Plans in for next stage of major Thamesmead development

Plans are in covering a plot at a development seeing almost 2,000 homes near Plumstead bus garage.

Berkeley Homes and Peabody are behind new homes with details of Plot 9 facing Nathan Way in Thamesmead near the Ridgeway now submitted to Greenwich Council.

Last year Plots 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8 gained full planning permission and are now underway. Plots 1, 5, 6 & 9 was approved in outline with all matters reserved. Now those reserved matters are in for Plot 9.

Plots across site

The site sits just 150 metres from Plumstead station though access is currently poor. A consultation is underway on changes to the underpass.

The site as a green space in the middle hence the hoardings mentioning green space. Unfortunately as soon as leaving the site to reach nearby stations residents will meet a one-way system.

Previous ideas to convert the three one-way system into two-way traffic to humanise the area were dropped.

Prisons including Belmarsh lie to the north of the site.

Overall the development – named Lombard Square – saw an increase from 1750 initially approved and now stands at 1913 homes.

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

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.

    • I hope the developers and Local Authorities work together to improve the public realm, amenities and local infrastructure. This is sadly often neglected around new developments.
