The London Borough of Tower Hamlets Markets Improvement Plan was adopted at the 9th of March Cabinet. You can access the adopted strategy opposite.

Background

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets Markets Improvement Plan 2022 – 2027 sets out the Council’s approach to improving the performance and competitiveness of our 10 street markets, with an enhanced focus on Whitechapel Market to support the Whitechapel Road Improvement Programme. The Plan was based upon desk-based research and analysis, internal and external interviews, and a survey of shoppers, businesses and market traders that took place May – June 2021 and further consultation based on the Draft Plan that took place November – December 2021.

The Plan sets the scene for London’s markets, street trading and high streets and how they impact the borough’s markets. It proposes a vision for our markets and priorities for the next five years to ensure they can adapt, where needed, and remain strong into the future.

The Plan considers the context in which the council’s street markets operate, in relation to high streets and town centres, the Covid-19 pandemic, London-wide initiatives and complementary strategies and policies within the council.

The Plan proposes a vision for our market and key priorities for the five years ahead, from 2022 – 2027. The Plan goes on to identify 10 themes on which survey participants commented most frequently and will have the biggest impact on the future of the markets. It also references known funding opportunities and performance metrics for how change can be monitored.

In tandem with the Plan, individual action plans were developed for each of our 10 street markets and a more focused action plan covering Whitechapel Market to support the Whitechapel Road Improvement Programme. In creating individual market action plans, each market has a focused plan for improvements, subject to funding and resource, to work towards better serving their customers whilst providing traders with upgraded facilities
