£220m London wharf homes scheme approved

Planners have given the thumbs up to a scheme to build 285 flats in blocks next to protected wharves near Wandsworth Bridge in London.

Developer Henley Investment Management can now demolish warehouse buildings on the site to make way for the mixed-used scheme of seven buildings rising from 6-20 storeys.

As part of the wider works to the site, the developer plans to introduce a new jetty for waterborne cargo, and construct a new section of Thames Path Wandsworth Bridge to Fulham Wharf for the first time.

The site is located between Wandsworth Bridge and a Cemex batching plant
