Vision for lower-rise developments puts a stop to over 1000 homes by Greenwich Council
Greenwich’s planning committee refused more than a 1000 new homes this week.
Refusal of two schemes, Rockwells/ Charlton Riverside Scheme, SE7 and JMH Group’s Harrow Manorway, SE2, located in Opportunity Areas, went against the planning officer’s recommendations. Both schemes also met London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s target of 35% affordable housing.
Greenwich councillors concluded Rockwell’s scheme was not in keeping with its own Charlton Riverside masterplan, which sets out a vision for lower-rise developments.
