Plan in for £500m London beds and sheds docks scheme

Developer Regal London has submitted a revised planning application for a mixed-use development at Orchard Wharf in London Docklands.

The scheme next to the mouth of the River Lea on the northside of the Thames will comprise a safeguarded wharf and logistic centre, over 200 affordable flats and nearly accomodation for 1,400 students.

Regal also proposes a ground floor cafe and community hub, 7,400m² of landscaped space.

Regal has now teamed up with Thames Clippers Logistics to use the proposed warehouse and reactivated wharf to develop a high speed light river freight logistics service transporting parcels and goods to central London.

Steve Harrington, Planning Director at Regal said: “Orchard Wharf has been a real labour of love, and we are delighted to present our wider vision to deliver a new riverside neighbourhood with significant student and affordable housing, relieving the pressures on the housing stock in Tower Hamlets – all alongside a reactivated working wharf.

“Regal, with Thames Clipper Logistics, will play a key part in further bringing the River Thames into use to support a more sustainable London for the future.”

Regal has nearly 2,000 consented beds over two locations – Brent and Southwark, with over 2,000 more in the pipeline in Tower Hamlets and Camden.
