The public is being invited to have a say about a major scheme to regenerate a 50-acre derelict site in the Royal Docks which could, say the developers, create 14,000 jobs.

The same development company which built East Village and the Olympic Park is behind the plans.

The Silvertown Partnership is submitting proposals to transform the derelict 50 acre-site opposite London ExCel into “Silvertown Quays”.

The new project would provide a waterside destination with homes, restaurants and commercial buildings.

Subject to gaining planning permission, the redevelopment could create 14,000 jobs and contribute £260m a year to the economy.

The Silvertown Partnership is interested in paying homage to the industrial legacy of the district and building links with the local community.

Elliot Lipton, spokesman for The Silvertown Partnership, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to create a vibrant new waterside destination for London in this historic part of the Royal Docks.

“We are keen to build on the area’s heritage of enterprise and secure a bright future for a part of London which has been neglected for too long.

“We want to work with local people to ensure Silvertown Quays becomes a vibrant neighbourhood that delivers benefits for new and existing communities and complements the other regeneration projects coming forward in East London.”

The first in a series of public consultations will be held at Britannia Village Community Centre, in Evelyn Rd, on Friday from 8am.

There is an additional consultation from 10am on Saturday.

The public can view plans and track feedback of the proposals on the company’s website at www.silvertownlondon.com.
