London Hotel Group (LHG) is working with Dexter Moren Associates, an award-winning architectural firm, on plans for the future of the former Greenwich Magistrates’ Court site and they are inviting Triangle residents to attend an exhibition preview to see their proposals. The public exhibition will be taking place at the former Greenwich Magistrates’ Court, 9 Blackheath Road, SE10 8PE at the following times:
• Tuesday 21 November 4.00pm to 8.00pm.
• Wednesday 22 November from 4.00pm to 8.00pm.
The preview will be an opportunity to meet the project team and discuss the plans ahead of the, wider consultation and prior to the submission of a planning application to the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
The proposals are for yet another hotel that which claims to contribute to the area and enhances the site. LHG claim they will sensitively restore the Grade II listed court building, retaining public access to the key historic rooms, and are looking at options for the surrounding buildings. LHG are suggesting that their approach will be heritage led, with appropriate architecture and materials for new buildings on site that enhance the setting of the listed building and the conservation area.
Please find here a copy of the newsletter that has been sent out to Triangle residents, inviting them to the exhibition.
The ATA’s Planning and History Hubs will be closely reviewing the proposals and any application that is made, and we would encourage Triangle residents to attend the previews and voice their concerns - you are obviously also welcome to direct those to Simon Barrs on firstname.lastname@example.org as well.
