STAMP summer update
STAMP summer update
Although we have been unable to meet face to face since March 2020 as a result of COVID, there has been progress on several projects in Shad Thames.
Local stakeholders have been working with Southwark Council to replace street lighting throughout the Shad Thames area and this initiative has been substantially completed. We are also expecting to move forward with Phase 2 of the Shad Thames Business Network feasibility study before the end of the summer. In addition, work on the long-running project at Shad Thames Pumping Station should be completed by the autumn and repair of the St Saviours Dock footbridge is scheduled to finish by October 2021.
Butler’s Wharf Riverside Trust
Butler’s Wharf Riverside Trust continues their excellent work to improve the Butler’s Wharf Jetty. As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture, they held several events to showcase The Tide Line, the winner of a design competition last year. An exhibition of the project can be seen in the glass case on the jetty throughout the summer.
More details of the Trust’s work and their plans can be found on their website
TBC (Tower Bridge Court), at 224-226 Tower Bridge Road
Redevelopment of Tower Bridge Court (with frontage on both Tower Bridge Road and Horselydown Lane) was scheduled to begin in autumn 2020 but this was delayed due to COVID. Work is now expected to start during the summer.
Below are images of the current building and the proposed redevelopment for which planning permission has been granted.
22 Shad Thames, previously the Conran building
22 Shad Thames, which was the home of Conran offices until the end of 2020, has been sold and the new owners are planning a refurbishment.
In June 2021 Historic England confirmed that the building was granted Grade II listed status. The new owners are now working on developing plans which reflect this.
Shad Thames Facebook
STAMP and STRA (Shad Thames Residents’ Association) have jointly set up a Facebook group called “Our Shad Thames”. If you are a Facebook user and live or work locally, why not join the group and be part of the conversation?
