Foxtons planning to invade Blackheath – Abbie commented:
Interesting anonymous note regarding the recently closed down Army Recruitment Office just dropped through my door reading:
Foxtons Estate Agents have brought the old Army Recruitment Office at 9 Lee Road, SE3 in the Village & have very quietly applied for change of usage.
1. Change of usage is a virtually impossible task for anyone apart from foxtons for some reason. By granting this the council will be setting a dangerous precedent which could lead to the demise of your already beleaguered local shops.
2. Foxtons would require parking permits for a very substantial number of cars for the station car park which is already overloaded. Should this happen parking in the village will become virtually impossible. This will be further aggravated by the planned closure for redevelopment of the Blackheath Grove car park.
If this is of concern to you you MUST write or email by Wednesday 12th May at the latest to:
48 Woolwich New Road
020 8854 8888

Sure enough, if you search around on the Greenwich Council’s website, here is Foxton’s request.
This seems like a really unnecessary addition to the high street.
