Have your say on plans to transform a Stepney housing estate.

Swan Housing Association is inviting people who live on the Exmouth Estate, just off Commercial Road, to share their views on a proposed redevelopment.

A detailed plan is being created but the intention is to create 250 new homes as well as community facilities, new shops and green spaces. There will also be a series of environmental improvements.

Swan has been consulting with those living on or near the estate since October last year, and a second round of consultation events is set to take place from Tuesday, September 8 to Thursday, September 10.

This will take place online due to coronavirus restrictions and is designed to gather feedback on details such as building heights, outdoor spaces and commercial facilities.

A planning application is due to be submitted to Tower Hamlets Council early next year.
