Our first virtual 'On Location' event explored the progress made in the Royal 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.
 
The Royal Docks is currently in the spotlight given the recent proposal to relocate City Hall to the area. Moving the seat of London government to the Royal Docks would undoubtedly help accelerate the area’s regeneration, however there are already exciting developments underway.  As London’s only Enterprise Zone, the Royal Docks has a very ambitious future as a globally significant centre of enterprise, employment and culture.
