Carter Jonas is advising Hyde Housing on the redevelopment of the 4.21 ha site, comprising five parcels of land, within Charlton Riverside Opportunity Area in the London Borough of Greenwich. The land has historically been used for industrial purposes and Hyde Housing’s proposals are looking to assist with managing change to a range of compatible uses in the opportunity area.
Our planning team were involved in pre-application discussions with the Council, the GLA, and TfL, and have led Hyde Housing through the planning process, including advising on challenging issues such as site accessibility, the safeguarding of existing wharfs, the re-provision and/or relocation of existing tenants on site, and enhancement of their affordable housing offer.
Our professionals have prepared and submitted a hybrid planning application comprising a residential-led mixed-use scheme for up to circa. 1,300 units along with flexible employment, retail, community, and leisure floorspace, and associated infrastructure, landscaping, and public realm. The proposed development seeks to meet the GLA’s strategic policies by targeting the delivery of 50% affordable housing provision across the site (including London Shared Ownership and London Affordable Rent).
