Pop Brixton founder Carl Turner has submitted plans for a new recycled shipping container scheme for restaurants, retailers and local enterprises in Woolwich, south east London.

Named Wool Yard, the development will include 32 containers in the 0.14 acre brownfield car park site opposite Lidl on Creton Street.

Around 40% of the space will be for small scale food and beverage operators who will locate around a central courtyard with seating areas at ground floor level, with the rest reserved for co-working spaces and studios for local businesses and entrepreneurs,

Turner, founder and director of Carl Turner Architects said: “Wool Yard will bring much needed affordable work and leisure space to the centre of Woolwich which we hope will transform a disused site into a hub of creative activity and enterprise for the benefit of the community.

Turner’s firm designed and curated Pop Brixton with Lambeth Council. The temporary space opened in May 2015 and has provided a launchpad for a number of brands including new wave Indian restaurant Kricket​.

Pop Brixton is currently home to around 15 restaurants including Duck Duck Goose​, Smoke & Salt​ and Made of Dough.
