Hyde Group Granted Planning Permission To Renew Communal Fencing

Press Release no: 2014/08  
  29 December 2014

Keith Billinghurst
We are delighted to announce that Royal Greenwich have granted Hyde Group planning permission to replace all the fencing fronting odd nos. 123-161 Well Hall Road. The only material condition attaching to the Grant is that a sample of the hardwood timber finished with the stain Hyde proposes using has to be submitted to Royal Greenwich for approval prior to work commencing. We understand the timber will be oak. Hyde plan to start work in the current financial year.

Keith Billinghurst, Progress Residents Association committee member, said ‘This is great news for both the people whose homes face this fencing and for our Estate as a whole. We have been working on this issue for three years and are delighted the repairs will be completed during our centenary year. Well Hall Road is our major thoroughfare and bus route so probably more people travel up and down it than any other road on the Estate’.

Note for Editors:

Originally named the Well Hall Estate, The Progress Estate was built in 1915 to provide housing for the many additional workers the Woolwich Arsenal needed to manufacture the armaments required by the services during the First World War.   Conservation Area status was granted in 1975, in recognition of its unique architectural character.
