On 9 February 2016 The Garden Bridge Trust submitted an application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) for a marine licence to construct The Garden Bridge, a proposed pedestrian bridge over the River Thames in London.
The Project includes a proposed new pedestrian bridge crossing the River Thames between Temple Underground Station and Queen’s Walk in London. The Bridge will be approximately 360m in length and vary in width between approximately 6m and 33m. The site includes land on the North Bank of the Thames near Temple Underground Station, including the northern foreshore of the Thames, and land on the South Bank incorporating The Queens Walk and the southern foreshore of the Thames.
The Project also includes the relocation of HQS Wellington, currently moored at the western end of Temple Stairs, approximately 38m downstream. The relocation will require the installation of new mooring dolphins, access ramps and floating platforms to access the vessel in its new position. The existing dolphins and ramps will be removed making the new position permanent. Due to the shallow water level around the ship some dredging is required. The Project also includes the relocation of Crown River Cruise berths.
The MMO determined the marine licence application on 29 July 2016 and all information relating to the MMO’s decision is contained within the Environmental Impact Assessment consent decision report.
The marine licence L/2016/00218/1 is available from the marine licensing public register.
