Hundreds more homes approved for Greenwich Peninsula site
The latest proposals for Greenwich Peninsula have been approved with the council's planning board rubber-stamping 882 more homes for the area this week.
The most notable is a site which includes refurbishment of a coal jetty, which provides for a new exhibition space, as well as a bar and cafe. It is also hoped mooring facilities would be put in for visiting boats but details are yet to be finalised.
Comprising of 519 units, of which 40% will be affordable, the riverside development is part of the Greenwich Peninsula Masterplan.
It will include a seven-storey block housing social rented tenants.
Two more developments of 139 and 224 homes were also approved at Monday night's planning board meeting.
The peninsula masterplan was agreed in 2004 and included outline approval for over 10,010 homes
