The growth agenda is gathering momentum in Royal Greenwich. Wide ranging decisions taken by Cabinet this week aims to create avenues of opportunity across the Borough. Despite the actions of the Coalition Government to reduce the influence of local government through funding cuts, Greenwich Council has found creative ways to kick start the local economy.
The Charlton Riverside Masterplan has entered an important phase in its development. The proposals for the Woolwich Town Centre will see the Leisure facilities moved to the Town Centre. Eltham Town Centre will see a cinema being developed on the Poundland site. Greenwich Town Centre will have the Borough Halls developed as a significant Creative Hub. Local action for local people. The Council is delivering an exciting agenda in tough times.
The consultation which took place last week under the banner of the Woolwich Ideas Exchange buzzed with ideas about the Town. Those ideas are worthy of serious consideration. Those debates will continue because the community rightly believes it should have a voice . Hopefully we will have a further debate in January to follow up on capturing new ideas. In the meantime I look forward to hearing from you on this blog.
Worth a visit to Rushgrove House on Saturday and Sunday 23/24th of November for an art exhibition in this wonderful hidden treasure opposite RA Barracks next to Cambridge House.
