Abbey Wood is set to be transformed following Greenwich Council’s approval of an £85 million planning application.

The Cross Quarter development includes 216 new homes, a 100 bed hotel, a nursery, public square and a large Sainsbury’s supermarket in Harrow Manor Way and Felixstowe Road.

Greenwich Council passed the plans last night despite objections from Bexley Council due to fears over transport modelling and the Greater London Authority, who are worried about the size of the Sainsbury’s.

The planning board decided regeneration is necessary with Crossrail due to be built by 2018.

Developers Berkshire Investment Capital and Development Securities claim the plans will generate £125 million of revenue for the community and provide 500 full and part-time jobs.

Steven Glancy, of the firm, said: “The support received from the local community has been really positive and we have taken away a clear message that people want to see this development happen as soon as possible.”

More than 200 residents have been consulted and developers hope the first phase will be complete in 2015. See cqabbeywood.co.uk for more details.
