London Borough of Tower Hamlets

London Borough of Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets has played a significant role in the social, political and economic history of London. Over the centuries, the borough has been a focal point for London and the UK, acting as a key trading route to the east from Central London. Today, the Borough has grown into a well-connected, world-class hub for financial, technological and creative industries, with the energy, drive, capacity and personality to become an exciting place to live, work, spend leisure time as well as become the setting for future innovations in subjects such as the Life Sciences.

A new Local Plan, adopted in January 2020, sets out how the area will grow and develop from now until 2031. It identifies how many new homes, especially affordable new homes, jobs and services are needed to support a young and growing population, and where and how they should be provided. It will also shape how our places will look, and feel and influence the way that our diverse and valuable communities interact with each other, local facilities and the spaces around them. It also provides a series of policies focussed on managing this substantial growth and sharing the benefits. These ensure development is well-designed, accessible, safe and respects and enhances the environment, our unique built heritage and can be delivered alongside new infrastructure and local services.

Complete information on the borough’s Local Plan can be found here.
