With its good transport links and location next to Canary Wharf, this part of the Isle of Dogs has been identified as a “growth area” for new homes and jobs. To manage this growth the Council is preparing a Masterplan to help shape future development in the area and provide appropriate facilities for the local community, alongside new housing and employment space. The Masterplan will become a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to the Tower Hamlets Core Strategy 2025.
It’s never been more exciting to live in Tower Hamlets, with London 2012 taking place next summer, the growth in the City and Canary Wharf, and the Thames Gateway Development, putting Tower Hamlets firmly at the heart of London’s future growth and success. It is important to take advantage of these opportunities, managing growth and change within the borough, improving areas in a way that meets the current and future needs of Tower Hamlets communities. In order to achieve this it is essential that residents are involved in shaping these plans for change.
We want to talk to local people to find out their priorities for this area. To do this we will be holding public exhibitions at different locations in and around the Masterplan area in May 2011. Council officers will be available at the exhibitions to discuss the options for the Masterplan, record your views and comments and to answer any questions about the Masterplan. Details of these events are below:
Asda Supermarket, Isle of Dogs Store
Saturday 14 May, 10am-1pm
Canary Wharf, Jubilee Place
Monday 16 May, 12pm-7pm
Jack Dash House (Tower Hamlets Council offices), Marsh Wall
Wednesday 18 May, 12pm-6pm
There will also be an evening workshop at Jack Dash House on Thursday 19 May from 6:30 – 8:30pm to discuss some of the key issues for the Masterplan in more detail. If you are interested in joining the workshop, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7364 5327 by Friday 13 May to leave your contact details.
