“Thanks to plans developed by the islands owners, the Thames and General Lighterage Company, and John Watson, owner of John’s Boat Works Ltd, the Lot’s Ait boatyard and workshops with its principal tidal dock and specialist equipment will be sympathetically restored to its former glory and the remaining tidal docks will be made available as leisure moorings. Amongst other improvements a footbridge will be installed to provide pedestrian access and finally an area of the island fronting the Thames will remain untouched to provide a natural habitat for the local wildlife.”
