Now Hyde is to hold an exhibition on Thursday 11 July (4-8pm) and Saturday 13 July (10am-2pm) about its plans. It says it plans:
Circa 1,250 new homes, with a target or delivering 50% of homes as affordable (it does not elaborate on what “affordable” means)
The provision of new commercial space, including maker, retail and wider employment uses
Delivery of new pedestrian and cycling routes and a comprehensive programme of public realm improvements
The opening up and activation of the riverfront so it can be enjoyed by local people
The documents filed to Greenwich Council’s planning team in May state that the blocks will be between one and 10 storeys tall, and that it hopes to begin eight years of construction next year, starting from the river and moving inland.
The exhibition will be at St Richard’s Church Centre, 40 Sundorne Road SE7 7PP. Coincidentally, it will be held on the same days as the exhibition on the Faraday Works scheme on the old Siemens site the other side of the Thames Barrier, hosted by developer U+I.
As well as the Hyde and U+I schemes, two other major schemes are at different stages in the planning process.
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; we can expect to hear this month whether Rockwell will appeal to the Planning Inspectorate
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:
Hyde has recently begun the early stages of consultation about its plans for the site, recently holding a meeting for community groups to discuss the scheme. As well as Maybank Wharf, it has also bought the Tarmac ashpalt plant and mixed industrial units along New Lyndenburg Street.
Interesting morning with Hyde Housing and community looking at their proposals for Charlton Riverside. Good to see lessons being learnt from the Rockwell proposals. Positive consultation in fairness pic.twitter.com/1JC18V8HRA
