CMA Planning took forward and helped to shape these proposals, which involved the redevelopment of a former petrol filling station with a five storey mixed use building to include retail and office accommodation together with 14 flats and car / cycle parking. Following extensive consultation and dialogue with planning officers from the London Borough of Greenwich, planning permission was granted by the Council in February 2008. Key issues that were considered included the principle of residential use on the site, design and scale, density, impact on local amenity, flooding and sustainability. The Council accepted that proposal would take a visually unattractive and vacant site and replace it with a well-designed mixed use scheme, bringing employment and a range of good quality homes to the area. As a result of the financial climate, the developer then took forward an alternative scheme for a hotel. CMA secured approval for a 82 bed hotel, to be operated by Travelodge, from Greenwich in August 2009. The original mixed use scheme was then built out and completed in 2013.
