Boris Johnson approves 3,000 Greenwich Peninsula homes
1:48pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
MAYOR of London Boris Johnson has approved plans for nearly 3,000 Greenwich Peninsula homes.
Construction work on the southern quarter of the site - comprising 704 homes - will begin by the end of the summer after final planning consent was granted for the Greenwich Peninsular Regeneration Ltd project.
It is expected that a further 850 homes will start on site next March.
Proposals for 10,000 homes on the site were given outline planning consent back in 2004, but progress stalled.
Mr Johnson, said: "The transformation of Greenwich Peninsula is without a doubt one of the most exciting development opportunities in London.
"So it is fantastic to see these plans move a step closer to bringing thousands of new homes and jobs to Greenwich, helping to secure the wider regeneration of this key opportunity area and maintain London’s position as the best big city in the world."
