2019 Local Infrastructure Fund Consultation


Tower Hamlets is one of the fastest growing boroughs in the country. We know that every new development increases the pressure on things like your GP surgery or your school. It could also mean spaces like parks, roads and cycle paths feel busier than before.

That’s why we require developers building in Tower Hamlets to contribute to the Local Infrastructure Fund (LIF), a pot of money that is used to pay for projects in the communities where development is taking place. We expect the fund to generate around £6 million between April 2019 and March 2020.

We want to find out what you, our residents, think we should be spending our LIF money on. Please share your ideas about how we could use the fund to help improve your area by completing the short survey below.

This consultation will run from 30 September 2019 to 24 November 2019. A guidance document outlining the approach we are taking to this consultation is also available to download.

The easiest way to respond to the consultation is by completing the short online survey below. We would also love to see you at one of our in-person workshops. If neither of these options work for you, then why not pick up a paper copy of the survey from any of our Idea Stores.

LIF2019 map

Tower Hamlets is split into four LIF areas. We want to hear how you think the fund should be used in your area.

To begin, please select a LIF area from the list below:

LIF area 1

LIF area 2

LIF area 3

LIF area 4

Have your say at one of our workshops

We are also holding four facilitated workshop sessions at locations across the borough where the LIF will be discussed in more detail. Come and hear what sort of things the money can be spent on and contribute ideas for your areas.

Please email infrastructure.planning@towerhamlets.gov.uk or call 020 7364 5009 if you would like to register for one of the workshops.
