11 January (Part 1) - Seeking the stamp of approval

As forecast there was no way I could look at the plans for the Abbey Wood Post Office site yesterday, they were on show for only four hours more than a mile or a 12 minute bus ride away.

Fortunately Bonkers has friends who were prepared to make the trek.

Social Media posts were almost universally negative although perhaps more criticism is aimed at the consultation process and the developer’s inability to answer questions than the building itself. (The lack of proof reading is once again appalling.)

To my mind it looks far more appropriate to the local scene than the skyscraper that Peabody planned to put up across the road.

Peabody will be exhibiting its revised plans in the much more convenient Abbey Wood Community Centre next week. Thursday 17th January from 15:30 to 19:30 and Saturday 19th from 10:00 to 13:30.

The Post Office will close permanently next Wednesday and no nearby alternative is available.
