New TPOs at Blasker Walk and Thomas Road
The council has protected several trees in the borough with two new Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs).
One of the TPOs protects an Ash tree in Thomas Road and the other, 10 Plane trees in Blasker Walk. The council is now keen to know what local residents and stakeholders think about these TPOs.

This consultation will close on Friday 28 October 2022.
Conservation areas in and around Whitechapel
The council consulted on revised character appraisals and management guidelines for five consultation areas in and around Whitechapel. The consultation took place between Monday 11 February and Sunday 24 March 2019.
The revised documents are intended to replace previous character appraisals and management guidelines that were drawn up over ten years ago. The new documents respond to the physical changes that have taken place in the conservation areas over this period, and to changes in national and local planning policy and guidance. In response to these changes, the council is proposing to amend the boundaries of each of the conservation areas; removing some areas and adding others.
The council is carefully considering all of the comments that were received in response to this consultation, and a timetable for the adoption of these documents will be published in due course
Proposed additions to the local list
The council consulted on a proposal to add forty one buildings to the local list. The consultation took place between Monday 11 February and Sunday 24 March 2019.
Buildings are added to the local list in recognition of their value as irreplaceable historic assets, which contribute to the quality of the local environment by enhancing the street scene and sustaining a sense of distinctiveness.
After giving careful consideration to all of the comments that were received in response to the consultation, the council decided, at a meeting of Cabinet on 31 July 2019, to add all forty one buildings to the local list.
New additions to the local list are available on request,
