THE GREEN light has been given to a plan to encourage wildlife to come to live in Tower Hamlets.

By law the council has to come up with a five year action plan to help encourage wildlife and make the East End a greener place to live.

It includes plans to create hedgehog habitats on housing estates and help pay for more trees, plants and seeds to plant in Tower Hamlets and encourage people to set up bee hives.

It also aims to encourage wildlife gardens and help businesses come up with their own biodiversity plans.

Environmentalists will also help people set up beehives in Tower Hamlets and get them involved in clearing up rubbish from the River Thames.
