The Dockland Settlements were established in the 19th Century to improve welfare and recreation for the youth of dock areas. There are three Dockland Settlements centres in London, at Stratford, the Isle of Dogs and in Rotherhithe. However, their facility at Rotherhithe was worn out, no longer met current standards and was not fit for purpose.

CMA Planning worked with Family Mosaic to secure approval for a new facility, cross funded by new homes. The final scheme included 28 mixed tenure homes, in addition to the new community and sports facilities with a games pitch as well as a garden.

The Council said of the proposals, “Regeneration is about more than just building new homes, it’s about meeting the needs of the local community and enhancing local facilities. The new sports facility and the additional affordable housing stock will do that by creating new employment opportunities and getting young people involved in exciting sports programmes.”

The application was granted planning permission by the London Borough of Southwark in March 2012.
