South Dock Marina project unveiled

By Marco Cillario - Fri 30 September 2016, 12:42 pm

Southwark Council presented new proposals for the redevelopment of the South Dock Marina at a public consultation on 19 September 2016.

Proposed view from Rope Street.

The plan, updated since a previous consultation in January, would deliver 193 homes in five buildings between three and seven storeys and a 28-floor tower.

St George’s Square would be extended to become a riverside urban park. A new restaurant, cafe and store would open on site. Improvements are proposed for the Plough Way roundabout and the Thames footpath.

The marina would also be improved, with modernised facilities for berth holders, a new community space with a roof terrace and a business and enterprise hub.

The redevelopment would also address the impact on residents of boatyard noise, dust and fumes.

The council is now assessing the feedback received, with a view to drafting a planning application in late 2016.
