Plans to regenerate an East End housing estate are going before Tower Hamlets council again next Tuesday despite residents saying they have "hardly changed".

Under the plans for the Eric and Treby Estates in Mile End existing buildings would be refurbished while 14 bed-site unites would be demolished.

Blocks up to seven stories high would be built to provide 179 flats.

Two community buildings and a management office are also part of the plans.

But residents opposed to the scheme say the revised scheme are no different from plans that went before the planning committee last September.

Lene Milaa said: "The changes East End Homes have made hardly begin to address the four reasons for refusal-loss of open space, not enough provision for social housing, loss of car parking, and concerns over amenities and the design."
