Have your say on new Charlton riverside conservation areas

Derrick Gardens
Atlas and Derrick Gardens would become part of a conservation area under the new plans

There’s a week left if you want to comment on Greenwich Council plans to create new conservation areas by the riverside at Charlton.

Two new areas are planned – one to protect the housing at Atlas and Derrick Gardens, the Anchor & Hope pub, Vaizeys Wharf and the Corys barge works; the other to protect areas around the Thames Barrier such as the old Victoria pub, the former Siemens works, and surviving parts of the old Woolwich Royal Dockyard.

The council also wants to locally list several buildings in the area, from the 1985 East Greenwich fire station (“an example of late 20C public sector design”) to Stones Foundry and Windrush Primary School.

The former Clancy’s pub at the end of Warspite Road is also scheduled for listing, under its original name of the Lord Howick.

It follows the publication last year of Greenwich’s masterplan for the Charlton riverside area.

You can see the full proposals and have your say on the Greenwich Council website. All comments have to be in by Wednesday 17 January.
