greenwich. That does however, then raise objections from those in Charlton of displacement.

A website covers the history of projects in the area alongside the current consultation which can be viewed here.



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.

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.
