Statement on Woolwich town centre improvement works

Tuesday 7 May 2024

The Council has been informed that Geoffrey Osborne Limited (Osborne), the contractor undertaking the Powis Street and Beresford Square public realm works, has unfortunately gone into administration.

Works have temporarily stopped, however the Council is ensuring the sites are secure, and health and safety is maintained.  We’ll be taking measures to ensure work progresses on the Beresford Square, Powis Street and Market Pavilion projects as soon as possible.

We’ve delivered letters to local residents, businesses and market traders to keep them informed, and will update them again when we have more information.
