The site is currently occupied by the B&Q store and a large car park that serves Ikea, the B&Q and the Odeon Cinema. The development site adjoins the IKEA store and is bordered by the Blackwall Tunnel Approach (A102) and Bugsby’s Way.
Both the IKEA store and the Odeon neighbour the site – but these are not included in our proposals.
The site neighbours the Greenwich Millennium Village Masterplan, the Greenwich Peninsula West Masterplan and Charlton Riverside. The site itself is not subject to an existing site allocation or wider masterplan but is identified within the Greenwich Peninsula Opportunity Area and is therefore a strategic location where the Council and the GLA want to see new homes and employment opportunities.
