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!

Greenwich residents have expressed outrage after an irreplaceable pond and ecosystem was bulldozed to make space for IKEA’s new car park on the Greenwich Peninsula. The pond located near Bugsby’s Way was an important habitat for newts, specialised plants, invertebrates and migratory birds. It was also a much loved oasis for residents and visitors, who are losing their green spaces with each new development. Furthermore this ecocide could have been avoided. Greenwich resident and Friend of the Greenwich Ecology Park […]
The fight against the dirty Greenwich Cruise Terminal continues and Greenwich Greens are asking for your help by signing two petitions. Dan Garrun, a Green candidate for Peninsula ward, said today: Thanks to great work by residents on the Peninsula there does seem to be some movement against the polluting scheme from the mayor’s office and in other places including the European Parliament, so it’s incredibly important that the pressure is kept up. Sign to fight for a cleaner Greenwich! […]
Newly published figures have revealed how Greenwich Council’s delivery of social housing is well below the London average. The figures, published by the GMB union, show that over the past year 23.1% of the new homes built in London have been for social rent (a form of housing traditionally known as council housing). In contrast just 8.3% of homes built in the Labour-controlled Royal Borough of Greenwich over the same time period have been for social rent – just 130 out of […]
Its summer and time to get out an about. This Sunday volunteers and friends of the Greenwich Green Party headed out from Oxleas Woods to the Thames Barrier for an educational and inspiring jaunt around our beautiful Borough. We’re intending on doing a regular walk around various bits of the borough as a way to get active and as an antidote to boring stuffy meetings (although our business meetings are hardly ever that boring…) We organise the walks in two […]
What is your background? I have a background in nursing, social care and housing law and live in Thamesmead. I now work in the housing sector. Has this work affected your political outlook? When I started working in the housing law sector I was unaware of the hardship that people experienced accessing advice and assistance in defending their rights. Since the changes to welfare and the introduction of the bedroom tax and subsequent changes to legal aid there has been […]
Members of the Greenwich Green Party have voted to stand aside their candidate in Eltham and will not contest the constituency in the General Election to be held on June 8th 2017. The decision was not made as part of a so-called electoral alliance but to protect a marginal seat from falling into Conservative hands. In our discussion with the local Labour Party, we were pleased to elicit a promise that they will push for a better electoral system based […]
NB: This article applies to a parliamentary candidate for the 2017 General Election. What is your background and when did you come to live in Greenwich? I’m South African by origin from Johannesburg. I came to London in 2008 when I was 25, just for the adventure really and I wasn’t disappointed. Like most young people I moved around quite a bit, looking for decent rent options and a place to put down roots. Eventually a good friend managed to […]

I’ve lived in South London for eight years and I am very proud of my wonderful community in Woolwich Dockyard where I’ve lived for three years. Update: Dan has moved to Southend and is now helping the local Green Party to gain council seats there. We thank him for his contributions. As the co-coordinator for the Greenwich Green Party I’ve contributed to many local projects, from working with schools and campaigning for clean air to protecting green spaces and standing […]
