Jade Hassan started this petition to Mayor of London/Mayor of Newham Borough and LBN

Hello thank you for taking the time to read our story. As part of an ambitious regeneration plan, recently announced by the Mayor of London and Mayor of Newham.  A considerable amount of investment in transport, arts and culture will be focused on. This will include digital connectivity, aim for business growth and more. 

The vast project is to regenerate the Albert Island Docks as part of the Mayors plan for more new homes and businesses. 

The developers are at there design stages and final tweaks in hope that there proposal will be approved by London Borough of Newham. 

We’d like the regeneration of the Albert Island Docks but we don’t want our homes to be facing a wall. The privilege that we have now can be taken away from us unfairly and ruin the value of our homes and our future. 

The 16 residential homes will be 3-4 story high and they will be approximately 13 meters away from us that is of very close proximity. So we will be facing them which will be a brick wall whilst they enjoy the river side view, unfairly taken away from us by developers. This is outrageous and should not be approved for many reasons.

We will have a loss of light, that will cause depression and claustrophobia if we have to draw out curtains to protect our privacy. Then this also will create a loss of our privacy. On the docks we have had a number of wildlife walkers years for the reason of bird watching and other animals that congregate here that attracts tourists from all over.  This could ruin the whole experience for all.  The wildlife will be disturbed and that would be such a shame. 

In this process us residents haven’t been considered sensitively. Our future and homes can be ruined 

It is anticipated that the works that could take up to several years will involve up to 25,000 vehicles that will be used at different times of the day and they will use a small entry point on our ground to carry out the works the Docks South side to build the residential homes. This entry point is not designed for this type of heavy machinery. We are fearful that fatalities can likely happen as families walk around here and there are many dog walkers. 

We will experience loud machinery, heavy loads being handled and generally it will be a building sight around us 24 hours a day for up to several years. This is no place for anyone to deal with on there door step for this duration of time.  

I have a child with special needs who thrives on routine and is on the spectrum of autism. His hearing is sensitive and this noise anticipated and described as tolerable. Looking at this realistically it is fundamentally deluded to think this machinery will not cause distinction and stress on us all residence here. 

My sons well being is paramount and I don’t have the money to move else where and I feel so saddened that this potentially can happen. 

Please help support me / us by signing the petition to help stop the residential homes being build at close proximity to us and cause lots of problems. 


Thank you so much.
