About Charlton
Conversations

Charlton Conversations is a process to discuss a number of development sites within the Charlton Riverside regeneration area. The first to come forward are the Anchor & Hope Lane sites, which aim to create a place for families with a new public park, new homes that are affordable across a variety of tenures and supporting facilities. Please click here for a location map.

The wider Charlton Riverside area is a strategic part of London – identified as one of the Mayor’s ‘Opportunity Areas’ and is designated in the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Core Strategy as a ‘Strategic Development Location’. The area provides an opportunity to create a vibrant mixed use urban quarter to help meet London-wide needs for new homes, whilst benefiting from a mix of uses, rationalising business / retail and providing the supporting infrastructure to create a balanced place to live, work and enjoy.

The Anchor and Hope Lane sites are part of this transformation and in December 2016 Rockwell submitted a planning application to the Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG). Please click here for an overview of the consultation and for information on the Statutory Consultation taking place in January and February 2017.

The area’s heritage

The New Charlton riverside area has been a significant industrial area since Victorian times, historically known for glass, ropemaking and mineral extraction industries. Since the 1960s the area has suffered effects of industrial decline with many of the original factories closing, but in more recent years heavy industries such as aggregates have prevailed. This includes the major facility at Angerstein Wharf, which has safeguarded wharf status in the London Plan along with Murphy’s Wharf and Riverside Wharf.

In the wider area, manufacturing has been predominantly replaced with light industry, wholesale and large-scale retail.
The area is in a rapidly evolving part of London and planning policy has identified significant potential to become a new and active piece of London’s unique waterfront. The intention is that the proposals should integrate with the wider area and providing a more balanced mix of uses and active streets – yet respecting links to the area’s working, industrial and creative heritage.

Consultation process

Between September and December 2016 we carried out community consultation on the emerging plans for the Anchor & Hope Lane sites. Rockwell appointed community engagement specialists Soundings to help facilitate discussions, ensuring that local views can be considered as the plans develop.

Please click here to download the Statement of Community involvement. This is a record of the consultation process, community feedback provided and Rockwell’s responses to key issues.

Following submission of the planning application, the Royal Borough of Greenwich is carrying out Statutory Consultation on the application for a six week period from 11 January 2017, please click here to visit the Council’s website for full details and to view all the planning application documents.

We will continue to keep in touch as the project progresses and there will be more information on the phase 2 sites later in 2017. Please let us know if you would like to register your interest and receive future updates directly.
