The area around Shooters Hill parade of shops is neglected and underinvested
The area behind is unpaved and attracts antisocial behaviour. Fly-tipped rubbish builds up continually.
On the street side the paving is in a terrible state and dangerous to pedestrians. The council has completely neglected the area for decades.
Kidbrooke deserves better!

At an event at St. Peter’s Church on Thursday 11th July, a panel of transportation and climate experts lined up to urge residents not to give up the fight to get the Silvertown Tunnel construction cancelled. Around 80 local residents, councillors and union representatives turned out to hear a meeting arranged by Stop the Silvertown Tunnel Coalition – in partnership with Extinction Rebellion Greenwich, Greenwich Living Streets and Speak Out Woolwich – on how the proposed tunnel will affect them. […]
Greenwich and Bexley Green Party representatives joined demonstrators from the No to Silvertown Tunnel Coalition, East Greenwich Residents’ Association (EGRA), Extinction Rebellion Greenwich (XR Greenwich) and local schoolchildren at City Hall on Wednesday, 19th June to protest the imminent award of a contract for constructing a new road tunnel from Silvertown to East Greenwich. How does this affect me? High levels of air pollution is proven to shorten lifespans and cause disease not only of the lungs but other major […]
Efforts to lobby Transport for London and Greenwich Council to reverse plans to construct a new road tunnel from Silvertown are continuing despite some reports that a contractor for the £1bn scheme is close to being finalised. Greenwich and Bexley Green Party reaffirm the call on Greenwich Council leader Dan Thorpe and TfL Transport Chief Heidi Alexander to scrap the expensive and unnecessary scheme. Debunking the argument for the tunnel Dan Thorpe’s core argument is that London needs transport investment […]
Green London MEP elected! Following European elections in late May, the Green Party gained over 2 million votes and increased its representation in the European Parliament to 7 MEPs – an increase of 4. This means that the Green Party now has European elected representatives for almost all parts of England except the North East. Green Party supporters in London will be represented in the EU by Scott Ainslie, who has served as councillor for Lambeth Council since 2014. Our […]
Greenwich and Bexley Green Party has signed an open letter to the Mayor of London and the Deputy Mayor of London for Transport calling for plans to build a new road tunnel between Newham and Greenwich to be scrapped. The Stop the Silvertown Tunnel coalition is calling for Sadiq Khan to show he means what he says about London’s climate emergency by issuing the urgent cancellation of the Silvertown Tunnel construction. The coalition comprises representatives of the local branches of […]
This week has seen another environmental victory as Greenwich Council has decided to declare a climate emergency. Our co-ordinator, Caolán Byrne, requested that a climate emergency be declared at the February 2019 council meeting and this was met at the time with a blank refusal as the Labour administration argued that the existing strategy was sufficient. You say you take best practice from other councils, and you’re a planning authority that delivers zero-carbon objectives. How is this possible that large […]
Plans to dredge part of the Thames off Greenwich Peninsula could harm precious wildlife habitats. The owners of the Intercontinental Hotel by the O2 have submitted an application to Greenwich Council to extend the pier that lies adjacent to the Hotel. The pier, known as the Ordinance Wharf pier, is currently disused and the submitted plans seek to refurbish and enlarge it, enabling passenger ferries to use the pier and creating space for a new restaurant on it. The application documents confirm that, as […]
A message from Dan Garrun (Greenwich Green Party Co-Ordinator, 2015-2018) on the news that the toxic cruise terminal proposed for Enderby Wharf has been scrapped. It’s official the plans for a dirty, polluting cruise terminal at Enderby Wharf have been binned! And only a few days after the horrendous application to build on the Greenwich ecology park was thrown out too. We fought long hours on the Eco Park and savor that victory but our cruise terminal campaign was our […]
On Tuesday 6 November Greenwich Council Planning Board considered proposals for a 13 storey tower by the Greenwich Ecology Park – and refused them! This is great news for our wildlife. The proposed tower would have cast a very significant shadow over the park, damaging the ecosystem permanently by reducing ground temperatures and sunlight. At the Planning Board meeting the wonderful Friends of the Ecology Park comprehensively demonstrated how harmful that impact would be. The Board listened and threw the plans out. […]
On 8 October Greenwich & Bexley Green Party held its Annual General Meeting for 2018. The meeting included a huge thank you to Dan Garrun, who served as Coordinator for the Greenwich Green Party from 2015 to 2018, and led the Party to its best ever performance in May’s local elections. Dan resigned his position on moving to a new part of the country and was given a heartfelt vote of thanks for all his work. A new Executive Committee […]
