An industrial harbour and promenade revealing the working heritage of the Thames.
Character: Urban/industrial, open.
Function: Education, walking/jogging/cycling, play, informal recreation, long distance river viewing, SuDS, ecological protection, boat moorings and repair facilities.
The harbour and promenade could be developed as a linear waterside park, transforming a derelict harbour into a vibrant waterfront.
These spaces will be delivered to support the ambitions of the London Port Authority’s ‘Vision for Tidal Thames’, transforming the harbour with apartments, eateries, waterside business space and community uses to create a vibrant waterside leisure destination for residents and visitors.
The promenade will maintain its industrial character by retaining historical features and materials and commanding dynamic views of this busy part of the Thames.
