Local people are asked to help shape future development in the Royal Borough of Greenwich by sharing their ideas and views in a new consultation. The council will use the consultation to identify areas that could be developed in the future.
The council has proposed some sites that could be included as part of the site allocations local plan. It welcomes views on these sites as well as suggestions for other sites that could be developed.
Drop-in sessions have been arranged and the next one takes place on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 between 10am and 1pm at the Eltham Centre.
Further sessions take place on February 27, between 2pm and 5pm at the Greenwich Centre, 12, Lambarde Square, Greenwich, London SE10 9HB, and at the Woolwich Centre, 35 Wellington St, Woolwich, London SE18 6HQ, between 4pm and 7pm on March 3.
The consultation closes at 5pm on March 29.
Councillor Danny Thorpe, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration said: “The consultation for the site allocations local plan is an ideal way for residents to have their say on future developments and help shape what the Royal Borough will look like in the next decade and beyond."
“A number of proposals have already been outlined as part of the plan and local people can tell us what they think about the sites and what the land should be used for. They can also let the council know if there is a site near them that might be suitable for development or in need of protection.”
Residents can also get further information and view an interactive map of all of the proposed sites at www.royalgreenwich.gov.uk/siteallocations.
There are also online questionnaires where residents can leave their views on the proposals and suggestions.
