South Dock Tower ‘consultation’ Urgent

This weekend the board learned of a ‘consultation’ on the proposed South Dock tower.

This is what the resident received from Southwark Council:


Thank you for your email earlier today.

The public consultation will take place at Canada Water Culture Space (SE16 7AR) on Monday 19th September from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.

Leaflets are being delivered this weekend. I’ve just checked the web site and the information is now there but I’ll get a few layout changes organised for Monday, so it is clearer.

The timetable for the evening is:

5.30pm to 7pm: Drop in exhibition with new proposals

7pm to 8.30pm Presentation and Q&A session with Councillor Mark Williams. I will also be there supported by our architects etc so we can answer all questions.

If you would like to attend to the presentation, you can also register your interest now by contacting John Kelly

Thank you for interest in this proposal and we will look forward to seeing you on the 19th September.

The manner and timing of this round of consultation indicate Southwark Council’s attitude. Everything we have seen so far suggests that they will still be proposing to build a tower of 20+ storeys at the river end of South Dock. It is in your interest to find out at first hand what is now proposed, and to comment to the Council. If you are not able to attend but want to be kept in touch, or if you are concerned, please take a look at the Save Our Boatyard Facebook page: This is a well-organised community group spanning boat-owners and local residents of all kinds, including a number of Baltic Quay owners, which has raised an initial fighting fund of several thousand pounds.

12-9-16 We have now received a copy of the official invitation, click here: SouthDock exhibition to download it.
