Plantation Wharf Owners Consult On Name Change After Anger Over Slavery Links

2 0 1

The owners of a development called “Plantation Wharf” have launched a consultation over a potential name change.

It comes amid row over the south west London development that is named after the transatlantic slave trade.

Battersea MP Marsha de Cordova has described signposts around Plantation Wharf in her constituency as “sickening”.

The Labour MP said the site “makes a mockery” of the history of the brutal transatlantic slave trade.

She added: “Last year I called on Wandsworth Council to review the appropriateness and relevance of current monuments, statues, streets and building names to ensure they are compatible our anti-racism values. It needs to be change.”

I feel like maybe this is a bad way to brand your housing development...........
