Berkeley Homes have withdrawn there application to install a large screen outside Woolwich Elizabeth line station days after plans were uploaded to Greenwich Council’s planning portal.
Plans saw opposition from a number of people including local councillor Sam Littlewood (Labour – Woolwich Arsenal).
Berkeley Homes appeared to have started work on site after submitting the application and before any decisions was made. People reported a digger on site yesterday.

I popped over in the evening to see what was happening and saw a fenced off area warning of deep excavations on the site where the screen was planned.
Fencing covered holes previously dug.
It appears Berkeley may have jumped the gun hoping it wouldn’t be noticed – perhaps until it was already in place and hoping approval was then a formality.
