THE Master Plan for future developments in London's East End over the next 12 years have been released by Town Hall bosses this week.

A document setting out 'options' and 'alternatives' was published yesterday (Wednesday) by Tower Hamlets Council.

It's intended for public consultation and provides "a vision for the overall physical transformation of Tower Hamlets through to 2020."

Local Development Framework Core Strategy sets out how the Town Hall will respond to planning and regeneration plans submitted in the next few years.

Two main options are put forward to shape Tower Hamlets, focussing on developing centres or allowing 'organic growth and development' across the borough.

"We have to provide more genuinely affordable housing, support the regeneration of local centres and improve open spaces and the environment," said the council's Development cabinet member Marc Francis.

"The council will be listening over the next three to four months and we want to hear what ordinary East Enders think.

"Any changes will affect them, their children and grandchildren well into the future."

Consultations take place until September 2, followed by detailed consultation later that month.
