Lovell’s Wharf in Greenwich is holding a consultation following the submitting of a new planning application.
Lovell’s Wharf is on the Greenwich peninsula just before the Thames Path reaches the Cutty Sark pub.
The plan is to extend the residential development north along the riverside to cover the existing Badcock’s Wharf boatyard which will move a little further north to Bay Wharf.
The first phase of the Lovell’s Wharf development alongside Pelton Road was as controversial as the present proposals.
The work caused confusing temporary diversions of the Thames Path .
If approval is granted by Greenwich Council for the revised plan to complete the full scheme then work will start this year and continue until 2018.
The good news is that the intention over the next four years is to keep the path by the river open almost all the time. Any closures will be notified on this website whenever possible.
As elsewhere on the peninsula, the riverside path is to be separated from the cycleway in front of Lovell’s Wharf when it embraces Granite Wharf, Badcock’s Wharf and Piper’s Wharf.
The consultation exhibition is open for a final day on Thursday 20th February at The Forum@Greenwich in Trafalgar Road from 3pm to 8pm.
