East Greenwich 'Liveability Fund' Update

The East Greenwich Management Agency has sent the Society details of the latest proposals for works in East Greenwich. The timescale for this is 6 months, starting in July 2005.

Approximately £800,000 is to be spent on works in Woolwich Road, Glenister Green, East Greenwich Pleasaunce and Westcombe Park Station + environs. These will include improvements to footways, new tree planting and to the appearance of shops in Woolwich Road, improved pedestrian access and amenities at Glenister Green opposite the old Annandale School.

New lighting is planned for Westcombe Park Station Crescent (if S.E. Trains pay the energy bill!), together with improvements to paving at all road entrances, better disabled access and graffiti deterrents on the rail bridge over Westcombe Hill. There is also to be improved lighting to the Ormiston Road passage and deterrents to fly-tipping at its junction with Station Yard.

The Pleasaunce will receive better definition for the Royal Naval Hospital graves with an area for secular contemplation, improved play facilities with dog-free grass play area and although there is no current commitment, the hope that there is a possibility erecting a cafĂ© in place of the existing toilets and park ‘bothy’ if a tenant can be secured willing to provide management of the area and check-cleaning of a limited-hours toilet facility.
