Petition launched against Calders Wharf scheme
Campaigners have launched a petition in a bid to stop a luxury development being built next to Island Gardens.
Proposals for the Calders Wharf scheme on the south of the Isle of Dogs were accepted by Tower Hamlets Council's planning committee earlier this month.
But those against the scheme are refusing to give in and have starting a petition urging the Government to reverse the decision.
It states: "Our Grade II listed park is again under threat with the granting of planning permission to tear down the adjacent Calders Wharf Community Centre and erect a four storey block of flats together with the boundary wall which belongs to the park and acts as the buffer zone to the Greenwich World Heritage Site and covered by covenants."
Campaigners argue the development would spoil the park's natural beauty.
