Greenwich Millennium Village, a joint venture between Countryside and Taylor Wimpey in association with the Mayor of London, is one of the most exciting and innovative new residential neighbourhoods in Europe. Since the first residents moved in more than fifteen years ago, it has evolved into a thriving and established community with an array of amenities and facilities on its doorstep. GMV features a central Village Square and is surrounded by a huge amount of open green space, including an on-site four-acre ecology park with two lakes, the large Southern Park and a new eco play area.

Peter Willis, Director of GMV Limited comments: “We are delighted to have welcomed James Murray, the Deputy Mayor, to GMV, to celebrate 20 years since the purchase of the site. Over that time, Greenwich Millennium Village has evolved into a vibrant place to live, work and socialise, and is home to a genuinely flourishing community. This achievement is evident due to number of loyal residents, who have over the years moved with the development, as it has grown.

“GMV is a truly unique project which has always strived to be more than just another large urban regeneration scheme. The development has an established strong community feel, with residents who care about their homes and the surrounding environment. With stunning views and fantastic amenities right on the doorstep, Greenwich Millennium Village has matured into a desirable neighbourhood with a reputation for high quality homes in a sustainable setting.”

The Deputy Mayor and guests were taken on a tour of the Überhaus show home as well as the village square, ecology park at GMV and were updated on the progress of the development. On his visit, James Murray, the Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development said: “It was a pleasure to visit this exciting residential development which is delivering much needed new homes for Londoners and impressive new facilities for all the Greenwich community and visitors to enjoy.”
