Swan Wharf is at the eastern end of Dace Road next to Old Ford Locks. The wharf, with its three existing buildings, was included in the very small Fish Island Conservation Area designated by Tower Hamlets Council in 2008. As you know, this conservation area was extended and renamed by the London Legacy Development Corporation; and now includes the River Lea and Old Ford Locks next to Swan Wharf, making it the most attractive part of the extended conservation area.
The East End Waterway Group was therefore looking forward to a conservation-led approach to the regeneration of Swan Wharf. To help achieve this, a letter of objection to the planning application for Swan Wharf has been written and sent to the LLDC, on behalf of EEWG.
The letter will only count as one objection so please read the letter and online petition, and sign the petition as soon as possible and encourage others to do so. See the full planning application 14/00262/FUL here
The deadline for comments is 31 August 2014, but we understand that letters and petitions will be received by LLDC until 12 September 2014.
