Our regular Stakeholder Group meeting was hosted by Chestertons on Tower Bridge Road. As always we had a good turn-out with attendees including local residents and local businesses; Anood Al-Samerai, one of three elected Riverside councillors; representatives from Thames Water and from traffic study consultants Steer Davies Gleave; and Richard Wells from Southwark Council Highways.
Our full agenda covered updates on the Shad Thames traffic study and the streets project; the Shad Thames Pumping Station works coming up; on-going construction of The Dixon Hotel (on the former Tooley St Magistrates Court site); and refurbishment of Courage Yard (formerly Tower Bridge Piazza). We also heard from the Butlers Wharf Jetty working group with ideas for much-needed improvements on the riverside walkway, and were given details about the 5 October community conversation regarding St Saviour’s Dock footbridge. Other topics included the ex-Design Museum site (now owned by Zaha Hadid Foundation); greening initiatives; our joint Placemarks Project with Team London Bridge and BSAP (Bermondsey Street Area Partnership); and the STAMP Management Plan. We also a chance to admire the update of the Shad Thames Trail, beautifully designed by local business Hudson Fuggle – you can download a copy on the Resources page below.
Our Stakeholder Group continues to grow as more local residents and businesses get involved. Through the valuable contributions of local stakeholders, and our constructive and collaborative approach, we are creating an effective forum through which to make a real difference in the area.
