Charlton Riverside formal consultation launches

Published Monday, 27 February 2017

Residents are being invited to participate in our consultation on the proposed Charlton Riverside development.

Charlton Riverside is an exciting opportunity for a mixed use neighbourhood, characterised by medium-rise development. The proposed development will continue to be an important employment area, which could add space for around 5,000 more jobs, as well as up to 7,500 new homes, schools, open space and community health facilities.

Future development could integrate modern, clean, hi-tech business and industrial with residential and community uses to create a dynamic living and working environment.

Consultation drop in sessions will also be held on the following dates where people can ask questions and make comments on the proposals:

  • Saturday 4 March: Charlton Athletic, Floyd Road, SE7 8BL from 10am to 12pm
  • Tuesday 7 March: Charlton House, Charlton Road, SE7 8RE from 1pm to 3pm
  • Tuesday 14 March: Royal Greenwich Trust School, 765 Woolwich Road, London SE7 8LJ from 7pm to 9pm
  • Wednesday 22 March: New Charlton Community Centre, 217 Maryon Road, Charlton SE7 8DB from 7.30pm to 9.30pm

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Sustainability, Councillor Danny Thorpe, said: "The proposed Charlton Riverside development respects the industrial heritage of Charlton Riverside, natural environment and local community aspirations while delivering the new homes, businesses and thousands of jobs required.

"Working with and for residents and businesses is central to making Charlton Riverside successful, which is why we are asking local people to come along to next month's meetings and have their say on our proposals."

The consultation starts on 22 February and will remain open to receiving any written or email comments by 5pm on 12 April. To give us your views, please go online to: www.royalgreenwich.gov.uk/haveyoursay
