Greenwich residents complain as Morden Wharf developer starts helicopter trips to site
Residents in Greenwich have complained after staff at developer U&I arrived by helicopter to visit the Morden Wharf site.
The helicopter landed at 7am before landing again later in the day. According to residents they have permission to fly 28 days a year.
No expense spared it would seem to bring staff to the site.
But yesterday U&I announced cuts to 13 per cent of its workforce to save £33 million. That can’t help the chopper budget – can it?
Maybe they will also no longer be lead sponsor for Greenwich Council award ceremonies.
I’ve previously covered how part of the Morden Wharf site was used as a bus garage for two years without planning permission. Given high levels of traffic and pollution in the area it was quite the oversight. As the post from 2019 stated, how can a major site comprising 125 buses, staff car parking, engineering facilities and more avoided a planning application for so long?
Last week I looked at U&I’s application for 1,500 homes at Morden Wharf. U&I have owned the land for many years before applying for permission.
