The Greenwich Enterprise Board have plans to build 14 work spaces on Woolwich Road in Charlton. GEB operate various spots across the borough including the Royal Arsenal Gatehouse. I may be wrong, but when I pass the building it always seems half empty at best and a bit sorry looking, and I’ve long thought it’d make a great pub or restaurant. Ample space for outside seating too.

Back in Charlton, and although I like the western facing frontage with it’s stepped effect, the other sides aren’t so impressive. According to the Charlton masterplan now under consultation, active frontages are encouraged. This building offers a blank facade on it’s eastern and southern frontage, which faces the street.


The planning reference is 16/1447/F and it will be decided on Tuesday 7th March.
