It’s been something we’ve completely missed at the Charlton Champion – the demolition and rebuilding of the two council estates at the eastern edge of Charlton, Morris Walk and Maryon Road, together with Woolwich’s Connaught Estate, under the slightly misleading banner of One Woolwich (the website which explained more about it has vanished from the internet).
If you live nearby and want to find out more, there’s a drop-in session this Wednesday evening at Greenwich Council’s offices in Woolwich. As the flyer says…
Regenerating Connaught, Morris Walk & Maryon Road/Grove Estates
The regeneration on the 3 estates has now commenced; Connaught Estate has been handed over to the developer Lovell and in November 2013 the re-housing of tenants and buy-backs of leaseholders on Morris Walk phase 1 commenced, with a temporary housing scheme in place prior to the properties being handed over.
The whole scheme will take over 13 years to deliver. The current indicative timescale for demolition & development of the estates is as follows:
– Connaught Estate: 2014 – 2022
– Morris Walk: 2019 – 2027
– 55 – 213 Maryon Road (odd numbers only) & 1-92 Maryon Grove : 2023 – 2026
To find out more about the scheme, the implications for you as a near neighbour of the scheme, and to ask questions of RBG, Lovell and Asra, we have scheduled a drop-in for:
Wednesday 8th of October at the Woolwich Centre, Wellington Street, Woolwich, SE18 6HQ, 7-9pm
If you live on the estates or nearby, it’d be good to hear your view on the plans.
