Save the Art Deco Co-Op in Powis Street, Woolwich
The Art Deco Co-Op on Powis Street, Woolwich is a well-loved local landmark, sadly earmarked for demolition by Greenwich Council, despite recommendations by English Heritage that it is a vital part of the townscape and worth preserving. The building does not meet criteria for listing, but it is a fine example of art deco and is a vital part of the west end of Powis Street, which includes other buildings of the period that are occupied and thus safe. The Co-Op is a vital part of Woolwich's "Art Deco Quarter" and the shell, at least, should be preserved and recycled in the planned Woolwich Triangle development rather than demolished. Greenwich Council have now assured me that the petition will be included in the planning decision. Now I know this I will also be starting a paper petition.
