Hyde Housing to unveil fourth Charlton Riverside housing scheme

Maybank Wharf
Hyde bought Maybank Wharf last year

Housing association Hyde Group is to hold an exhibition next month on plans to build new homes on Charlton Riverside – the fourth scheme for the area to come forward in recent years.

Last month, The Charlton Champion reported how the recycling firm Westminster Waste was preparing to leave Maybank Wharf for Belvedere after 50 years of waste paper processing on the site.

Now Hyde is coming forward with plans to redevelop the land plus three other nearby plots stretching away from the Thames.

“We are proposing to redevelop this important site to deliver much-needed new homes of varying size, mix and tenure, including a minimum of 40% affordable housing,” Hyde says in a flyer distributed to residents. It does not elaborate on what “affordable” means.

“Our proposals also include the creation of new green space to improve access to the riverside, alongside commercial and retail space.”

The exhibition is at the Charlton side of Windrush Primary School on Thursday 9 May from 4.30pm to 8.00pm, and Saturday 11 May from 10am to 2pm. (Hopefully by then Hyde and its representatives K&A Consulting will have realised the school is not in “East Greenwich”, as claimed on the flyer.)

Residents who cannot make the exhibition but would like to know more are asked to email charltonriverside[at]kandaconsulting.co.uk or call 020 3900 3676.

The three other development schemes for the Charlton Riverside going through, or about to go through planning:

  • the Rockwell scheme for 771 homes at Anchor & Hope Lane was refused first by Greenwich Council last summer, then by the Mayor of London in January;
  • 500 homes are planned by developer Komoto at what it calls Flint Glass Wharf, the former Johnsen and Jorgensen glassworks which closed in 1981;
  • Another 500 new homes from developer U+I on the old Siemens cable factory site, a development it calls Faraday Works.
