Lovell's Wharf - New Proposals - Public Meeting

The developers of the Lovell's Wharf site have withdrawn their earlier proposals for two tower blocks, each of 30-odd storeys, plus lower-rise blocks of flats. However, they now propose to put the same number of dwellings on the site in five monolithic "slab blocks" of up to 10 storeys.

This is still far too big and dense a development in relation to the surrounding area. Once again local residents must be very concerned about the effects of this and the many other large developments in and around SE10 on the service infrastructure of the whole area: transport, roads, sewage, health and education.

The Greenwich Society is jointly hosting a public meeting with the Forum@Greenwich on Tuesday 22 November, at 7 pm at the Forum@Greenwich in Trafalgar Road. All are welcome to attend.
