Globe Town and Roman Road West consultation
About the project
The council's high streets and town centres team is working with residents and partner organisations to improve the look and feel of Roman Road West, also known as Globe Town.
In July 2019, the council’s cabinet approved £1.67 million in funding for a programme of changes including:
- Opening-up a railway arch to create a new walking route for 15,000 staff and students to connect QMUL campus with the town centre via Meath Gardens. This will increase footfall in the town centre and support high street businesses.
- The installation of new wayfinding and signage, planters on the high street and artwork to the sides of housing blocks.
- The relaunch of the market square with seating, lighting, planting and new equipment for the market traders.
- The changing of solid metal shutters into open grills on shopfronts to deter vandalism.
- The conversion of underused lock-ups near the market square into workspace.
We've been grateful for the support of the community for their help in shaping our plans so far and we're looking forward to displaying them at 189 Roman Road, E2 0QY on the following dates:
Friday 1 November from 2pm to 4pm
Tuesday 5 November from 2pm to 4pm
Saturday 9 November from 12.30pm to 3.30pm
Residents, businesses, market traders, local partners, schools and community groups are invited to visit the exhibition and comment on the emerging regeneration plans for your area.
