Work on 349-room Greenwich hotel set to start?

Construction of a hotel at the former Greenwich Magistrates Court may be a step closer with a trilogy of planning applications submitted.

The site has sat empty for some years before revisions were given the green light in 2023 which increase rooms from 293 rooms to 349.

London Hotel Group submitted plans and it’s now eight years since the court building closed.

initial proposal dropped

Initial plans demolished former school buildings. This idea was later dropped.

Instead Victorian buildings on site would be reused and extended.

Refurbished school buildings

The court building is Grade II listed and will be altered into part of the wider hotel project.

An application looking at plant machinery to be used can be seen here.

Greenwich hotels

This part of town is already popular with hotel operators with a Premier Inn and Travelodge nearby.

Travelodge also have approval for another hotel on the peninsula.

Meanwhile work on the Intercontinental hotel is ongoing to replace dangerous cladding panels. It’s not their propensity for being flammable this time but that they’d shown signs of cracking with the danger of falling off.

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.
