They will go on display at Compressor House, Royal Docks, Dockside Road, Silvertown for three days from February 6.

Developer ABP’s vision is to create a vibrant hub for people to work and live and a new gateway to Europe for businesses from Asia. The proposals will also create up to 20,000 new jobs, a significant number of which will be available to local people.

For the first time, local people will be able to enjoy around 1km of waterfront, along with three new public squares, a dockside promenade and green links through the site.

Chairman of ABP, Xu Weiping, said: “These proposals are incredibly exciting and I am very proud that my company ABP is driving them forward. We look forward to meeting local people at the event and hearing their feedback on our plans.”

A planning application for the whole site and a detailed application for Phase 1 of the scheme will be submitted in Spring 2014. Subject to planning approval, construction could begin as early as 2015, with Phase 1 set for completion in 2018.

The exhibition will be open on February 6 from 2pm to 9pm, February 7 from 10am to 4pm February 8 from 10am to 4pm

The proposals can also be viewed on the community consultation website at
