Greenwich Community Garden Under Threat

A derelict car park that has been turned into a community garden is under threat of being torn down, to create space for housing.

The Royal Hill Community Garden in Greenwich has taken hundreds of hours to build and care for.

But now it may be lost, as new plans for the plot have been revealed. Devlopers want to build two new family homes on the site.

We reached out to Greenwich council on this issue and a spokesperson said; 

"London is desperately short of housing and the Royal Borough of Greenwich, like all local authorities, is committed to creating new homes where we can.
 
"Until the project progresses however, we are liaising with current users of the space to explore whether they are interested in a temporary license to allow them use of the site before construction of new family homes (with gardens) begins."
