East India Dock Regeneration Concept 2007

In 2007 the Poplar Dock User Group united to explore the possibilities of developing a new marina in neighbouring East India Dock.

The demand for permanent moorings continues to grow with little or none becoming available or planned.

In response to a tender issued by Lea Valley Park Authority and Thames Gateway Development Agency inviting ideas to be presented as to the possible uses for the dock the group at Poplar developed plans for a sustainable marina and community lead green space.

The ambitious plans aimed to utilise every asset of the space to create much needed mooring spaces providing income to fund community orientated facilities including
sub-terrainean visitor centre and nature park.
