The Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document was adopted in March 2021. Thank you to all who took part and gave feedback.

The adopted document is the result of revisions following the two public consultations in 2020.

As one of the fastest-growing boroughs in the capital, Tower Hamlets has seen a significant amount of development in recent years. More of the same is expected in the coming years.

The council recognises that while growth is inevitable, there are steps that can be taken to ensure that it is delivered sensitively, taking account of population increases and providing benefits to new and existing communities.

One of the ways that is achieved is by including obligations for developers as part of planning permissions. These can include everything from affordable housing and open space to employment, training and affordable workspace.
