The Council decides the future for our homes tonight!

Here we go again! Tonight local residents will attend the SIXTH MEETING of the Strategic Development Committee of Tower Hamlets Council. On the agenda is EastendHomes' SECOND planning application for a redevelopment which has major implications for most of our homes on the Eric/Treby Street Estate and in Brokesley Street.

Tonight Tower Hamlets Council's Strategic Development Committee will decide the future for our homes.
Have EastendHomes got it right this time?

Should the Director of Planning be recommending it be approved?

We certainly do not think so. The second planning application is virtually identical to the last one - which was REFUSED by Committee in September!
The Mile End Residents Association has also submitted a 37 page letter of objection identifying a number of NEW CONCERNS and the associated policy/legislative reasons for refusal. If you live in the area and are on our MERA mailing list you can contact MERA and obtain a copy of this.

Do you live in the consultation area? Were you consulted by:
  • EastendHomes?
  • the Council?
If you want to attend the meeting

Why not come along tonight and hear what two local residents and your local Councillors have to say about this application?

EastendHomes were very busy over the weekend taking down all the posters which gave people details of how to get to the meeting. Hence why we've now included our poster on this blog. If you've got a poster please put it in your window.
