The new homes will be built between Vincent Road and Wilmount Street, next to the new leisure centre, and will benefit from a town centre location with excellent transport links.

They will be built by development partner Hill Group is part of the council's investment into a new state-of-the-art leisure centre fronting General Gordon Square in the heart of the Woolwich.

It will offer a wide range of facilities, including an eight-lane 25-metre swimming pool, spa, gym and much more.

Along with the leisure centre, on top of the new homes, there will be new shops, places to eat, public spaces, while Tramshed Theatre and arts centre will also be refurbished.

The move could see Troy Court, a pub and other businesses along Vincent Road knocked down to make way for the leisure centre and new housing.

Cllr Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Council, said: “We are delighted that our transformational plans for Woolwich Leisure Centre are now being shared with residents.

"This major investment will have a profound positive impact in Woolwich Town Centre and far beyond, with hundreds of new homes, shops, restaurants and of course a state-of-the-art new leisure facility for local people to enjoy.

"We invite everyone in our borough to take part in the consultation on the new homes that are part of the scheme, and to let us know what they think about these exciting plans.”

The council say they are keen to get views from all residents on the latest proposals for the planned homes as part of the scheme.

Andy Hill, chief executive at Hill said: "We look forward to meeting the community and other stakeholders to learn and discuss proposals that keep their ambitions at the heart of the plans.

"We take a resident-led approach to regeneration to ensure the developments we create in existing neighbourhoods benefit the entire local community."
