The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and the Tower Hamlets Regeneration Team have began a joint piece of work developing a vision for the regeneration of East India Dock Basin. The project was established by the two organisations in response to the need to conduct additional repairs and to public nominations received as part of the Local Infrastructure Fund (LIF) consultations in 2017 and 2019 requesting improvements to the Basin.

East India Dock Basin is a unique open space in Tower Hamlets; it is a precious wetland habitat whilst also one of the few remnants of the East India Docks with a number of historic Grade II Listed features. The area surrounding the basin has experienced and will continue to experience rapid change, with nearby developments including City Island, Goodluck Hope and the Royal Docks at Newham. However, the surrounding area is already deficient in access to open space. There is rising pressure on the Basin from this population growth and this joint vision for the Basin will ensure the space better meets the needs of residents and visitors whilst protecting the unique space.

To deliver the aspirations in the Vision document, the Council will be working closely with the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority to take forward the actions in the Vision document including repairs and improvement works and a programme of activities. An Expression of Interest will be made to the National Heritage Lottery Fund Application later this year to assist with funding the improvement works to the Basin.

This page will be used to bring you updates on progress, manage consultations, provide links to key documents, and provide a platform for continued public engagement with the project.
