Second stage of Tidal Thames Masterplan launched

Tower Hamlets and Newham

Newham buildings river

Strategic opportunities have been identified for the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Newham in East London, following the launch of the second phase of the PLA's Tidal Thames Masterplan.

Supporting the PLA's delivery of its strategy for the Thames (Thames Vision 2050), the Tidal Thames Masterplan is meticulously detailing the potential to boost trade, travel, sport, and the environment in the 22 local authority areas along the 95 miles of the Thames within the PLA's jurisdiction, from west London out to the estuary, thus providing an influential guide for investment.


As James Trimmer, PLA's Planning & Development Director, explained: "This second stage of our Tidal Thames Masterplan, looking at these two neighbouring London Boroughs, is unveiling some interesting opportunities, allowing a panoramic view of the possibilities across east London in terms of river development. As we continue to roll out the process to other boroughs, the Tidal Thames Masterplan is fast becoming an essential guide for investment across all 22 local authority areas along the river's banks."

The next stage of the Tidal Thames Masterplan will be the consultations for the London Borough of Greenwich and Kent Borough of Gravesham, which will be launched imminently and take place over six weeks.
