Finding a House on the Progress Estate, Eltham, SE9

The Progress Estate is a conservation area situated in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.  Its garden village layout and architecture that was inspired by the design ideals of the arts and crafts movement makes it an attractive place to live.   The map below names every road on the Estate other than Cornwallis Road (the short road that runs east to west between Arsenal and Granby Roads) and Franklin Passage, a non-vehicular road running between Dickson and Phineas Pett Roads.

Seeking a home to rent?

There are quite a few houses on our Estate that are rented privately.   Unfortunately we do not have a list of owners’ names so suggest you contact the local estate agents, many of whom have letting departments.

Seeking social housing?

About 500 houses on the Estate are owned by The Hyde Group.   They provide social housing to residents who have successfully bid for them through Greenwich Homes, the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s choice-based lettings scheme.

More information about Greenwich Homes is available on-line at:
