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.
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
