Councillors have backed plans for new homes next to Trafalgar Quarters in Greenwich.
Landowners, Greenwich Hospital, put forward an application to build four two bedroom town houses and a block of four flats.
The homes will be built on land which is currently used as a car park at the junction of Old Woolwich Road and Eastney Street.
The application came before the local planning committee in May but was deferred pending the production of CGI demonstrating 3D views of the development. Those images were provided at last night's meeting and the scheme has been given the go-ahead.
The Grade-II listed Trafalgar Quarters building is also owned by Greenwich Hospital and provides sheltered accommodation.
