Latest Progress

In summer 2021 the Council carried out a survey on its 10 street markets and received 700 responses from businesses, residents and traders. The results of the survey, plus other desk-based work have informed the Markets Improvement Plan.

The Council will publish the Draft Markets Improvement Plan 2022 - 2027 on this page in autumn 2021, with a view to receive comments and feedback from businesses, residents and traders and community groups, before it is agreed early 2022.

Introduction

Tower Hamlets includes some of the most iconic and internationally renowned street markets in London, but demographic changes, new developments, COVID-19, the rise of online shopping, and shifting consumer trends have accelerated changes affecting the way people use them.

The Council is consulting on its 10 street markets to create the borough’s first stand-alone strategy. We aim to create new opportunities for local residents, improve the customer experience and provide support for traders to grow their businesses.

The markets improvement plan will cover the borough’s market operations and help inform their future management with an individual action plan for each market. Alongside this there is an expanded focus on Whitechapel Market to support the Whitechapel Road Improvement Project (WRIP). The strategy will run from 2022 to 2027 approximately.
