’24 council flats possible’ on Charlton woodland site

Gollogolly Terrace
Greenwich Council is looking for plots to build council homes

Greenwich Council believes it could build 24 new homes on woodland between Charlton Church Lane and Elliscombe Road, according to council papers.

Residents who live nearby have recently been sent letters to let them know that surveyors will be coming to look at the land, which is fenced off and is widely believed to be contaminated.

Greenwich recently announced its biggest house-building programme since the early 1980s, and the site is among 32 being assessed. Papers for a meeting of the council’s cabinet – its main decision-making body – next Wednesday state that 24 three-bedroom flats could be built on the site.

The Charlton Champion understands that while development here is not thought to be likely, the council is examining all possible locations.

Next week’s meeting is likely to approve investigating the possibility of building on the site.
