Update on School Streets consultation

With reference to our communication on  7 December on the Council’s School Streets proposal and having run our poll, we note only a relatively low  response rate (30%) with an equal number of residents agreeing and disagreeing to the proposal as presented. A further five residents agreed with qualifications or concerns.

Consequently the Board does not feel it is appropriate to make submissions on behalf of the entire estate as there is no representative collective view. We therefore suggest those residents who have not yet responded to Tower Hamlets to do so on an individual basis  online or via mail before the  deadline of 18 December 2020.

Schools Streets consultation – St Luke’s Primary and Canary Wharf College

You may have received a survey through the post in relation to School Streets proposal from Tower Hamlets regarding traffic restriction changes to Saunders Ness road.

Proposed School Streets changes for Saunders Ness road and surrounding area

We are aware that the demographic in the estate has changed with more young families with children attending the affected schools. A number of residents have asked if Plymouth Wharf should express a collective view, which may have more weight than individual answers.  Whilst reducing street traffic on Saunder Ness school is in principle a good idea, concerns have been expressed over the proposal, particularly on the impact on parking on our stretch of the road.

In order for PWRA to make representations on behalf of all residents, and in order to be sure to express a majority view on what might  be a controversial subject, we would like to conduct a mini-poll. Note that the Tower Hamlets consultation survey closes on 18th December, therefore we should be grateful to receive your answers by 10 December latest.

The PWRA poll (open to both shareholders and tenants) can be found here:

If no consensus is received, we will advise you so, to enable you to express your view on an individual basis before the deadline.

Carriageway resurfacing works in Seysell Street (29th June – 1st July 2020)

Tower Hamlets are planning to undertake resurfacing work on Seysell Street. The work is expected to commence on 29th June and complete 1st July. The hours of works will be between 8am and 5pm every day.

During the hours above all on-street parking bays will be closed and there will be no vehicular access.

It will still be possible to access Saunders Ness Road and Plymouth Wharf during this time using either Glenworth Avenue or Glenaffric Avenue further down.

However, those utilising on-street permit parking spaces outside Plymouth Wharf may find this busier than normal and struggle to locate a space. If this affects you then you may wish to make alternative temporary arrangements in advance. The parking regulations at Plymouth Wharf remain unchanged during this time.

Anyone wishing to discuss the carriageway works should direct these to Tower Hamlets directly and not to PWRA. The contact at Tower Hamlets for the works is jeff.aghoghogbe@towerhamlets.gov.uk

Enderby Wharf cruise terminal plans cancelled

Plans for a cruise terminal to be built across the river from Plymouth Wharf in Greenwich have finally been cancelled after several years of campaigning by the local community over fears of noise and pollution.

This will come as a relief to a number of residents that were not happy with the plans. It is not yet known what the fate of the Enderby Wharf site will be now but it’s thought that the site of the cruise terminal may now be replaced with a park with possible concessions made to developers in terms of height on residential development planned.

Morden Wharf regeneration exhibition

In March 2012, U+I acquired Morden Wharf, a former sweeteners refinery on the Greenwich Peninsula and one of the few remaining significant London riverfronts left for major regeneration.

The major riverside regeneration site is adjacent to the O2 Arena and opposite Plymouth Wharf on the other side of the river, with 500 metres of Thames riverside frontage.

For those interested, the developer of Morden Wharf will be holding an exhibition for local residents: 
– Wednesday 21 November between 4pm and 8pm at Rothbury Hall, Mauritius Road, SE10 0EF
– Saturday 24 November between 12pm and 5pm at Sherard Hall, Forum at Greenwich, Trafalgar Road, SE10 9EQ
