Local Infrastructure Fund
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.
Take a look at the some projects that have already been approved.
We expect the fund to generate around £6 million between April 2019 and March 2020.
Between September and November 2019, we ran a consultation to find out what you, our residents, think we should be spending our LIF money on. A guidance document outlining the approach we took is available to download.
We will report back on the outcome of the consultation in early 2020.
