Last week I mentioned a public exhibition of proposals to alter the planned development at the old Thorn Lighting site off Fairthorn Road – or “land at rear of Victoria Way” in planning parlance. This is a slightly squashed site between a storage warehouse (on Victoria Way), Gurdon Road, the Charlton-Westcombe Park railway line and the A102.
In case you couldn’t make it up there, here’s the exhibition boards so you can see the plans for yourself. The main proposal is to incorporate 20 family homes into the site, with gardens backing onto those in Gurdon Road. To compensate, the blocks of flats will be bigger, and Fairview New Homes still wants to have 160 car parking spaces.

There’s also a feedback form which is due to be returned by 14 November, although I’m sure you can also just email Pavitar Mann at Curtin & Co (pavitarm[at]curtinandco.com) with your thoughts on the new plans.
This is all ahead of a formal planning application, which will be submitted to Greenwich Council early next year. The last scheme on the site was initially refused by Greenwich, but then allowed by a planning inspector. I’m sure the local councillors for the site would also be interested in what you think.
