A block of flats approved on Blackwall Lane four years ago looks set to begin with planning documents focusing on construction submitted to Greenwich Council.
The site was formerly an MOT service centre and then used temporarily by Emergency Exit arts.
As far as MOT centres went it wasn’t too bad. The blue glazed brick was a nice touch.
But anyway it’s been down for some time now with land lying vacant.
What due now are 27 flats next door to Rothbury Hall.
As for related income for improving the local environment and services, Community Infrastructure Levy revenues will be minimal due to Greenwich Council adopting very low levels here and still not having revised to something approaching normal levels while they’ve decided much Section 106 revenue will go to, what else, GLLaB.
And of course this being Greenwich planning department where secrecy on income reigns, they still havn’t uploaded the S106 agreement four years after plans were approved.
We only know where funds are going due to the planning meeting held years ago. Most authorities upload the S106 agreement too to their planning portals and the relevant application page but its rarely seen in Greenwich.
So don’t expect much again to improve local streets which still look like this.
Healthy living strategy? Reduce emissions? Get people walking locally?
Something, something transport strategy?
Nah. Just blame a lack of action on everyone but themselves.
