Councillor's warning over 8-storey Eltham Grove Market Place development
AN ELTHAM councillor has hit out at a new development, concerned the building will be eight-storeys high.
Citygrove plan to include 144 flats with just 49 parking spaces, as well as space for a restaurant, at the long-delayed Grove Market Place development.
Now Councillor Adam Thomas, who says parking problems will be caused for the Bob Hope Theatre, is encouraging people to make their concerns known.
The Conservative councillor said: "I’ve spoken to many residents over the last few months and they are deeply concerned about what impact an eight-storey tower block could have on the Eltham Palace Conservation Area.
"This site is hugely important to the future of Eltham, and it needs to be developed, but we appear to have a council that doesn’t care about our community.
"It’s disappointing that the developers have not sought to offer residents something different to the original problems which saw so much opposition previously. I would now urge residents to get their views into the council and make their voices heard."
