What’s Next?

Anyone know what’s going to happen here? Jeremy and I have been wondering what’s going to happen to the old bail hostel in Creek Road for some time now. It’s not the prettiest building ever but all breeze-blocked up it’s frankly a bit grim.

Usually when a sign outside a property says ‘acquired’ it means luxury flats – but does anyone have any further news? I’ve had a look through the council planning site and can’t find anything. I don’t have an agenda here – anything old and lovely (or otherwise, though there certainly were some incredible Georgian shops there not so long ago) clearly disappeared a long while ago – I’m just curious.

    I heard (though not very reliably) that it might be Tesco.

  4. Gordon of Greenwich says:

    All the Betting shops are in East Greenwich already.

  5. Jules says:

    Here in Deptford (although developers would have us say West Greenwich) we raise your paltry number of betting shops in E. Greenwich by at least twice and trump you with a pawnbroker (sorry, cash converter) for each one of them !

    new student digs?

    If this was a bail hostel was it owned by the Council??? If it was rest assured they will sell it off.What do this ‘Royal’ bunch actually fund these days??? A betting shop would be a really bad idea but not as bad as a scummy gold peddlers.

  8. I’d like to see a really nice independent bakery or cake shop/patisserie…but it will probably end up as flats :(
