Riverside Charlton development at Herringham Quarter has start date

A new application submitted to Greenwich Council shows that the developer behind a major Charlton project aims to start in March 2023.

A timeline for construction at Herringham Quarter is included:


The overall development is split into four plots, with two seeing detailed plans and a start date in 2023, alongside river wall works.

In total all plots comprise 1,292 homes.

One plot due to commence sits directly beside the Thames, as seen below.

Other plots sit further away from the river. Heights gradually rise towards 10-floors beside the Thames.

When approved there was talk of extending the 301 bus to serve the site.

That route runs from Bexleyheath to Woolwich via Abbey Wood.

The idea is that residents will use it to reach the Elizabeth line, though I suspect that many more buses heading to the Jubilee line will be of greater interest.

The Jubilee line also requires a Zone 1-2 ticket if heading to central London, Stratford or Canary Wharf, compared to a Zone 1-4 from Woolwich.

It’ll also be a pleasant cycle along the river to North Greenwich station.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

  • It is a pleasant cycle John you’re right, but what are the plans for keeping the thames path open during consruction period? Preious developments have led to the path being closed and/or diverted away from river for very long periods. Have they put plans into motion to prevent this occurence again? My guess is that bRBG being RBG the answer is unclear, or no!

  • Does this mean the tarmac plant is closing?

    • No it’s staying open. This site is next door to the west with other plots to the south east.

  • Interested to know if there are any further plans in place to re-develop land in Westmoor street SE7?
