Convoys Wharf Exhibition

Having told us in July 2012 that they would be back in September, Hutchison Whampoa finally return tomorrow (Thursday 28 Feb 2013) and Saturday 2 Mar 2013 to tell us what they are proposing for the former Royal Dockyard site.

The rumour machine tells me that Lewisham, unlike some neighbouring boroughs, have realised that changes to business rates made by the coalition government mean they cannot afford to keep losing employment land to residential development. Whatever is on display in the coming days, I suspect a continuing stand off between landowner and local planning authority.
