3. What are your top five priorities for Silvertown's future? (Select five)
• Activating the water & dockside
• Promoting active lifestyles
• Public & open green spaces
• Environmental sustainability
• Improved transport & connectivity
5. What activities and facilities would you like to see happen in open spaces across the masterplan?
Cycling, walking, playing areas for children
8. What amenities would you like to see? (Pick 3)
• Sports facilities
• Places to eat and drink
• Educational facilities
6. What would you like to see along the waterfront?
A broad, car-free path for pedestrians and cycles, just like everywhere else around the dock, connecting with the path along the rest of the dock to close the loop.
9. Do you have any other comments on the information about the masterplan presented above or on previous pages?
Again - the bridge should be straight (ie. shorter) and right next to the existing bridge to maximise the benefits for all local residents.
N Woolwich Road is a huge annoyance and anything to lessen its impact (air pollution, noise, danger for children) would be a huge plus.
4. Do you have any comments on the masterplan, presented above?
I believe the bridge landing should be further to the west (ie. closer to the existing bridge landing) to make it more accessible to residents of Britannia Village and Royal Wharf, while keeping it equally accessible for Silvertown residents as the bridge will be shorter.
I am against having industrial/light manufacturing work space in the area as this draws road traffic and pollution. This is premium location in London, we should aim to have premium work spaces (eg. offices, university, etc). Tower Hamlets has Canary Wharf, a beautiful area with hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs - we should aim for something similar in Newham and not for low-value industrial estates.
7. Please tell us what you think the priorities for movement and travel should be? (Please pick 5 top priorities)
• Improved cycle lanes
• Increasing walking routes
• Public transport improvements
• Reduction in car usage
1. What do you value most about the Silvertown area?
Limited car traffic, walkability/cyclability, easy public transport
2. How can this be reflected in future development?
Keeping the priority for pedestrians and cycles over cars (eg. minimise parking spaces in new developments, strict speed limits).
Make the area as green as possible.
Make Custom House station easily accessible with the new bridge.

• Local, independent shops
Yes, I think the South end of the new bridge should land on the West end of the jetty to ensure it is slightly nearer for Britainnia Village residents
• Accessibility and step-free access
• Cultural spaces
The open water
dont infill the docks, I know plenty who will object to this scheme if your do. There are acres and acres of derelict land, why fill in one of the areas assets. Its just pure greed
• Independent shops
• New restaurants & cultural activities
Lido, water sports, zorbing
The history and dock
Cycle lanes, waterfront restaurants, kid friendly spaces
The prospect of seeing the area develop, the green space
keeping the green space
• Creating new jobs & diverse workspaces
• Educational buildings & opportunities
gym, areas to sit and read in the open air
• Healthcare facilities
The new development needs to take into consideration professionals and not solely focused on youth and families.
