High Streets & Town Centres

High Streets play a vital role in Tower Hamlets, providing essential goods and services, offering jobs for local people, and act as hubs for our communities.

The High Streets & Town Centres (HS&TC) team has developed a High Streets & Town Centres Strategy. The Strategy sets out the council's approach to improving the performance and competitiveness of our key high streets and town centres. It also considers the role the borough's street markets have in adding character to local high streets and support the retail offer. The Strategy was adopted in October 2018, and can be viewed via the link below.
