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!

In the Council elections in May, Greenwich residents voted Green in unprecedented numbers! Green candidates for the target ward of Peninsula (covering East Greenwich) Matt Browne, Dan Garrun and Jenny Murphy got 32% of the vote, up from the 19% achieved in the ward in 2014. Whilst this wasn’t quite enough to win, it has sent a hefty message to Greenwich Council. East Greenwich residents have made it clear that they aren’t prepared to be taken for granted by the […]
On 3rd May East Greenwich residents have a choice to make at the ballot box – between Labour words on the toxic cruise port and the Green action plan to stop it altogether. The three sitting Labour Cllrs for Peninsula, after years of comparative quiet on the cruise terminal the Labour group they belong to passed in both 2012 and 2015, are now finally talking about the issue. This in large part thanks to the fantastic efforts of the East Greenwich […]
Green candidates for Peninsula, Dan Garrun, Jenny Murphy and Matt Browne have welcomed the news that further environmental assessments are to take place before plans to dredge part of the Thames off Greenwich Peninsula go ahead. The owners of the Intercontinental Hotel at the O2 submitted an application in September 2017 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 […]
Green candidate for Peninsula ward Dan Garrun is campaigning to overturn planning permission for the Enderby Wharf Cruise Terminal. In 2011, Labour councillors on Greenwich Council’s Planning Board unanimously approved a plan to turn Enderby Wharf into a huge terminal for cruise ships. In 2015 they voted in favour of an even bigger terminal on the site, ignoring more than a hundred residents who demonstrated against it. Those concerns haven’t gone away. Each cruise ship berthed at the proposed terminal […]
Greenwich Green Party has continued to resist plans for a polluting new tunnel in Greenwich. The prospect of a new road tunnel to link the Greenwich Peninsula and Silvertown has been worrying Greenwich residents for years. In 2017 the Government delayed a decision on the plans to allow further consideration of the effect of the scheme on air quality. The Green Party has opposed the plans since their inception, highlighting the impact of a new vehicle tunnel on already dangerously […]
Revised plans put forward by Taylor Wimpey and Countryside for a tower block development at plot 201 next to the Ecology Park on the Greenwich Peninsula do not take into account serious concerns and should be axed say Greenwich Greens. This week developers put forward plans to build a 13 storey development, down from 20, but that reduction in height is not enough to prevent the building casting a very significant shadow over the park, damaging the ecosystem permanently by […]
Greenwich can make history if its Labour Council signs up to a pioneering new initiative. The National Park City campaign seeks to designate London as the UK’s first National Park City, a community united by a shared goal of increasing the amount of green space available to its residents. Designation will be achieved by over half of London’s elected politicians backing the proposal. The campaign, headed by the London Park City charity, has been running since 2013 and is now […]
Labour-controlled Greenwich Council continues to put Peninsula residents through a lot of development pain, for very little local gain. Money collected from developers, known as Section 106 payments, is meant to be spent on projects to moderate the impact of the development on the local area. Over the past decade the Labour councillors that control Greenwich Council have approved plans for over 15,000 new homes in Peninsula ward – as such residents should expect plenty of Section 106 money to […]
Newly published figures suggest that Greenwich Council has collected over £13 million from new developments in Peninsula ward, but have spent only a fraction of that money in the ward itself. The money collected from developers, known as Section 106 payments, is meant to be spent on projects to moderate the impact of the development on the local area. The statistics, published prior to a Greenwich Cabinet meeting on 6 December, show S106 agreements across the Borough, dating back to 1998. […]
Labour controlled Greenwich Council has approved detailed plans to build on a public park which was created only two years ago. Peninsula Garden was created just south of North Greenwich tube station in 2015 as an ‘ideal rough-and-tumble stomping ground for children to play’ and ‘an idyllic spot to relax’. It features 3 acres of public open spaces, planted with flowers and edible fruits, and a public amphitheatre for community use. When landscaped in 2015, it was the first park to be built […]
