The Gasworks Dock Partnership (GDP) is a charity based in the London Borough of Newham. It aims ‘to build a framework for regeneration through the development of social enterprise's that provide employment, educational and cultural facilities’.
Built in the 1870’s, Cody Dock had not benefitted from the recent regeneration of east London. It was the last barrier to people being able to walk the length of the Lea River; a 26-mile riverside walk, running from Hertfordshire to the Thames.
Cody Dock is a GDP community led environmental project. Its vision is a vibrant working marina and centre for the arts. Future aims for Cody Dock include:
- Access to Lower Lea’s environment
- Developing an arts and creative based community
- Forging links with the wider community
- Nurturing a sustainable income to enable the development and support of arts, cultural and educational programs.
