We are currently drafting our ‘Our Greenwich’, a blueprint to guide our actions as a Council for the next 4 years.

This plan will be formed of a number of missions that we will commit to work towards alongside our residents, communities, businesses and partners.

To help develop our new corporate plan, we want to understand the experience of people living and working in Greenwich and their day-to-day challenges and concerns for the future. 

From 17 Aug 2022 to 25 Sep 2022

We want to make sure the strategy reflects the issues that are most important to local people and identify where we can make improvements to transport around the borough.

The Council made a non-immediate Article 4 Direction on 3rd August 2022 to remove the permitted development right to change the use of a building from a use falling within Class E (commercial, business and service uses) of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) to a use falling within Class C3 (dwelling house)  of that Order.

This Direction, if confirmed by the Council, will come into force on 3rd August 2023 and will apply across parts of a number of retail centres in the Borough. Permitted development rights for this type of development will then be withdrawn and a grant of planning permission will be required.

Royal borough of Greenwich is about to undertake a 'Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment' (PNA). This will look at key health needs of the local population and how pharmacies meet these in our borough. 

The PNA will be used to make decisions about where we have new pharmacies, and how we might change and improve our current pharmacies so they work better for our residents. 

An important part of the PNA is finding out what the people in our borough need from their pharmacies and how they think we could improve what's on offer.
