Our virtual 'On Location' event explored the progress made in the docks over the past few years.
Once London’s gateway to the world, today this vast area in the London Borough of Newham is one of the UK’s most important regeneration stories. A new chapter in the history of the Royal Docks is already underway, with total investment in the area likely to reach over £5 billion over the next 20 years.
The Royal Docks is evolving as a unique place and growing home for business and culture at the centre of the wider transformation of East London and the meeting point of two major areas of the capital identified for housing and growth: an Opportunity Area and London’s only Enterprise Zone.
With significant investment, the Royal Docks is re-emerging as a commercial and cultural hub of global significance. Central to the Enterprise Zone Delivery Plan is people and place. How can we seize the opportunity and energy of the recovery period to ensure the Royal Docks continues to be a focus for London?
