The Tower Hamlets Place-Shaping team are looking for 20 young people, aged 16-25 years, from the borough, to be part of an exciting, two-hour online workshop on a new planning document on Tuesday, 16th of February 2pm-4pm . You will be reimbursed for your time with a voucher valued at £20. This is your opportunity to have your voice heard!
ABOUT THE CENTRAL AREA GOOD GROWTH CONSULTATION
The Central Area Good Growth consultation will run from January to February 2021. It focuses on getting input from people in the area about the proposed design guidance for the area. As part of the consultation, we want to reach out to the young residents across the borough. We believe that young people’s voice should be heard more in planning consultations, so we are proactively working to achieve that. This is especially relevant as the planning guidance we are consulting on will be adopted for a long period of time and therefore it will help to shape your future in the area.
If you are an interested and passionate young person who fits our brief, we’d love to hear from you! See below for further details and how to apply. 👇 👇 👇
