Drop-in sessions in May on council's regeneration plans
Hammersmith and Fulham Council is holding a series of drop-in sessions to allow local people to view and comment on its proposals for South Fulham Riverside.
The sessions are on:
Tuesday May 3 from 10.30am to 3.30pm and
Wednesday May 4 from 5pm to 9pm at The Wharf Rooms, Imperial Road.
The council says now and over the next 20 years, developers are expected to come forward with proposals to transform disused industrial land in a riverside stretch of Sands End stretching Fulham from Carnwath Road to Imperial Wharf.
The Council engaged the Princes Foundation to help work with Fulham residents so council planners can produce guidelines that will shape any future development in the area.
A draft set of guidelines, the South Fulham Riverside Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), have now been produced for residents to comment on between now and May 20.
Councillor Nick Botteriil, Deputy Leader of H&F Council and Cabinet Member for Environment said: “It is absolutely vital we involve residents in the planning process from the earliest possible stage. We were delighted to work with the Princes Foundation to ensure residents had a big part to play in helping to shape our evolving planning framework for South Fulham Riverside.”
South Fulham Riverside has been designated as a regeneration area by the council, meaning it is a site capable of accommodating a number of new homes and jobs.
The Princes Trust held workshops with residents and interested groups to draw up a series of principles to help guide all future development.
The council says these principles include:
As well as attending the drop-in sessions, residents can give their views on the scheme via email to SouthFulhamRiversideSPD@lbhf.gov.uk.
