Demolition of Woolwich Catholic Club due to begin shortly

An application has been submitted for forthcoming demolition of the former Catholic Club in Woolwich for a replacement student block.

Approved in 2022

Demolition plans of the structure at 81-88 Beresford Street include details of lane closures of Beresford Street.

One lane of Beresford Street closed alongside pedestrian routes.

The footway is closed outside the Beefeater restaurant included within the Premier Inn hotel.

Plans for the site first saw this block revealed way back in 2016.

That was then revised to currently approved plans.

Site works for “noisy works” will “unless agreed otherwise, will be limited to the approved working hours as detailed, this being between 08:00 am and 18:00 pm Monday – Friday and 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturday, this will include the collection/delivery of equipment.”

Still standing years after closure but not for much longer

A contractor to build the replacement block has yet to be appointed. Demolition does not include the existing basement.

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.

One thought on “Demolition of Woolwich Catholic Club due to begin shortly

  • The purpose built student block in Woolwicv and located close to the Elizabeth Line Station will be welcomed by students. It is great to see another empty building im a busy lication seeing a new development.

    I wish work would start on the redeveopment land Business site at the bottom of Wellington Street. This building is in a state of disrepair and becoming an eyesore.
