Historic Greenwich hall could face wrecking ball

  • Comment
Contentious plans have emerged to bulldoze large parts of an historic market hall in the heart of Greenwich - one of London's most important World Heritage Sites.

It is understood Hopkins Architects is behind the scheme to demolish key elements of Greenwich Market and replace it with a mixed-used development around a central courtyard.

Suprisingly only the main columned-entrance to the much-loved market hall is listed - although surrounding buildings are protected.

At the moment markets are held on just three days a week and it is believed the current landowners, the charity Greenwich Hospital, wants to make more use of the site.

A planning application could be submitted as early as June.
