Dockland Settlements News

The Dockland Settlements Centre in Rotherhithe has applied for planning permission from Southwark Council to build a small log cabin on a currently unused concrete area overlooking the astroturf pitch.


We are just waiting for tenders to come back then we can start fundraising for the project.


Please download details of the plans by clicking here and if you have any questions contact Ben North on ben.north@docklandsettlements.org.uk or pop into the centre and speak to a member of staff.

The Dockland Settlements would like to thank and wish luck to our Marathon runners who have been busy training and raising funds for our charity in the build up to the Virgin London 2017 Marathon. Here is our list of heroes who will be pounding the streets of London on Sunday 23rd April. If you see anyone in a Dockland Settlements vest please give them a big cheer. They run past our community centre in Rotherhithe and our old community centre on the Isle of Dogs so please keep an eye out for them!
