The Chelsea Society supports the houseboat dwellers in Chelsea Reach who are trying to avoid eviction. These houseboats have become part of the charm of Chelsea, and we do not want to see them replaced with boats which are too large or have an inappropriate design.
There is a petition which members may wish to sign, at https://www.change.org/p/royal-borough-of-kensington-and-chelsea-save-our-chelsea-houseboats-and-make-them-an-asset-of-community-value-2916b637-28ac-4c70-a892-ea0bc7ac8c9f?recruiter=248209366&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive
By contrast, on the downstream side of Battersea Bridge we do not want to see Cadogan pier become a floating caravan park. This is a pier for pleasure and commercial vessels navigating the river.
