The leader of Greenwich council (London) has confirmed plans to build a cruise terminal at Enderby Wharf in Greenwich have been abandoned.

In a statement, Danny Thorpe said he was “pleased” that site owners Morgan Stanley had agreed to cancel the project.

Plans for the cruise terminal were hit by environmental concerns from campaigners, who claimed the project would lead to a surge in dangerous levels of air pollution.

Malcolm says: Good! I have quite a fondness for the historic (1930) Tilbury terminal which is down the river Thames, from Greenwich. It has deep water and is underutilised these days. It would surely be cheaper to upgrade Tilbury, than build a new terminal, plus very few people live nearby, it’s an industrial area.
