Answer for Convoys Wharf

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Convoys Wharf is a complex site. It is clearly an important focus for regeneration in Deptford and Lewisham and part of the site is also one of London's Safeguarded Wharves. It is in London's strategic interest to make use of these wharves to move cargo to and from HGVs onto the river. The current proposals need to be re-examined to get the balance of these two issues right. I am keen for my officers to work with the LB Lewisham, the landowner and local people to get a widely supported proposal that achieves this balance.
