Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Aim of scheme:
- enhancement of tidal defences
- conservation enhancements
- recreation provision
Work undertaken:
- cleaning up of existing foreshore
- creation of new shingle beach
- attachment of horizontal and vertical timbers to promote algal growth
- reed planting in Bullhead dock
- reducing size of jetty increasing direct light to the foreshore The site is adjacent to the River Thames in Rotherhithe. Bellamys Wharf and Bullhead Dock were a sand and gravel unloading facility with a high jetty.
The initial proposal was to infill both docks, however only a small encroachment was allowed to enable the rebuilding of a new river wall at the other dock. Concept ideas being scoped 2009-2010 but constraints include funding and public perception
