Southwark’s planning committee has given the green light to plans to extend the Edward III’s Rotherhithe Conservation Area to include all of Bermondsey Wall East.

The council consulted local residents on the proposed extension two and a half years ago but nothing further happened until this summer when Labour and Liberal Democrat members of Bermondsey & Rotherhithe Community Council  unanimously passed a motion calling on the planning department to take action.

Key buildings such as the former Old Justice pub (now known as the Winnicott), Angel Wharf and Corbetts Wharf will be brought into the scope of the existing conservation area which covers the area around the Edward III manor house.
