STAMP summer update
Our last STAMP meeting was on 9 March, shortly before lockdown began. Like all organisations, we have had to adapt what we do and we have been unable to meet face to face. There has been some progress on projects in Shad Thames, but things are moving more slowly than previously.
At the Shad Thames Pumping Station the internal work is expected to complete before the end of the year, and the refurbishment of St Saviours Dock footbridge is nearing completion. We have also been working virtually with Southwark Council to move forward on the Shad Thames Streets Project and our Shad Thames Business Network feasibility study has been rescheduled for September.
In addition there are two tangible developments in the area. The first is an ambitious initiative to re-imagine Butler’s Wharf jetty.
The newly-formed Butler’s Wharf Riverside Trust, with funding from Southwark Council, has joined forces with the London Festival of Architecture to launch a design competition. Full details of this can be seen here
Also work on TBC (Tower Bridge Court), at 224-226 Tower Bridge Road with frontage on Horselydown Lane, has now begun and is scheduled to finish in 2022. The refurbishment aims to turn this into one of the greenest and healthiest buildings in London. Below is an image of the current building and you can see details of the changes planned at https://www.tbc.london/.
Meanwhile the contractors Willmott Dixon have prepared an online questionnaire which local residents are invited to complete via this link https://bit.ly/2Eh2MPg
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?
