Mayor of Tower Hamlets John Biggs is hosting a special virtual edition of his Ask the Mayor question and answer sessions.

The event will focus on building safety, including cladding, following the recent fire at New Providence Wharf and the high numbers of tower blocks in the borough. Residents who face issues with building safety will get the chance to ask questions and get answers to the issues that matter to them.

Join us online on Thursday 22 July between 7pm and 8pm to ask your questions and get a live response.

You can submit questions in advance when you sign up, until 12pm on Thursday 22 July. On the night we will take a mixture of questions submitted in advance and questions submitted live through the chat. If you have any follow-up questions after the event, we encourage you to email mayor@towerhamlets.gov.uk(External link)(External link).

Your feedback is also very important to us. We will be asking attendees to complete a very short survey after the event to help us improve any future online Ask the Mayor sessions.


How it will work:

The event will be hosted through a Microsoft Teams Live event.

You can join on the night through a link which you will receive automatically once you register.

We recommend joining through a web browser on a computer (such as Chrome or Firefox). You can also participate through a smart phone or tablet, but on these devices you may be prompted to download a free Microsoft Teams app.

The event will go live at 7pm on Thursday 22 July - this is when the link will become live/the event will be visible. You will then be able to submit questions by typing them through a Q&A tool. You can also watch the session without asking a question.

You will not be able to turn on your camera/microphone.

  • Please take a few moments to let us know what you thought of Ask the Mayor online. Your feedback will help us plan (and if necessary, improve) future events.

    The survey contains just eight questions about the event followed by voluntary questions to help us understand a little more about who joined our event.
