England E1 6FQ, United Kingdom

Created By: SE1 Stories


Alternative proposals were needed to resist the ‘big money’ development schemes promoted by Southwark Council’s ‘Thameside Strategy Plan’ at Hay’s Wharf and Bankside.

NSCDG, after door-to-door consultation, published a ‘Residents’ Plan for Bankside’ which identified sites which should be developed for council housing and community facilities.

The Greater London Council (GLC) changed its policy emphasis in 1975, supporting NSCDG’s call for more council homes on the South Bank.
