Developer Aitch Group has launched a consultation into plans for 230 new homes between Eastmoor Street and Westmoor Street on the Charlton Riverside.

With the coronavirus lockdown, it has launched a virtual exhibition of its plans, which would see 10-storey blocks built on a plot behind the current Beaumont Beds warehouse and to the west of Barrier Gardens.

It is the latest in a number of proposals for the riverside, all at varying stages in the planning process. None have yet been approved, never mind built, making imagining what these developments will be like somewhat tricky.

Elsewhere on the riverside, five major schemes are still in the works:
