Blackwall Reach development framework jumps first hurdle

  • Comment
Tower Hamlets Council (THC) has given the green light to the Blackwall Reach draft development framework, paving the way for the south-east London area's regeneration.

Prepared by THC and English Partnerships, the framework - on which Horden Cherry Lee Architects has been working with Capita Symonds - will now provide the basis for a three-month public consultation period.

Blackwall Reach is the area bounded by East India Dock Road to the north, the Blackwall Tunnel Approach and East India Docks to the east, Aspen Way to the south and Cotton Street to the west. The area also takes in Robin Hood Gardens.

In a statement, THC said the consultation will 'gather the broadest possible range of views and aspirations from local residents and key community stakeholders on proposals in the document, which includes options to either retain or redevelop Robin Hood Gardens.'

The project website can be found at www.blackwallreach.co.uk and a 'community gathering' to discuss the proposals is planned for Saturday 20 October.
