Woolwich pub building extension plan submitted

Plans to add a couple of floors onto the building which includes Woolwich Wetherspoons has been submitted.

Thames House sits on the corner of Wellington Street and Thomas Street beside General Gordon Square.

Two additional floors would be added to the structure and be set-back. Seven flats are included within. The site sits within a Conservation Area introduced in 2019.

The post-war building sits flush with its neighbours facing General Gordon Square though a far taller neighbour is coming beside those.

A residential block outside Woolwich Tesco has been approved.

Approved in 2022

Last week fencing went up but I’ve not been back to see if related to the approved block or something else such as utility work. If you know, let me know in the comments.

Opposite the pub sits part of the “island site” which has seen redevelopment plans but no action for some years.

The latest revised plans were submitted back in March 2023.

General Gordon Square is seeing work however on a new leisure centre nearby.

To the rear, approved plans see almost 500 new homes.

Adverts are far from enough to cover site costs 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.

  • It looks like the hoarded off area is for the cladding works.

  • It would make a good use of space in a prime town centre location close to Woolwich Arsenal Station, DLR and a short walk from the Elizabeth Line Station.
    With the pub and local shops on the doorstep I think this would be a popular development for possible professional people and local residents looking to live in
    Woolwich dependent on whether the flats will be for rent or sale?.

  • Looks a pretty decent extension. Surprised the owner didn’t want to rebuild with a bigger block.
