The team behind Charlton Bakehouse, which has been delivering to doorsteps across SE7 and beyond during the pandemic, are hoping to set up shop in a former estate agent in The Village.
A planning application has gone into Greenwich Council to convert the former Samanthajane office by installing an extraction system including an odour control system and silencers. (See the application and comment or search for 20/0517/F)

***exciting news*** we are in the process of applying for planning permission to open a bakery in Charlton Village. Everything has been delayed hugely by lockdown and it is nerve wracking times to be thinking of leaving our cosy bakehouse-at-the-bottom-of-the-garden but … if you like the idea you can support the application by searching ref 20/0517/F on planning.royalgreenwich.gov.uk ~ or just give us a 🧡 of courage here! ~ ps also happy dog day!! 🐕
With Charlton Village blighted by shop closures and in its possibly its lowest-ever ebb – and with no sign of a plan to revive its fortunes – the proposal is likely to gain a lot of support.
The application actually first went in before the lockdown – but as with other local businesses, word spread about the Bakehouse while people were stuck at home.
It still offers free deliveries on Tuesdays in SE7 and on other days in SE3 and SE10 from charltonbakehouse.com. We recommend the cinnamon buns.
