The Mayor of London’s office has this week given the go-ahead to build London’s first ever passenger cruise terminal in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Consent for a revised and updated cruise terminal scheme at Enderby Wharf, SE10, was approved in July 2015 by the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Planning Board. The Mayor of London’s Deputy Mayor for Planning, Sir Edward Lister, has now also given the application the go-ahead. A spokesperson for the Mayor of London said “It will provide a major boost to tourism, benefit the local economy and further contribute to London’s status as a world leading city.”
The development at Enderby Wharf will include a commercial cruise liner terminal – expected to be up and running by 2017 – and a total of 1,154 new homes.
