New Building Works…

Benedict has been noticing a load of new building – he points out that the next phase of the Peninsula works has been given the go-ahead – no surprise there – but has also pointed out another, more mysterious build…

“Next to Greenwich mainline station down the lovely named Prince of Orange Lane behind the Cigar Warehouse there seems to be some construction work starting and being the nosey bugger I am was wondering if you knew anything about it. I am now overlooked by a load of plant and double decker blue shipping containers.

As much as a fan I am of the inventiveness of container living, NO! Not in my back yard son! I cant find any permissions granted on the council website ( but it just lists stuff chronologically, ) I gave up after going back just three months ( a mere 1000 or so entrys) I am hoping you and your super sleuthing abilities will save me a trip to the fantasticly fun, yawn, planning office.”

The Phantom is, sadly, similarly time-strapped just now so a trip to the planning offices is a bit out for me too. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I should be a bit less pressed but for now – does anyone have any clues here? BTW The Prince of Orange Road almost certainly comes from the original moniker of the pub now the naffly-named Beluccis. Such is Progress.
