Plans for more housing development on Charlton Riverside have moved forward with one of the area’s biggest industrial concerns putting in a planning application to move to Belvedere.
Westminster Waste, which operates the old Maybanks recycling plant by the Thames Barrier, has applied to Bexley Council to build a new site in Mulberry Way, Belvedere.
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.
There are currently three 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; and another 500 new homes from developer U+I on the old Siemens cable factory site, a development it called Faraday Works.
