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
