London Docklands Development Corporation

A quango agency set up by the U.K. Government to regenerate the depressed docklands area of east London. It helped to create Canary Wharf, Surrey Quays shopping centre, London City Airport, the Excel Exhibition Centre and the Docklands Light Railway. It was formally wound up in 1997, under a process called "dedesignation" and its powers reverted to the London Boroughs.

Investigating the magpie plaque at the New Cross V2 bomb site we found the picture source website and we think they may be responsible for that plaque.  They erect "guerilla memorials".
