A fortnight of public consultations begins on Thursday over shaping the future of London’s East End till the year 2030. This includes ideas for housing, business developments, shopping, schools and green spaces over the next 10 to 15 years.
The Local Plan being compiled by Tower Hamlets Council is a guideline for planning consent for the next decade.
“Feedback from this consultation will play a critical role in shaping the future,” Tower Hamlets cabinet member Rachel Blake said.
“Affordable homes, jobs, leisure and shopping facilities are important. We want people to help harness opportunities by being part of the consultation to develop the Local Plan.”
The consultation goes “on the road” from Thursday, stopping first at Poplar’s Idea Store at Market Square in Chrisp Street Market, off East India Dock Road, 11.30am to 2.30pm.
