Simon Barrs, our new planning rep, writes: “There are two current planning applications to bring to Triangle residents’ attention.
First, the Mercure Hotel on Catherine Grove wants to construct another glass box to create four bedrooms on the second floor above the entrance.
Here is what the glass box would look like and what the box over the Mercure door would look like

Further details can be found on the Council’s Online Planning Portal   
Public Consultation Expires on the 26th January 2016.

The second proposal is for the demolition of twenty garages off Ashburnham Place, between Langdale Road and Greenwich South Street, to be replaced with four x four-storey, four-bedroom mews houses. Further details can be found on the Council’s Online Planning Portal.  Public consultation expires on February 9th 2016.
Public consultations are ongoing for both, and any observations for or against can be lodged on the Council’s Planning Portal.
