Design

We think what is missing is good design. Guiding this we have been advised by  some world-class professionals including Paul Zara (Senior Consultant, Conran Architects), Charlotte Harris, (Director, Harris Bugg Studio), Frances Christie (Landscape architect, REMAPP Architects & lecturer Kingston University), Jonathon Gittins,  (Associate Director, Atelier Ten Architects & Illuminated River) and Anna Versteeg, (Ivanov Versteeg Architects & Hermitage Moorings). 

Using feedback from our survey and ongoing local consultation, we want to discuss design ideas at our public meeting on 24th October 2019, 6.30pm at The Dixon Hotel, Tooley Street. We welcome your input.

Steering Group

Made up of volunteer residents and local businesses, the Steering Group has grown from the bottom-up to facilitate the conversation and to take all views in to account.  We aim to balance the needs of all those involved in the jetty, including local stakeholders and visitors. We welcome new volunteers.

We are registered members of Community Southwark (https://communitysouthwark.org)

Founding Trustees

Sir Terence Conran
Dr Emma Sanderson-Nash
Kathleen Ehrlich
Councillor Hamish McCallum

Local residents, Emma Sanderson-Nash and Kathleen Ehrlich, campaigned within Shad Thames Area Management Partnership (STAMP) and Shad Thames Residents Association (STRA) to improve the Riverfront from St Saviour's Dock footbridge, to Butler's Wharf Chop House, known as 'the jetty'. They were supported throughout by Riverside Ward Councillors, including barrister Hamish McCallum. Their efforts were given a huge boost when they were joined by Sir Terence Conran, whose original vision led to the regeneration at Butler's Wharf, and he completes the Founding Trustees. These four reflect a combination of the interests of residents, local businesses, the wider Southwark community and global design expertise.
