Public Consultation

Following our consultation with local residents and community groups at the end of 2016, Western Riverside Waste Authority has now submitted a planning application to Wandsworth Council to allow for the temporary period of planning permission (for a new road-based recycling transfer station) to be extended until 2032.

The essential redevelopment of our Cringle Dock Waste Transfer Station (in SW8) requires the removal of the road-based Bulk Bays in order to keep the Waste Transfer Station operational whilst the new facility is being built. The Bulk Bay operation will move to Feathers Wharf and, for environmental as well as financial reasons, it is not sensible to then rebuild this operation at Cringle Dock. If Cringle Dock is not financially viable we will not be able to carry out the works at Feathers Wharf which would mean the new landscaping and riverside walk could not be provided. Therefore we are seeking to extend the permission at Feathers Wharf until 2032, by which time we will have completed a re-tendering exercise for our future long term operations.
