Proposal for new homes at Woolwich MOT Centre

Plans have been submitted for a new block of flats on Hillreach in Woolwich.

This isn’t the first application for the site near the MOD barracks beside the former Kings Arms pub which was redeveloped over recent years.

Home totals have been whittled down from 23 to 17 compared to 2019 plans covered here.


2019 plans were rejected

A now-closed pub called The Village Blacksmith sits beside the site to the west.

Plans for a Tesco Express the other side below new housing were approved but little has happened since.

Planned frontage from 2022 application

The entire road has seen substantial changes over the past decade with more to come. Greenwich Council plans homes via their off-shoot developer Meridian a short distance to the east, while the MOD plan to vacate the barracks with the potential for thousands of new homes.

A previously mentioned date was 2028, with news of a masterplan being drawn up earlier this year.

Plans for the new block on Hillreach can be viewed on the Greenwich Council planning website here.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.
