Our Commitment

From Day One

From the very beginning of The Movement, we’ve been commited to listening to the views of people who will be using the facilities on-site. Back in November 2010, before we submitted our planning submission, we came and talked to you about our proposals and what you thought about the scheme. Around 150 of you came to talk to us and enjoyed a cup of coffee too.

During the consultation Cycles UK were on hand to fix bikes that people had used to commute to Greenwich Station. Our ambition was that The Movement will have a bike shop which would offer this service so we thought we would give people a taster of what they could expect from the development.

The overall response from the local community to our proposals was very positive. In response to some comments, we completely redesigned the hotel to make it more sympathetic to the adjacent listed buildings on Greenwich High Road. We also incorporated a convenience store and a nursery.

Throughout construction we’ve been holding quarterly community liaison meetings at local venues. The meetings are designed to give the latest on The Movement and to talk to people who are involved with the development of the scheme. We will advertise the details of the next residents’ liason meeting here soon.

You can register to be informed about the next meeting by calling or emailing.lease let us Call us on 0800 319 6079 or email: contact@themovementgreenwich.com
