If you want to find out more about the plans to redevelop Charlton’s riverside industrial land, then there’s a “stakeholder forum” on Wednesday 1 February at 7.30pm at the Old Library in Charlton House.
Greenwich Council deputy leader Danny Thorpe will be updating attendees on the borough’s slow progress on rewriting the Charlton Riverside Masterplan, which is running a year late and is widely believed to be ditching plans for it to follow the “principles of a garden city” in favour of riverside tower blocks.
Already, one development has already come forward, with Rockwell Estates proposing a 28-storey tower block in Anchor & Hope Lane at an exhibition late last year. A planning application is expected soon, and the scheme could be complete by 2021.
(Apologies for the short notice, we’ve only just been told about this ourselves…)
