Tower Hamlets is one of the fastest growing boroughs in the country. We know that every new development increases the pressure on things like your GP surgery or your school. It could also mean spaces like parks, roads and cycle paths feel busier than before.

That’s why we require developers building in Tower Hamlets to contribute to the Local Infrastructure Fund (LIF), a pot of money that is used to pay for projects in the communities where development is taking place. We expect the fund to generate more than £2.5 million between April 2021 and March 2022.

Take a look at some of the projects that were funded in previous years:



Have your say in 2021

We're running a further consultation from Monday 8th November 2021 ending 20th December 2021 (for a 6 week period). We want to find out what you, our residents, think we should be spending our LIF money on in each area. Please note we are only requesting new project ideas so please do not re-submit ideas you've already suggested in 2017, 2019 or 2020.

There are two ways to offer your suggestions:

(1) The first is to drop a pin on one of our interactive maps. Select one of the LIF areas below and follow the instructions. If you're not sure which area your suggestion falls into, you can refer to the image above.

LIF Area 1

LIF Area 2

LIF Area 3

LIF Area 4

(2) If you'd prefer to provide your suggestions in a more traditional questionnaire survey way - you can use our LIF questionnaire form.

About You Survey

Once you've taken part in the consultation, we'd love it if you could take a couple of minutes to fill in our 'about you' survey .This will help us to understand a bit more about who is taking part so we can make sure the views of people across our diverse community are represented.

Talk to the team directly

In previous years, we've been able to get out and about in the borough and meet with residents in person to discuss what their area needs. Covid-19 means that this year, in person events are not possible.

Instead, we're giving you the option to arrange a call back by emailing the team using the details on this page or to join one of our online Q&A sessions being hosted on Teams.

To arrange a call back, email us: LIF@towerhamlets.gov.uk or call us on 0207 364 5009 (weekdays 9am to 5pm).
