We’re developing a new Culture Strategy for the borough and we want your help.

We’re asking people who live, work, study and socialise in the borough what cultural opportunities they want to see offered in Royal Greenwich. We want to find out more about local experiences of cultural or creative activities like music or concerts, arts and crafts, theatre or performances, dance, creative writing, local heritage, festivals, community events and activities for wellbeing.

The area around Plumstead Station is dominated by busy roads, with poor quality footways and large areas of concrete. There is little greenery and poor quality pedestrian links.

We’ve created a range of design proposals to help create a safer, greener transport network for the local community.

Our proposals will help to create safer and more attractive spaces for people walking and cycling in the area, improving links with public transport connections and providing more greenery.

Please read the proposals and share your views in our survey the consultation. 

From 19 Nov 2023 to 21 Jan 2024

We want to create a borough that works for everyone. To do that we need your voice so that we have a better understanding of what matters to you, and you have the opportunities to shape important decisions that affect you – to make the services that we provide the best that they can be.

Please complete this short survey by midnight 21 January 2024 to tell us how you think we can be better at listening to you and taking your views into account.
