The application is to create a new river edge along the entire 1,065m frontage of the proposed Thames Side West development, which will involve the installation of a new sheet piled wall, new outfalls and scour protection, creation of an intertidal planting area and other associated works. These works are part of a residential led mixed-use development proposal comprising the erection of new buildings ranging from 16 to 26 storeys to provide up to 5,000 residential units alongside ancillary residential facilities, flexible employment workspace, flexible retail floorspace, community and leisure floorspace, new public open space, new pedestrian and vehicle routes, accesses and amenity areas and basement level car park with integral servicing areas. The site is bounded to the east by the Siemens Crystal Building and the Royal Victoria Docks, the River Thames to the west, Canning Town, to the north, and a collection of industrial wharves to the south.
