More consultation for Fulham Riverside

fulham wharf plansThe second round of public consultation on proposals for the disused industrial land on a riverside stretch of Sands End, from Carnwath Road to Imperial Wharf, is now open.

The South Fulham Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was first consulted on last spring and is now out to consultation again after a series of changes, including removing the re-routing of traffic along William Morris Way.

The draft SPD outlines how the area could accommodate up to 4,000 new homes and jobs over the next 20 years, while increasing the use of the river and riverside for leisure, transport, education and riverside moorings.

The latest consultation comes despite Thames Water’s controversial ‘super sewer’ plans which threaten to derail one part of the SPD – a possible residential led mixed-use scheme on Carnwath Road – for up to 10 years.

The council is currently considering a legal challenge to the Thames Tunnel plans, which would occupy an area the size of six football pitches for heavy digging work during construction.
