Successful Levelling Up Fund bid for Whitechapel
We are pleased to announce that Tower Hamlets Council have successfully secured £9.3m from the Governments Levelling Up Fund to support the delivery of the Whitechapel Road Improvement Programme (WRIP).
The programme covers the area of Whitechapel Road from the junctions with New Road and Vallance Road, to Cambridge Heath Road and Sydney Street and will see street improvements like better pavements and more signage and seating, as well as upgrades to market stalls and essential repairs to properties along the high street.
The programme is split into four main areas;
- Whitechapel Road Public Realm Improvement Project (PRIP) to deliver 10,000 sqm of public realm works, including improved pavements, street lighting, greening and street furniture.
- Whitechapel Market Stalls Project (MSP) to provide new market stalls supporting a better trading and shopping environment.
- Whitechapel Market Management & Maintenance Project (MMMP) to deliver improved market facilities including waste management.
- Whitechapel Road Property Repair Project, to support essential building repairs to properties along the High Street.
We want to keep our community at the heart of our proposals and have consultation events coming up, to stay informed please subscribe for project updates via the sidebar on the right.
