Woolwich Estates

The Woolwich Estates regeneration project consists of the demolition and redevelopment of three estates in Woolwich to build over 1,500 new homes. The three estates are:

  • Connaught
  • Morris Walk
  • Maryon Road and Maryon Grove

The Woolwich Estates project overview and the Woolwich Estates consultation and involvement structure provide background information about the project.

Trinity Walk (formerly Connaught)

Connaught Estate was demolished in 2016 to make way for over 650 new properties, over 230 of them are affordable housing.

Phase 1 is complete and Phases 2 and 3 are nearing completion.

To find out about Shared Ownership at Trinity Walk, contact PA Housing.

Morris Walk South

Demolition of all structures within Morris Walk South is now complete. View images of the demolition progress.

The Maryon Road junction with Woodhill will be closed so that the road can be used for construction traffic. The footbridge is closed, and a diversion is in place for pedestrians and cyclists.

Morris Walk North

Demolition is complete on Harden Court and Albion Court. Demolition of Viking and Fredrick house will commence when all properties are vacant.

Maryon Grove and Maryon Road

Maryon Road estate will be the last of the three estates to be demolished and replaced.  

The Council has now given PA Housing formal notice that vacant possession of the Maryon Grove/Road Estate is required. This was in agreement with PA Housing and mainly due to the condition of the properties.  

To enable the Council to do this, PA Housing has written to all its households to give official notice of intended vacant possession.  

If you are a tenant of PA Housing and you’ve found a property and need help with a deposit or rent in advance, please contact:

PA Housing

  • A landlord must serve a notice advising you that it is their intention to formally end your tenancy. This is called a ‘notice seeking possession’. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the notice period is 6 months.

  • It is a legal requirement to provide tenants with the right documents giving information about the property and their rights and responsibilities as a renter. This includes a valid gas safety certificate (CP12 certificate) if there is a gas installation in the property, an energy performance certificate (EPC), and the version of the ‘How to Rent’ guide which was most up to date when your contract started or was renewed..

  • You won’t have to leave your home straight away, but we are giving you notice that you are required to give vacant possession of the property you are currently renting. This notice is for a 6-month period.

  • Simply put, 'vacant possession’ means the property must be empty on the day that notice period comes to an end. You will need to have cleared the property of all of your belongings and returned the keys to PA Housing.

  • PA Housing will be sending out further updates over the next couple of weeks and will give you the opportunity to meet with its housing staff via an online video call. The Royal Borough of Greenwich’s housing team will also be making contact with you to discuss your option for moving.

  • Should you have any further questions please contact PA Housing on 0300 123 2221 and select option 5 for the Housing Hub. Alternatively, you can also speak to the Council on 0208 921 2840 who may be able to offer support with rehousing.
