    Packing Works falls within the Empson Street Strategic Industrial Land and the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area. The former factory building is largely derelict and has been vacant for a number of decades and so any proposal to reuse the site is expected to require detailed planning permission.

    Any development here will be required to protect the setting of the waterways and surviving historic buildings, including Packing Works. The opportunity exists for appropriate new development to enhance the character and appearance of the Conservation Area, to open up access to the canal and encourage waterside activity. Each party is advised to make their own enquiries with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
