Tower Hamlets Plan 2018-2023

The Tower Hamlets Plan 2018-23 sets out  the Tower Hamlets Partnership’s five year vision for the borough, articulating local aspirations, needs and priorities. It informs all other strategies and delivery plans of the partnership, including the council’s Strategic Plan.


In the summer of 2017 we commissioned a range of evidence gathering projects to provide a robust evidence base for a new borough plan. We met with our partners, stakeholders and residents to understand the local concerns. We have used this information to help us identify our key objective for this plan: tackling inequality by building a strong, inclusive and fair borough and the four themes that we will focus on. These are:

  • a better deal for children and young people: aspiration, education and skills
  • good jobs and employment
  • strong, resilient and safe communities
  • better health and wellbeing.

The Tower Hamlets Plan is a plan for all of us - those of us who live in the borough, people who work and study here and our thriving voluntary and community sector.

Annual report (2019)

The Tower Hamlets Plan Annual Report outlines the key priorities, activities, challenges and achievements against the Tower Hamlets Plan, over the last year. It is important to mark a year since the Tower Hamlets Plan was adopted by recognising the work that has taken place in the borough and by continuing to share our partnership journey.

The report also introduces new outcome measures, which help us to monitor progress against the outcomes we identified in the Plan. The outcomes reflect our desire, as a partnership, to focus on issues where we could work together to improve the lives of Tower Hamlets residents.
