WOOLWICH CENTRAL MASTERPLAN
Woolwich Central Masterplan Phase 3 and 4
Meyer Homes has designed a residential-led mixed use redevelopment which presents an excellent opportunity to provide much needed homes and improved public open space in the heart of Woolwich whilst delivering physical, social, economic and environmental enhancements to the town centre.
The proposed site, bound by Grand Depot Road, the South Circular, Wellington Street and Love Lane – not far from Woolwich Arsenal station – was granted outline planning consent by Royal Borough of Greenwich Council in 2007. The Council office and the Tesco store formed phases 1 and 2 of the development Woolwich Central Masterplan and have now been completed. Meyer Homes has since acquired the rest of the site and have now submitted new proposals for the remaining two phases.
We would like to thank all who participated in our pre-application consultation, either at meetings, online or at the public exhibitions in March 2017 and June 2017. Your valuable comments and insights have been vital in informing the emerging design of the proposals.
Learn more below.
In our submitted plans, we are proposing to maximise the strategic location of both Phase 3 and Phase 4 in the town centre by incorporating key benefits to the wider community. The scheme will deliver:
- ✓ New Homes – a combination of private and affordable flats – across a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bed units
- ✓ A greater sense of place – in addition to broadening what the town centre has to offer, Woolwich Central’s landmark building will also act as a signpost to heart of Woolwich
- ✓ Improved public realm – external landscaping to create a network of new, attractive outdoor green spaces through the development, including café spill out and opportunities for play and quieter seating
- ✓ Enhanced accessibility – new pedestrian route from General Gordon Square and Phase 3, to Phase 4 and the Royal Artillery Barracks and beyond; integrating the site and improving connectivity with the town centre, railway and DLR stations
- ✓ Retail, office and community space – provision for flexible commercial floorspace which includes good quality retail, affordable incubator workspaces, and a venue dedicated to community use
