After years of inactivity with building homes on Abbey Wood’s former Post Office a demolition and construction plan has been submitted to Greenwich Council.
It’s a modest block that’s due to replace the post-war Post Office near Abbey Wood station.
Dating from 1962 the building closed around four years ago after a 10,000-strong petition to keep it open was rejected.
This cypher still just about hangs on –
The application states that “on-site works are scheduled to commence September 2023, and due for completion late 2024. It is envisaged that the duration of works described will be 72 weeks”.
Meanwhile there’s no apparent action at Peabody’s site over the road years after approval given. It’s many years since the Harrow Inn pub was demolished.
Both sit just a two minute walk from Abbey Wood station.
The former Post Office was never the world’s most attractive building inside or out. But if you were a fan, you’ve not got long to see it.
