Greenwich Planning & Conservation Areas

Conservation areas are sites of historical or architectural importance. Building and redevelopment can be a more complex process due to more planning regulations and constraints applying within such areas. However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.

Transport for London (TfL) and Triangle London Developments submitted a joint planning application for a mixed use development in Kidbrooke, Greenwich. The Royal London Borough of Greenwich’s planning committee granted planning permission on the former RAF base now owned by TfL.

Plans for the 4 acre site include 400 new homes. Thanks to the Mayor of London’s manifesto promise to release public land for competitively priced housing, 50 per cent of those will be classed as ‘affordable’.

Along with housing, new commercial, retail and office units are planned. Architects have also designed a new village square helping to create a community feel.

Local transport facilities will undergo improvements to cater for the increase in both residents and visitors to the area

Work on the site should begin in 2018 with the first homes completed in 2020.
