Plans for Wool Yard in Woolwich

Date Published 29 August 2017

The founder of market and venue Pop Brixton is planning a replica of his enterprise set in shipping containers in Woolwich.

Carl Turner Architects has lodged plans with Greenwich council to use 32 shipping containers on a vacant car park opposite Lidl supermarket in Woolwich, for a project called Wool Yard. The plan is to develop `a dynamic community of retailers, restaurants and local enterprises`.

The area which is subject to planning permission, will also include space that can be used as shared offices and studios for start-ups.

Turner said the development `will bring much-needed affordable work and leisure space to the centre of Woolwich, which we hope will transform a disused site into a hub of creative activity and enterprise for the benefit of the community`.
