In January 2018, a detailed planning application for Spray Street Quarter was submitted to the Royal Borough of Greenwich for consideration. This followed the allocation of the site for redevelopment by the Borough, and two rounds of comprehensive public consultation as the draft plans evolved.

If approved, the plans will transform the area between Plumstead Road and Spray Street in Woolwich town centre, linking together the old and new parts of the town and breathing new life into the area.  This together with new transport links will help Woolwich to become a dynamic metropolitan town centre with an expanded retail, cultural and leisure offer and new private and affordable homes.

The plans include:

  • 742 new homes, comprising a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and townhouses.  This will include transforming Parry Place into a new residential street
  • 35% affordable housing across the scheme
  • new public square that is fronted by a new cinemashops and restaurants. This will complement the existing retail core of Woolwich town centre with a distinct food and drink offer, creating a vibrant and attractive destination throughout the day and evening
  • Flexible workspace for start-ups and smaller offices that are capable of supporting new and emerging sectors
  • A new children’s nursery
  • Around 475 new, full-time equivalent permanent jobs, plus 550 temporary jobs each year during construction
  • An anticipated £6m annual boost to the local economy
