Have your say on Fish Island's future

Ask the Mayor

Residents quiz the mayor on issues which matter to them

John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, is inviting all residents, particularly from Fish Island, to the next, ‘Ask the Mayor’ session on Wednesday 21 June, at Hub67, 67 Rothbury Road, E9 5HA from 7.30pm – 9pm.

The 'Ask the Mayor' Question and Answer session will focus on the future of the Fish Island area and gives local people the chance to put questions to Mayor Biggs and quiz him about plans for the area and the wider borough.

The Mayor has also invited representatives from the police and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to join him, to respond to concerns about anti-social behaviour and the management of development on Fish Island. 

The event is open to any Tower Hamlets resident. To attend, and you can sign up on Evenbrite.

Mayor Biggs said: “Fish Island is undergoing massive change as the regeneration of the Olympic Park and surrounding areas gathers pace. Whilst this offers some fantastic opportunities for residents and local businesses, I am clear that change has to also meet the needs of our existing communities.

“From maximising the amount of affordable homes to ensuring we have enough good quality schools and securing safe streets,  I am committed to working with local people to make Fish Island’s future a success. To do that we need to hear from as many residents as possible so I hope you are able to join us for what I’m sure will be a lively discussion.”

If you would like to raise questions or concerns with the Mayor, but you are unable to attend on the night, you can get in touch with him at www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/ContactTheMayor
