SPL advised Christ Church Tabernacle International (CCTI) in respect of their proposals to use the former Gala Bingo in Woolwich Town Centre as a place of worship for a congregation of c.1,500.



Our Involvement

The Grade II* Listed building had been identified by LB Greenwich in a Supplementary Planning Document (published after an application for the Change of Use had been submitted) for a cinema/leisure use. SPL successfully demonstrated that a cinema would not be viable and would have a significant detrimental impact on the interior of the listed building.

An appeal was submitted to protect CCTI’s position, however, was withdrawn following negotiation with LB Greenwich and subsequent approval of planning permission.
